Hey
I trained kaitlyn myself. If a child is old enough to say i'm wet or change me....... They need to be potty trained. For kaitlyn, this is what I did. Got up the first morning, put her a panty on. She'd pee everywhere..... It's a thing you gotta accept. I'd change her panty. Diaper that night. Next morning, panty but this time when she peed I wouldn't change it. I'd tell her "stay wet!". And i'd let her walk around with a wet panty for a while. I mean, not forever but a lil while. It took 4 days and she was trained completely. She never peed in the bed or in her pants again. No more diapers. It's not hard, you just gotta stick to it and do not put her a diaper! And wet panties are horrible so the kid will not like it!

Ok do you have a little kids potty? Like training toilet? Well hope is gonna be 2 soon and she likes to sit on the toilet and pee in her diaper while sitting on the toilet. And she says pee pee. So they are trying to get her trained but shes taking her time. Just keep the toilet around and sit her on it every once in a while. My other neice kristen had the same potty and she learned at about 1 and a half, she was smart and picked up on her own. No training needed. It should take a few days to get them to do it. Shes 2 so shes ready. My friends son is 3 and looks 5 and hes still in diapers! Thats ghetto

Hey
Kaitlyn didn't use the little potty. It was an insult to her. So she learned on the big potty.
