I left my daughter naked and she potty trained herself at 18 months

Be consistent. I took mine to try every 30 minutes for the first day or two! I also celebrated with a dance and song when she went to the bathroom! Don’t be harsh if they have an accident it’s new to them! The first few days are the hardest but once she gets the hang of things it will be a breeze!

No pull-ups! Underwear only

I found the best way to start is to take her to the bathroom with you every time you have to go and bring out their potty chair (if your using one) at the same time, tell you what your doing

Take her to the bathroom with you, but I also found that sitting my daughter on her potty while I was drying her hair after her bath of just brushing her hair during the day helped her relax and I found after a while she would just get the hairbrush and her potty and ask to sit on it

We tried the every 20 min going on the potty, worked for a while, but didn’t after a while. We got the sticker chart, lifesaver! We went to the dollar store, spent 20 bucks, wrapped all the presents, put them in a bag. Every time she went pee she got a sticker, after 5 stickers she got a present. Poop was different, she refused to go in the potty…even with the little presents. I took her to Walmart, let her pick her own present, but told her she wouldn’t get it until she pooped in the potty. Literally 2 min after we got home, boom, she did! Fully potty trained after that🤩

My little sister wanted to pee like daddy behind the garage. Since she was outside most of the summer my mom put her in a dress, no underwear put her potty chair “behind” the garage (it was next to it) that summer she pretty much potty trained herself.
I have boys, I waited for them to give me signs they were ready, people gave me crap because my oldest was over 4 but accidents were very minimal and absolutely no night time accidents :woman_shrugging:

Elmos potty time video, did wonders for my kids.
Good luck!

I just took my daughters to the bathroom with me. Then bought a fun toilet, it’s a duck that plays music when they pee. One daughter was potty trained by 2 years old. My other daughter is just now 2 and potty trained for day time. I didn’t force but I did reward with 1 M&M for pee 2 for poo.

She’ll let u know when she’s ready. Let her do it in her own time. Don’t rush it .

2 is pretty young so don’t get frustrated if you try and it doesn’t happen. We tried at 26 months and she wasn’t ready. Tried again at 28 months and she took to it immediately. For us, we did a modified naked method. It’s where they stay butt naked all day for 2-3 days. She didn’t like being naked so she wore panties and a short dress. We built a road block on carpeted areas. Everything she could access was pee proof. Books suggest taking them to the potty every 10-15 Mins but my LO was so frustrated with that. So I let her take the lead. She’d pee on the floor and I’d have her sit on the potty. After about 5 accidents, she caught on. Day 2 was accident free. It’s been 3 months now and still doing great. We let her lead when she was ready for poop in the potty. That just happened recently. She was holding her poop for nap and bed time when she would get a pull up. About 2 weeks ago she decided she wanted to try it in the potty. Biggest tip, celebrate every drop. If she pees on the floor but gets a drop in the potty, celebrate that drop with big dramatic cheers and an m&ms. My kid is food driven so offer her an m&m and she’ll do anything :rofl:

I took away the diapers and underpants only. My oldest daughter had one accident and my other daughter had zero. It’s what SuperNanny said to do on her show

Following this… My daughter is almost 2 and follows me to potty and everything but she’s only pooped a few times in the potty and has yet to pee in it.

We just put my daughter in underwear :briefs: and she didn’t like the feeling of being wet… she was potty trained in 3 days, and she was just over 2 years old.

When my daughter was little we got a little kids potty and put it in the living and I just kept pull-ups on her and sat her on the potty every half hour. When she was actually starting to go on that and kept her pull up dry we got one of those little toilet seats for the regular potty and started sitting on that and made sure she knew what the word potty meant. We would just take her to the bathroom every so often until she got the hang of it and did it on her own. At night same thing. Made sure she went before bed and woke her up twice through the night to go. A couple weeks later she was fully trained and never wet the bed
