Paige was doing fine sitting on the potty before I was potty training. Now, she's frightened of it. She'll be in panties and bring me a diaper so she can pee. If I ask her if she has to pee she screams "NO" and runs to her room for a diaper. What did I do wrong?
LOL! Go back to basics again and don't push the issue maybe. It might be a control thing too where she wants to be in control of potty decisions but something just triggered her to develop uncertainty of the potty. I think its just time and patience
Dakota is the same way!! Just a few minutes ago, Dakota didn't have a diaper on and I asked if he needed to go to the bathroom. Well instead of going to his potty, he ran into his room and grabbed a diaper! He refuses to sit on the potty!
I wouldn't force the issue, it may end up taking longer. I would take a break from potty-training or even mentioning potty chair for a bit. People are amazed when I tel them I haven't really started training my son who turned 3 in May yet...but he wasnt ready and may not really even be ready yet for full blown potty-training. From what I hear, if they are truly ready, it will only take a few days to a week to train...not sure if that is true or not, but I have heard it a lot!
Xander started doing the same thing. He was so excited about sitting on the potty and loved when he would go and we would get all excited about it. That was when I was just casually introducing him to it. Once I began trying to full-on train, after a day or two he didn't want anything to do with it. He would cry and say no. I think for him it was a mixture of the potty chair being uncomfortable and the fact that I kept having him sit on it every 30 minutes or so until he went and he was just plain over it. lol.
I took it as a sign that he wasn't really ready. I mean, I know it is work but part of me felt like he wasn't ready to begin with and I was just pushing the issue because we have so much going on with the upcoming move and new baby that I thought if I hurried and got it done it would be one less thing to worry about..which I know isn't right.
So, with that and the fact that he didn't seem to be taking to it, I decided to just lay off it for a while. We'll reassess the situation again in a couple months after we get settled in the new place and go from there. I'm not in a hurry for him to be trained. I know no matter what it's not like he'll be in diapers forever.
