What is the easiest and best way to potty train my almost 3 y/o daughter?
Going through the same thing here. I tried taking away her diapers and taking her to the potty every hour or so but dh says that's mean and puts the diaper back on her. Tried taking her to the potty every hour or so and not taking away the diaper but she just sits there and as soon as she gets back up and I put the diaper on, she pees in the diaper. Very hard when parents are not on the same page. Good luck!
Put her in underwear
I'm in the same PT boat. One thing that I recommend is not to push it. I did and my dd started to get night terrors. Now when she wets her diaper at night she wakes up and cries. I feel soo bad. Needless to say we're on a potty training break. Good luck.
We just went through this. If you push it she will push right back and then all will be frustrated. We left dd in her pull ups, put up a chart and took her to the potty every 20-30 minutes. Yes she peed in her pull up and yes she did start peeing in the potty. About 2 weeks later she was fully trained. Another FYI tip - get a potty seat and disinfectant spray that is dedicated to take when you go out. The potty seat will keep them from falling into the gaping crevace that is a public toilet and it will give your child a sense of ownership and ecourage to use the potty. Remember REWARD REWARD REWARD. Punishment will only cause frustration for both of you.
My daughter started going to daycare and that helped A LOT. otherwise I give her little snacks and treats if she goes on the potty.
