How to potty train a girl?

Wait until they ar ed ready and interested in it. If pushed the hole house could be their toilet.
But take every hour and sit her down to see if she is interested.

I used to take my daughter to the bathroom and sit on her potty while I went potty so she could get used to the routine of what to do and she learned fairly quick

It took almost a year to potty train my girl and only a week to potty trian her big brother… I wish you all the luck

Give her plenty to drink about every half hour take her potty if she goes pee give her a reward such as a MM or a tootsie roll raisins or something that she would get excited about having as a treat let her ring a bell or start a sticker chart after so many times she will get a New toy or get to go see her favorite movie or a favorite place or activity be creative she will get excited about this if you do

Get her a small training toilet, my daughter loved hers.

Is she showing signs she wants to go ?

Constantly take them every time you go to the bathroom

Put the potty chair where you are strip her naked and sit here on it and say pp then let her up so every 10 or 15 mins take her till she pees or poop then award her

Before I started to potty train my daughter I noticed that she go to the bathroom around the same time every day without fail and to the same spot. So I would set her up on the potty around that time while watching tv and praise her when it happened where eventually she would ask. I started her around the same age.

My child needs to be independent when learning. I bought a potty seat step ladder and a potty watch. The potty watch I think was more of a reminder for me, but she would get excited when it beeped. Every kid is different and you know your child. Just go with whatever works.

My oldest I trained with m&MS, my second with stickers. It doesn’t have to be complicated. Just figure out what they like and reward them when they go in their potty. You want the reward to be something like m&MS and stickers because they are short term. If you give a reward that lasts too long like suckers then they forget what the reward is for.

Try to have her be around friends who are already going potty. Let her set the pace as much as you can so she sees it as something to celebrate when it happens NOT something to feel bad about when it does not. Our mantra was “Anyone can have an accident”. We had a basket of clean panties and a mop. When she had an accident she changed her panties, mopped or otherwise took care of it and went her merry way. Not everyone learns things at the same rate.

Don’t push or force it. She will let you know when she is ready

reward with stickers every time she goes potty

We let her pick out her underwear,did the potty whiz app,and a sticker chart

Set a potty out in the center of the room and lose the diapers! Watch for her reactions, anticipate them, and after a few days of her consistently using it slowly try small trips away from the house - out on a walk - with underwear. She’ll get it!

I took my girl’s to the local candy store and they picked out whatever they wanted. Then we put it in a jar at home and every time they used the potty they got one of their special candies.

Take her potty with you. Let her pick her undies and her potty.

Some people treat/bribe them with candy or their favorite fruits. But for my little girl, who was 3, I used her monster high Lego set. She couldn’t play with it until she went to the potty 3 times in a row (at first) then after a few days to maybe a week later I upped it to 5 potty times in a row. And if she wet herself 3-5 times in a row and not going to the potty, I would put her monster high Lego set up where she couldn’t play with it. In order to get it back, she had to go potty 3-5 times in a row. It took maybe 2-3 weeks to get it down, but by the Thanksgiving came, she was potty trained. Started in mid October with potty training her.

She will be hitting 5 in August, and though potty trained, she does have accidents during bedtime. Which is completely normal for her age. They say children’s bladders don’t fully mature until about 12 years of age. So bed wetting is okay and normal. I have been told to put her back in pull-ups at bedtime, but I refuse in doing so. She will wake up on her own and will sometimes wake me up to help her get undies. Otherwise she is such a big and awesome girl!

And your little girl will be awesome to…if she isn’t already! :+1:

I waited until my daughter was 3 years old cus a colleague told me I should wait for her bladder to mature more…so I did. My daughter got fully potty trained in a week and never had an overnight accident. Letting them pick their underwears gets them excited and happy to potty train.
