Re: Need some help with my 3yr old PLer

My dd just turned 3 last week and I thought she would never pt. It was the same for us - going naked she would do well, but the minute I put trainers on her, it was like she reverted back to being a baby. She started preschool at the beginning of the month and I wanted her pt/l'd for that, although they did not require it for 3 year olds. So, about a week before school started, I told her she was going to wear big girl panties from now on. It took about two days to have NO accidents, but she did it. And, we've done the same thing for overnights for about a week with no accidents.

I don't know if it will work, but to me, the trainers were the same thing as diapers for her. So, we made the big deal about pulling out the new princess panties and now she's pt'd.

Good luck.

ETA: Oh yeah, we did only dresses while learning. That way she didn't have to deal with shorts trying to get yanked down, just panties.
Are you ttc? Don't forget your folic acid. Ask me why.
