DD is 2 and we've been using the naked method with sticker rewards, with great success, but only when naked. She rarely has accidents, pee or poo, when naked, like almost never. She goes by herself on her little plastic potty. Sometimes when we're out at a restaurant she'll ask to go potty and I'll take her to the bathroom and she sometimes goes pee. So far she hasn't had the patience to go poo outside the house, but I'm not too worried about that. When I put underwear on her, she seems to regress. Not just when she has underwear on, but after we've taken them off, too! We cloth diapered her until about 3 months ago, if that helps. I think the undies just feel like diapers! Sometimes she goes potty with the undies (I usually have to remind her to pull them down) but they seem to be complicating matters. We've been stuck in this holding pattern for almost 3 months!
Sorry for the novel. I know she's still so young, but I feel like we're on the brink of being fully potty trained, we've just hit this roadblock. I should say that the reason we started when we did is that she got really excited about it for some reason. We're kind of just following her lead in this whole thing.
I am in the same situation with my 2 year old daughter, I came over here looking for someone else who's been through this too. She does fabulous naked, goes to the potty all by herself, pee and poo. The minute you put her in panties, or a pull-up, she goes in them. She'll even say, I have to go potty; you get to the bathroom only to find that she's already gone. She'll also come say, I pee in my pull-up, or I pee in my panties immediately after she's done it. I just don't know what to do with her, obviously she can't run around naked everywhere, so I don't know how to make this switch with her.
I am having the exact same issue with DS who is 2. He does great when he is naked from the waist down, but the second he has underwear/pants/pull-up on, he pees in them.
I don't mind him being naked in the house but when we have to leave the house, I have to put a diaper on him
