My 2.5 year old has been wearing panties since Aug....she does really good and only has a few accidents, even at night she is not in a pull up. HOWEVER....It is only when we tell her she has to go potty....if she has to go and we dont ask her or just put her on the potty she will have an accident. she has told us before that she has to go, most of the time it is when she has to go number 2 as well, but a majority of the time it is us just putting her on there every 2-3 hours... and there has even been times that i will ask her and she says no...and then 2 minutes later she will pee her pants!! what can i do to get her to tell us when she has to go??? please help!! we are having a baby in dec and i dont want to have her go backwards!! however when i tell her she will have to wear a diaper or pull up she cries and says they are too big!!
