Potty training secrets?

  • I'm planning on potty training my 2.5 year old daughter over spring break next month, and I need help! What has worked for you?

    A little info: She is very good at going on the potty, not afraid or anything, when we put her on it. She doesn't use a baby potty, only the regular toilet. She never has accidents as long as she is naked, so she is able to control both her bladder and bowel movements and able to tell us when she has to go. But put some panties on her, and all bets are off. Something about it signals to her that she is "allowed" to go, even though I've told her not to. So I need to figure out how to solve that problem.

    I'd like to be done with daytime diapers SOON, so thanks in advance!
