Needing advice on potty training my daughter

Hello my daughter just started potty training about a month ago she’s about two and a half. She’s doing good but I have to pull down her underwear and shorts every time and put them back on for her. Will she learn how to do that in time ? Or any tips for teaching her how to?


Shes still pretty young when getting her dressed try to teach her to dress herself and it will come in time for sure she just has to learn it

Yes she’ll learn eventually. She’s 2.5 years old. Most kids learn by 3/4 on how to dress themselves so and even then they still need some help

She is 2 and half. My 4 year old still has a little problems pulling her pants up.


My little one is still potty training and she is three I usually try to make sure she has loose clothing on as it’s much easier for her to pull them up but most of the time she strips the whole bottom half off to pee and then shouts for help to put it all back on lol x

As long as you keep doing it for her… She won’t do it herself.

She’s old enough to do it herself… They are capable of dressing themselves at 18 months… Let her get dressed on her own the entire day so at potty time she’s doing it Then too…

Do not put her in diapers or pull ups…


It takes time. Having her help you do it will start the process. My son isn’t being potty trained hardcore yet (he’ll sit on the potty but won’t go lol) he’s 2. He’s really pretty good about helping us. Learned to do his arms in his shirt or pull it off the rest of the way if we get his arms out. Steps into his pants really well. Needs a little help pulling down or up bc he generally only grabs the front so he gets caught in the back. Kids love to help so try it out gently and use a lot of positive affirmations

My son is 3.5 and still has a hard time pulling his pants up and down. Make sure her pants and underwear are not too tight and try to avoid Jeans since they’re hard for little ones to get on and off.

It takes time. She’s only 2.5 so she’s still very young. She will learn as she gets older and sees you doing it. Occasionally try to have her do it and help her but don’t do it fully for her. Over time she’ll get the idea and learn to do it on her own

Make sure you put her in things that are not to hard to get up and down. Nothing with buttons that was always my daughters biggest issue. If it’s not an emergency potty try having her do it herself

My son is four and still needs help pulling them back up especially if he poops he gets completely undressed :expressionless: nothing wrong with helping her, she will learn with time. Enjoy her being two and still needing you. They don’t stay little long enough

No. You’ll have to go with her to high school so you can pull her pants back on.

That being said, my daughter had been able to pull hers up and down from the start. :woman_shrugging: we started at 16 months.

My son turned two this month and he is starting to pull up his own shorts but it’s simply because he doesn’t like it when it’s around his ankles or knees. So if I don’t do it quick enough he takes it into his own hands but even then I have to help him pull them up all the way and straighten them out. Try grabbing her hands and guiding them to try and help her learn to do it on her own.

,she’s only 2 &1/2 give her time she’s still a baby why does everyone. Want them to grow up so fast in a year or so your gonna. Wish you. Had your baby back


Around home just let her run around in her underpants, or make sure her shirt is short enough she doesn’t have to lift it up.

Yes she will learn to do that. Just remember to be patient. My almost 5 year old is not fully potty trained and it is nerve wrecking.

All kids are different. My daughter was 20 months doing it all on her own.

She will start in her own just start step by step . Let her start with the underwear and you do the shorts or pants and once she has that down then have her they the shorts there first going to be crocked lol!! But time will fix that

Let her to the bathroom when you go. And praise her for being a big girl.

It’s a coordination thing. Have her help dress and undress herself and she’ll start to figure it out.
