So last night dd announced she didn't want to wear diapers anymore...she was really putting up a fit when I was changing her, she wanted to wear her princess underwear. I was relieved to hear that...I honestly thought we would be wearing them until high school. I have been reading some of the articles on here...and I am going with the do it yourself approach. I told her I wouldn't remind her, and she can do it all herself!

Since last night we have had zero potties in the potty. She has just kept having accidents. So she is done wearing diapers, yet she isn't trying in the toilet. How do I get her to try in the toilet...without the reminders? I have a sticker poster and m&ms for incentives...she just hasn't tried yet.

Right now she is having a "potty party" in our bathroom. I thought I could attempt to contain the pee to one area. She is watching a movie, having juice, and hanging out in there. I am trying to make it fun...I really hope she starts to try.

Should we just keep doing the underwear with vinyl pants on top until she decides that she'll actually go in the toilet?

I am trying to be patient...it just seems like there pee everywhere.

Okay, I will try telling her about keeping the princess undies dry. She is going to be 3 next month...so she should be able to understand that.

We will keep on doing the parties in the bathroom, and hope one of these times it just clicks with her!
Thanks for your help!
