We have been tryining on and off for 1.5 years to potty train our daughter. She flat out refuses. She says it 'diapers' for her and heads the other direction.
We've tried the laid back approach (apparently), the commando approach, the potty parties, the peer pressure. It does not impact her desire to use the potty or toilet. She adores her father so he evern took over for a while, no go. We have every gadget or gizmo on the market. To her, they are all toys.
She does not have a bladder issue because she will hold in her pee if she is bare-bottomed or in panties. I hated doing this for fear of UTI's but it one more piece of advive from a professional. Needless to say it did not work either. After 5 hours I caved in for fear of causing an infection.
Now that she is older (than most kids), I ask her why she does not use the potty or toilet. She just plainly says she doesn't like them and want her 'dippies'.
Does she want to stay a baby? Maybe I baby her too much, she is an only child (at least for now, one on the way).
Where do I go from here?
