2.5 year old DD has absolutely no interest in using her potty seat. Picked it out herself, she did. We have tried the Elmo potty, Bjorn potty. The Bjorn potty she was peeing in when she was 18 months old. Now, no interest. She goes to daycare 3 days a week and no luck there either. Her friend who is 3 months younger is loving the potty. DD even talks about her friends using the potty. We've done the stuff we swore we never would. Stickers, candy. So far she's only gotten stickers for sitting on the potty...5...in 1 month. I've done the worst thing too-- say "big girls use the potty". Oh god, never thought I'd go there. We've bought her underwear that she picked out and when she was wearing them she could go 2 hours w/o peeing in them. She has no interest in naked time and wants us to change her diaper when she pees in it. I've considered hiding the diapers and telling her we need to get more at the store just so she can do naked time and perhaps she'll want to use the potty rather than pee on the floor. We have potty books too and she sees daddy and I using the potty. Just thinking of all the things we've tried as I write this. Sorry, not very sequential.
I know chances are she'll just surprise us and go on her own, no prompting from us...when she is ready. I guess I'm just really thrown by this because she wants to do so many things on her own. And she was using the potty at one time. What happened?
So first I would love to hear others tell me this is all normal and either help with tips or what I can do to just relax about it.
Thanks so much.
