Dd has been fascinated by the toilet for many months, but it was hard getting her up there. I found a potty chair that looks just like a little toilet, and within a few days, she is using it whenever she is naked.<br><br>
I put panties on her, of course the first time she thought they were like a diaper, so she wet, but the second time she understood their limitations. She likes the idea of them but complains they are uncomfortable. I have other ones on mail order - the ones I got have ruffles on them that are probably tickling her.<br><br>
Sometimes she asks for a diaper so I put one on. For naps, night, and outings, I use the diaper. Otherwise she is naked if we are home. She enjoys the new privilige of being free to roam the house in this condition; it used to be naked only in the kitchen or adjacent bathroom.<br><br>
I'm asking what to do next; I guess I should just follow Dd's lead since that's worked so far, but winter is coming and our house is drafty. I'm wondering when I can put clothes on her and have her think clothes = diaper? I know the answer is probably she'll have to learn the messy way, but if there are any insights, I'd appreciate hearing them.

It really depends on how old she is and if she's ready. When she was 2 1/2, I gave my dd underwear and she peed in them the first day and had one or two accidents the second third and by the 4 th day was trained.<br><br>
My 19-month-old is using the potty when naked but I know if I put clothes on him he will pee in them... he is using the potty but can't pull his clothes on and off yet. I will have to not put clothes on him without a diaper. It is so individual and all you can do is try.
