She is telling me she needs to go potty

Individual experience. Results will vary.

Thank you for your thorough response! At the end of Day 3 (Wednesday) She finally started getting it in the potty. She did very well and didn’t have any accidents yesterday, although we went to the bathroom and sat on the potty a ton and most of the time she didn’t do anything.

I still am looking for her to give me a verbal clue. She is telling me she needs to go potty by jumping up and running into the bathroom, but she is doing this all the time! Only about a third of the time does she actually go. She just played this game and ran into the bathroom and sat on the potty about 5 times but was kind of playing around when she was on there so I would let her sit a while and then take her off. Then, I put her down for her nap and she had an accident within 5 mins. She never has accidents in bed! So, I think she is getting confused or something.

At night she wakes up and hollers out so I run in and take her potty every time. Three times last night. She peed on the potty once but the other two times she just sat there half way asleep. She didn’t have an accident, but I don’t know when I should take her at night.

I think she needs a little work on 1. telling me (I would love to have a verbal clue) and 2. only telling me when she really needs to go. Do you have any tips?

I think the method is wonderful and I am very impressed that my 18 month old is basically potty trained.

thank you!
