17M OLD POTTY TRAINING GIRL

NICOLE - July 27

MY 17 M OLD SAYS SHE IS WET AND DIRTY AND TAKES OFF DIAPERS AND REFUSES TO WEAR THEM. I HAVE TRIED A POTTY CHAIR, BUT SHE SITS ON IT WITH DIAPERS ON AND GOES AND THEN REMOVES DIAPERS. SHE UNDERSTANDS WHAT THE POTTY IS FOR AND WHEN TO USE IT. ANT SUGGESTIONS, WHAT TO DO. I CAN NOT HAVE HER TAKING OFF HER DIAPER

17 months is still kind of young but it does sound like she is getting ready to train. Maybe offer her a reward for attempting to go on the potty. Maybe stickers or a special trip to the park or something. I bribed my daughter with candy, she wouldnt do poo poo on the potty and now she gets a piece of candy when she goes and she does almost every day now. Of course I dont recommend candy, its not really good for them or their teeth and they say not to use food as a reward. Oh well, I started it so I kind of have to continue with it.

I don't think 17 months is too young. I would definately say to go for it, maybe even just try the full b__wn switch to panties, and take her to the potty every 30 or so minutes. Or I guess gerber makes training ones that are just like underwear but actually have the waterproof liner sewn on them. I also would try some good praise when she goes or no reaction when she doesn't. I've used small chocolate peices when I was a nanny (parents did that.) My daughter is almost 14 months and I started infant potty training at 6 months. We have a few accidents throughout the day but honestly they're my fault. I'm 28 weeks pregnant and getting her to the potty every 30 minutes is a little tiring. She hates going in her pull up tho, so we don't go thru many a day at all. Maybe even try switching to pull ups/easy ups when she goes and let her know shes a big girl. Good luck I hope you figure out what step to take!
