I'm in the same boat as you are. Cheyenne will be 2 in August as well. She will sit on the potty, but refuses to go on it. I'm not pushing it right now; but this summer we are going to really work on it. Good luck to you!
some of the tips i've heard for potty training that you may want to try:
let them see you going to the washroom, so they associate the potty with peeing or pooing. i always leave the door to the washroom open when i am home alone with my daughter because I have to watch what she is doing, so i put her in the living room with the gate up and leave the washroom open. she has a sign for "poop" and she will come to the gate and make that sign and says "mama poop" when i am in the washroom (whether I am or not, she makes the association) haha, sorry TMI but oh well.
seeing other kids on the potty also helps, if you can't have her around other kids who are potty training then you might be able to get a video or a book or both to show her so she can see others doing it.
they say you can take some of the poo from her diaper and put it in the potty so she can see that it is supposed to go in there (put some toilet tissue in the bottom of the potty to keep it from getting too dirty, then you can just dump it in the toilet later.)
make sure you talk about it a lot so she has words for her actions and feelings. like, when she starts to go in her diaper start saying, "you need to go poo? do you want to poo in the potty?" repeating these kinds of phrases gives her a way of talking about it and makes it more normal. i hear that potty songs and dances are also very encouraging for toddlers. it makes the action less strange and scary for them.
that's all i can think of right now. i haven't really started training eadie in earnest yet either. she is in daycare and they start them on the potty when they go to the preschool room. she will be potty trained right before she turns 2 in august. i know that if she is around all the other kids who are trained or in training she will pick it up very quickly so im not that worried about it. we do have the potty out and she does sit on it in the mornings though. right now she is mostly just curious about it.
oh yeah, and they tell you to let them sit on it with clothes on first if they are nervous about sitting on it with no pants. maybe she can use it for sitting on in the livingroom for a bit. eadie has been using hers as a step stool to brush her teeth and wash her hands in the bathroom for the past 6 months or so. good luck!
I am now a grandmother and I have three kids, only two were able to be potty trained, the other one is severely disabled. Anyway, I let my kids, a boy and a girl, sit on their potty chair to watch tv. I then moved the potty chair into the bathroom and EVERY time I went potty I took them with me. I would have them sit on their toilet while I went and would tell them to listen. When I was done I asked them if they could do that too. Both my daughter and son were 2 1/2 when I potty trained them and it only took me 2 weeks to get them fully potty trained. The most important thing to remember is DO NOT push them! They are easier to potty train with less stress on everyone, if you wait until THEY are ready and not just because they are almost 2 or because You are ready.
Good Luck.... By the way, my grandson was 3 before he was fully potty trained. Some kids take a little longer than others. Let it be the child's choice and you will not regret it, it will be a lot more enjoyable for you both.
