Quoting Mommy to 2 beautiful kids:" My daughter is completely potty trained during the day now how do i get the same thing for night time? lol She practically done it on her own. She didn't like the feeling of the dirty dipe."
Saaame here. Taegyn did it on her own basically and I'm still have trouble in the night. We've been using pull ups at night the entire time. I've stopped drinks near bedtime and all that but to no avail. Any ideas ladies?

I started my PT my daughter at about 21 months and she did great. Now she is 28 months and has just started refusing to go potty on the toilet. Could this have anything to do with me getting ready to have another baby? I'm due Nov. 5th and really want her to be done with this stage of not going potty on the toilet. I'm at a loss here. I don't know what else to do. Like i said she did just fine except for overnight until now. Now she won't tell me if she has to go she just does it in her pants. And I refuse to scold her for it because I don't believe in that. Every time she wets her pants I take her to the toilet and tell her that this is where she is suppose to go potty. It really seems like she doesn't care anymore. I'm wondering if maybe me going to have another baby soon has some effect on it? HELP!!!!quote

im at a total loss with my 2 year old she was doing so well at one point and now she pretty much refuses to go. i will take her in to sit on the potty and she will sit there sometimes and others she will get up and try to play in the bathroom. we had her down to 1 to 2 diaper changes during the day the rest of the time she went in the potty now its everytime in her diaper and not once in the potty. we have tired taking her every 30min or more often, the "training pants" underwear, pull ups with the fading designs, regular underwear and nothing seems to work. we have done sticker charts and giving her a reward for having a certain number of stickers. i cant find anything that works for her at all. my MIL refuses to watch her anymore until she is potty trained meaning me and DH are no longer to go out and have some time to ourselves until we can figure out a way to get her potty trained or find someone else to watch her. My mother said i was 3 before i was potty trained and im starting to get the feeling that DD is going to be the same way. anyone have any adivce that worked for them? we have a potty chair and im wondering if maybe one that goes on the big potty might help her? she loves flushing the big potty and telling mommy's peepee bye bye and her own when we can get her to go in the potty and we dump it in the big potty so im wondering if hearing her peepee and poopy hit the water will helpquote

I almost had my Daughter potty trained then i got pregnant and had the baby and it messed it up
Who cares what statistics say... they will go when they are ready!
You cant force them to do it. Just like you cant force them to walk. It takes time. Its not on your time, its on theirs!!!

Oh god.. This potty training thing is tough... I had her sit on her little potty for 15 minutes as soon as she woke up. Nothing. I leave for 2 minutes to get her some milk to help force it out of her, as I was walking back with the milk, she comes running out of the bathroom clapping and going "Yay!!" So I run into the bathroom and look in her potty, nothing. Then I do the logical thing and look around, she had in fact gone potty. Peed on the rug... and there was a turd on the floor. I had pick it up and throw in the big toilet, where I found other little turds. Guess she just missed one.quote

My daughter turned 2 in October. She is pretty much completely potty trained going "pee" but 'pooping' on the potty is a completely different story. Anyone have any suggestions on how I can get her to poop on the potty? I have tried giving her candy afterwards, me going and showing her, when she has an accident putting the poop in the potty and telling her thats where it goes, making different noises, isolating her when she is trying, sitting in there with her, watching for signs on when she has to go..HELP!!!quote

I don't know if I agree with "younger is better", at least for my kid but hopefully someone can help me out.
My son just turned 4 on the 25th. We started potty training (again) about a month ago. He is doing awesome with pee. I don't even have to remind him to go, he hasn't had an accident in a couple weeks.
But he will NOT poo on the potty. He won't even try. He freaks out crying and flapping (he's autistic) if I try to make him sit on the potty if he has to poo.
It's reallllllly irritating me. I try not to let it affect me but sometimes I get so mad that I am still changing poo undies 1-2 times a day.

My son is 2yrs 4mths and afraid of the potty. What do I do?? I couldn't start potty training before 2 because I could tell he wasn't ready... and then I had his little brother the day after he turned 2 so I've just had to put it off for a while. Now that I'm in a good rhythm and want to try.. he's afraid. :/ Any advice appreciated!! quote

My daughter just stopped peeing in diapers at night and she's about to be 4... She just quit doing it on her own, but I would recommend not letting them drink anything an hour or so before bedtime and having them go to the bathroom before bed

Is it so wrong to wait until the child is ready? My 3 yr clearly knows when he needs to go to the bathroom and I have tried many things to incent him to go on the potty, and he has on many occasions but not consistently. So I have decided to wait for him to be ready on his own, regardless of how annoyed and frustrated that I am still changing poopy diapers!quote

i've been pretty lax about PT with my 17 mo. she comes into the bathrooms and says, "mommy I pee!" sits on her potty and makes a pee sound. i asked if she wanted her diaper off and she ran like a bat out of hell! i guess its a start.quote

My son even tells me he doesn't want to wear his diapers and promises not to pee, but no matter how many times and I ask and try to remind him, he still ends up going to the bathroom in his pants.quote
