Do you still use diappers? If so stop. Take them away. If she don't have them to use she will not like the feeling and want to use the toilet. I did it with dd and it seems to have worked. She is fully potty trained.

mine, either.

she turned 3 last week.
She absolutely refuses to have anything to do with it.

And I've tried everything. She won't even put on panties.
I'm just going to wait until she is ready. Fighting about it isn't worth to me.

My daughter didn't train until one month before her 4th birthday. I tried everything. But presents for poop worked, candy for pee. She could have cared less about the candy. But I had 7 presents for her wrapped up. If she pooped in the potty she got to pick one. But once she was out of presents she was on her own. She did fine.

Good luck! I know your pain. But she will eventually do it, I promise! Even though you don't think so. I kept telling myself in a year or sooner I will have a great story to tell but going through it was exasperating.

we do use the diapers especially overnight.  Thanks for the tip!

thanks ladies.  I guess her going half way and sometime all the time elsewhere is confusing to me.  Not to mention expensive.  Thanks for all the tips and feedback.

This may work it may not... But when my oldest was potty traning i told her she was a big girl wearing panties and when she would use it on her self i'd hold my nose and say shew u stink... It got to the point to where i made her clean her poopie underwear.. That never worked by the way... I had the hardest time with her ever... Then i started talking to her about head start and all the kool things she would get to do and babies cant go to head start... But big girls that wear painties and use the potty gets to go... Thats how i did it ever kid has there own thing that works.. My cousin let her's pic there snack if they done good that day... The important thing is keep at it dont quit or give up... You will find what works.... Much love and good luck.. Hugs
