We started potty training with pull ups. I know for some it doesn't work. What we did was put underwear on and then the pull up, so they feel the wet and gross and the clothes don't get wet.
Emma was old enough to understand incentives. Here's what I did (in progression over about 2 weeks):
- 3 M&M if she went on the potty (when I took her or when she asked - I did it every 30 minutes)
- Then, 3 M&Ms if she went potty and her pull-up was dry (I still suggested it)
- Then, 3 M&M if she went potty with HER suggesting it (she didn't get them if I suggested it, but my suggestions were now at about 2 hours)
She still sleeps in a pull-up for naps and overnight because she does still go high or low, meaning she is pumped with a lot of juice overnight. I'm not ready to wake her up to pee before I go to bed because 1) she wouldn't go to sleep for an hour; and 2) she's already disturbed enough with our checking her overnight
