Hello Loreta,welcome to our board.

Does she go into the bathroom with you ?

Let her watch how you go,this does help her get over some of the fear she may have.

does she have a stool with the big potty to help her keep her legs from dangling?

It soulds like she is a very smart little one,so once she gets used to it,she will train pretty fast.

If she is wearing disposable diapers,try switching to heavier cloth training panties for both day and night and tell her,as she is a big girl at night,she can wear these.( if you are a bit worried here,try plastic panties over them untill you are ok.

Please let us know how it works out,

Mac

Yes she does come with me to the bathroom..

I dont not have a stool, thats a great idea i will do that thank you!

I will def be trying the cloth training pants i have been wanting to try them for quite sometime!

I guess with her it will just be trying to help her become more confident about using the potty since its something she is not used to.

thank you so much for you help
