Help!!

Hi mums and dads

I've recently started potty training on the weekend and I'm at a complete lost as to if I'm doing it correctly. At the moment it's not a nice experience for me or little one.
Little girl is 2.5 yrs old and although happy to wear pants and sit on potty/toilet seat she hasn't actually done the deed in either.
A lot of accidents!!
She doesn't know when to tell me she needs a wee, it's when she screams it's trickling down her leg ,by that time it's too late to get her to the potty or toilet.
I'm wondering if I should use pull up pants to start until she learns the difference between wet and dry then transition to pants fully.
No poo either she eventually did it in a nappy .
Any help or advice would be much appreciated

I would say she's not ready. You do need to prompt them all the time in the beginning asking do you need a wee etc.

Pull ups are just nappies

The Oh crap method suggests completely naked at first and when they start weeing just pick them up and put them on the potty (in the same room as playing) and say we wee on the potty.

If you are both stressed by it and she is screaming I would have a break. It is a bit stressful but your DD should not be so upset that she is screaming.

I would try pants off and see if that makes any difference, I’ve been potty training my
2.5 year old ds for almost 2 weeks now and at the start I put him in pants but it seemed to just feel too much like a nappy so i let him run about outside for a cpl of days in just a tshirt and he caught on really quickly and is now back to being clothed, and knows the feeling of needing a wee!

If she doesn't know when she needs to go it's too early, I would take a break and try again in a couple of weeks. No harm in trying pull ups in the mean time though.
