So, I'm active in my playroom and the working mommy board, but am now starting to potty train my 19 month old daughter, and I'll be honest, I haven't the slightest clue what I'm doing here.

She's ok with sitting on the potty (we have a seat that fits over the regular toilet seat) for her, and I am sure she's ready to start. She knows when she is peeing and she knows when she's pooping. She even finds a place to hide when she poops. We have just started, like 24 hours now, but she's not interested in letting us know she has to pee or poop...and when we get to the bathroom, all she wants to do is sit there for a second and then get off. She's not producing on the toilet, we haven't caught her yet.

Part of me is thinking we'll try the naked method, and I've just seen the links above that point to the 3 day method. But I honestly have no idea where to start. How else do I catch her when she's starting to go? How do I get her to a point where I can positively reinforce the actual act of "using" the potty rather than just sitting on it?

Help. I feel like I'm going to screw this up royally, and it's just a potty, and I've only just begun.

This is about where I'm at, but not with my 19 month old, I have one of those, but I'm working on my older one.
