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:

I'm getting discouraged again. She will happily sit on the potty. We keep reminding her and seh is happy to run to the potty and sit on it. She sees that as a reward in and of itself. But she has only made it to the potty once t actually pee, the one I told you about. She now holds her stools till she gets back in her diaper at night. We told her that she has to go on the potty even when she is wearing a diaper. ( We can just snap it looser and pull it down) We are only putting it on righ tbefore bed anyway. UGh. She is happy to clean up th efloor. That's pretty much her personality, compliant. She says "put the water in the potty" (not sure where she got that but it's fine with me). Is it normal for them to miss it every single time? 

As soon as she pees (on the floor) she runs to the potty and sits on it to try.  So is this the next stage? Now that she knows how to get her pants up and down alone, and what is to go in the potty - Is this the next (and hardest step) to leard to feel the feeling and realize that pee is about to come? (that's my guess but I don't know if I'm right). This may be the hardest part of parenting so far. :smileytongue:  

Jennifer, that's how I was thinking too, that I didn't care but as I think about it I don't want her to get comfortable with wet pants. And, cloth diapering with only 8 diapers is a lot of laundry. Rinsing diapers takes all day it's just really hard so if she can I'd like her to be finished with them. If we have another baby then I'll have to start over but I'm pretty discouraged  on that front.

Most kids don't like that feeling of wet or lumpy pants. Adelaide doesn't seem to care at all if she is in a diaper but if she is in panties she wants them off right away. she can so almost all of the things on that list with the exception that if she does it in a diaper she doesn't tell me.  

I think I need lots of prayer. :smileyfrustrated:

There may be something here you can use as a potty chart
