Re: Am I slacking????

I tried everything with my DD who is 32 months old. She just didn't care either. But being PG, I got sick of changing poopy diapers. I actually bribed her with My Little Ponies!! She loves her older sister's and that was what she really wanted. So we told her if she used the potty for a week, her daddy would buy her ponies. It worked!! Now she's almost done with the second week and expecting more ponies. I hope she forgets about getting them for using the potty pretty soon or we'll have way too many!! My sister then tried the same thing with her 35 month old DD except she made a sticker chart to fill up to earn the ponies. It is also working with her. They are a little older than your DD, but if you think she can control the muscles, you could try it, using whatever toy/thing she loves as a bribe.

Is there something else I could try? Is she just not ready yet? Is it okay if she's not ready yet? My dd1 did everything on her own sooner than I expected so this is new to me.
She doesn't seem ready. Some babies are ready early and some aren't ready until they are 3. I wouldn't worry about what other people say/think, but rather what your little one wants to do. If she isn't ready or just simply doesn't want too... she won't no matter how much she is pushed. {Can you tell I have been through this before?} Said dd is now almost 19 years old and I can safely say.. she is potty trained. Her sister{now 15yrs.old} trained herself both day and night at 18 months. The next dd{now 11yrs. old} didn't even seem interested until a month after her 3rd bday. She also trained both day in night within a month. {Proof that waiting until they are ready makes the entire thing super easy}.

DS sorta is curious about the potty, but he hasn't yet gone tinkle. I know that he will go in his own time though... which will make it much easier.

Mama! Just relax! It will happen when she is ready. You can just have the potty ready in the bathroom for the times when she may want to 'try".
I hope that has helped some. My girls are all teens/preteens and potty trained. It was much easier when I let "them" decide they were interested. And for the record.. You are NOT a slacker! You are a very good mom! I know it is hard not to worry especially with having a first child, but it really is not a big deal. We all know that kids learn at different times and potty training is no different.

She is still sooo young to be potty training. I say let her take her time, and train when she is ready.
