Hey Ladies.

I am 24 and have a 2YO with another baby due in January.

My DD will wear her Dora panties, and go 5 hours without doing No1 or No2, but when she needs to go, she will stand and cry her little heart out begging me to put a nappy on She clearly has full control of herself but wont do it in the potty?

Has anyone had similar? My MIL is constantly berating me for not having her trained yet, but when my DD is standing there sobbing for a nappy, what am I supposed to do ?!

Have you tried hiding the diapers? Does she stay dry at night? If so, can you just get rid of the diapers. Maybe try pull ups on her at night and tell her that youhave to save the diapers for the new baby.
I would try having her help you gather up all the diapers and place them into a bag of some kind and let her help you give them to someone who could use them. If she knows they are in the house she will know that she can have one. If they are gone, then she can't. You may have to use some tough love for a time or two and sit her on the potty and tell her that she is a big girl now and that there are no more diapers for her to use.
Hope that helps. I have heard of kids doing this so it is not uncommon. Hang in there she will get it

Give her the diapers back. I went through this with my dd at about 30 months. It was clearly stressing her out, even though she had the capability to go potty. So I gave it up and then 4 1/2 months later tried again. It was so easy then! No tears, no stress, hardly any accidents.

Why the hurry?
