Always poops in potty but pees on the floor

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My daughter is 20 months old and we have ec since she was 10 weeks old. She has been doing all of her poops in the potty since about 13 months but she does not always pee in the potty. I'd say half of the time or more she will just pee in her pants or on the floor if she is bottomless. Does anybody have any advice or similar experience?

We had that experience. We go back and forth between frequent reminders, absorbant training pants (cotton, so they still get wet, but less mess) and trying to let them have control.

Are you still using a back-up diaper? If so, ditch it. I've never had a kid complete while still wearing diapers. When I saw one of my kids starting to wet, I'd tell the kid to wait, pick them up, help them with clothes, and then sit them on the potty. I'd then reinforce the sign the kid used for the potty.

 

Otherwise, lots of reminders and lots of potty trips built into the routine.
