My daughter just turned two. At about 22 months I had started potty training her. She caught on quickly, actually the first day we tried she went twice. I had bought a potty seat for her which has music and she loves. So every time I would go to the bathroom she wanted to sit in her potty chair too.
I was so happy because I thought the fact that she went twice the first time we tried this, this whole potty thing was going to be effortless. I started calling my family members and of course getting advice from them. My sister in law said to me "you should buy the potty seat that adapts to the toilet because if you train her in the potty then you will have another ordeal trying to get her to train in the big one so just skip that step all together".. Of course I listened to her and purchased the potty seat that adapts to the bigger one. Well, that didn't go so well, my daughter got scared, and the whole potty thing went out the window.. I have her in pull ups ever since and she will sit on her potty for a few seconds, but she has never gone ever since.. Now she will tell me when she is poopy "after the fact" because she hates feeling dirty.
Any suggestions, on how to start this all over again?
