I need help with potty training! Adelaide will be 3 in November. I'm getting a lot of comments about training her but trying which I do on random days (yesterday was one of those days) is not going well at all.

She doesn't stay dry for 2 hours at a time. She doesn't seem to know she is about to go. She gags violently when she sees her own stools.

She did poop on the potty once and gagged really bad, I expected that but now she won't try. She has never peed on the potty.  She has in fact peed just after I take her off.  Usually she says "uh oh wet" after she pees on the carpet or th esofa on the days that we try big girl pants with a timer, having her sit on the potty every 15 min.

Is she not ready (they wouldn't except that if it were preschool would they?). What really works from real moms?

I want to be done with diapers soon for her but I don't want to mess her up and then have a worse fight on my hands by doing it wrong and freaking her out.

Help????

Great ration for a beginner! :smileyhappy:

Ben seems to want to determine when he'll go to the bathroom, so sometimes it's a bit of a hassle getting him there, but my timing is still correct most of the time. We'll see how that works - I might just have to relinquish control to him. :smileywink: He also had a clean day yesterday, telling me he had poop when I was busy with laundry and he had been in another room. Hooray for volunteering rather than making me catch him in the act! :smileywink:
