So we started potty training our daughter on monday. I know it takes a while to catch on, but I feel like we are making backwards progress the past couple days.
I know she knows when she needs to go because she will “hold herself” or squat. My biggest problem is that I don’t think she is making the correlation with the fact that she is supposed to go in her potty.I get this feeling because when she actually needs to go she runs away from the potty, refuses to get back on, and won’t go until a diaper is on (and one time before diaper was on, she squatted and went on the carpet…fun times lol)
We have “rewarded” her when she does go in her potty (hugs, high fives, YAYs, etc) so idk what else to do… but I AM trying to avoid candy as a reward if possible. Does anyone have any tips on helping her understand to go IN her potty and not her diaper?
I have also tried (today) just putting panties on because I thought maybe if she was actually wetting her pants she would want to go in the potty to avoid it. She had a horrible tantrum when she did wet her pants (it was probably uncomfortable) but still won’t go on the potty and went on the carpet one time after.
