    try having your little one go with a bare bottom....accidents become learning experiences & parents and LO can see exactly what's happening

    I swear by the 3 day potty training method. Never use pull ups go straight to real undies!

     yeah i agree my son was doing so great than we had a friend come over to babysit and wasnt comfy with potty training I guess? we got back and the next morning saw he was in a diaper. I was totally diappointed. He's doing good by cant go all day now it gets so frustrating sometimes..

    don't limit fluids, they need to learn what a full bladder feels like

    Brush off accidents; think of them as learning experiences. tell the child "I know you'll get to the potty next time." They can help you clean it up.

    Or you can do bare bum. It's sticking with a potty, timing method every single day for three days. It's not getting them completely trained in three days, but having them understand what needs to happen.
