I have a daughter who is nearly 2 and 1/2 and we are just starting the toilet training process. To date she has peed in the potty just once. She will tell me after the fact for both urine and bowel and for a while had to have her bowel-soiled diaper removed right away. This has since gone away and she no longer seems to care. She will willingly sit on the potty but nothing happens, and this morning had a full pee just 10 minutes after sitting on the potty for 15 minutes. I have some plastic covered training pants which she flooded during dinner the other night and this, to our amazement, didn't faze her in the least. My husband thinks I have waited too long to start the process but I was waiting for signs that she was interested in the process.
I need some encouragement and suggestions as to how to proceed. Is she just not ready ? Today we were one with the potty, she sat there every 30 minutes; once, her choice, she sat for 30 minutes but nothing happened. By that time she had been dry for about 3 hours and I thought for sure she would pee. Once again, about 15 minutes after she got up she said "I wee wee'd.
Any thoughts and help would be greatly appreciated. I have no idea what I am doing !
THANK YOU !
