Just keep taking her, I started by taking DD every 15 minutes.  Try giving her a reward for sitting on the potty, like an M&M or a sticker.

Do you have an open bathroom at your house? By that I mean is it a private thing or do you  have an open door bathroom? maybe you should ask your mother in law what she does at her house. The m&m thing does work really well. Also you need to make sure that it is easy for her to access things in the bathroom. Do you have a stool for her? Also having special soap and a towel for her to clean up makes it feel like her own special place. You could even make it fun by taking her to the store to get these things and have her pick them out. When my daughter started asking me about the potty that is when I potty trained her. It only took a week.

To be quite honest, 2 is still rather young. Take her cue. She will let you know when she is ready.

I am stuck too. My dd went on the potty for almost a month, everywhere even here at home. Then all the sudden she stopped. I can't get her to use it at all. She tells me, Me Baby no pee. So I don't know how to get her back on track.

My son did this same thing. He was already fully potty trained and then one day he didn't want to use the potty anymore. we areworking on it now and sometimes he still has accidents it took a while for him to get back on track. I am not sure what made him change his mind.

I don't think it's too young. I think it depends on the child. My oldest is now 4 and had no interest in potty training til almost 3. My youngest is 17 months and sits on the potty chair already. Just depends on the child.
