Help me get to that first pee!
 
My daughter is 2 years and 2 months. I attempted to train her a few weeks ago by removing the diaper completely and letting her go naked. I'd sit her on he potty every hour or so- which she has no trouble doing, but she wouldn't do anything, just chatter with me for a minute. Then Id let her loose and a minute later she'd pee on the floor. It was so frustrating.

I decided after a week of scrubbing rugs, that she wasn't quite ready. We were both getting really stressed out about it. I'd like to start trying again in about three weeks, but I want to make sure I really prepare her for it. I've been reminding her where pee and poop go, and we take her to the bathroom with us.

Should I do anything else? How do I get that first pee in the potty? I feel like if we can just achieve that, then she would get it. Bribes did nothing for her.

You need to watch her like a hawk and run her to the potty as she starts peeing.

:yeahthat: It makes for a super-exhausting day, but push the fluids and do absolutely NOTHING else but watch her. No computer, no phone, no household chores. Plan to play games or puzzles or books or whatever with her. Pre-make some easy meals that can just come out of the fridge (we did a pasta salad in the evening and PB&J for lunch). I used a naked day (well, half a day, really, lol) to jump ahead with DS's potty training and I was soooo tired at the end of it, but a few weeks later, and I'm calling it "done" and he's in undies full-time. He still doesn't tell me when he needs to go (and I don't expect that for another several months) but he's dry day and night, both in and out of the house, both with me and with other people.
