My daughter is 2 years and 2 months old. She was doing really great peeing on the potty for a while, would tell us she needed to go, and even pooped a couple of times. We had a huge move across the country planned so I didn't push anything during that time and just praised her for her success. We moved and have settled in and everything is basically normal. Now she isn't interested. She doesn't want to sit on the potty/toilet and when I get her to, she doesn't do anything. What now?

Welcome Marlene.

While all the moving was going on,you let her wear diapers or pull-ups and she found out that as she does not have to take time out of play to use the potty,and mom will just change her when she is ready,why bother.

To get her back on track,I would go with cloth training pants and plastic panties,this way,she will be more of an incentive.

you can also start setting the kitchen timer for around the times she normally uses the potty and have her run to
