Potty training

My 22 month old has started to leak out of size 6 diapers and with that being the biggest size I can’t go up in size anymore but she really isn’t interested in trying to potty train... she screams every time we try to sit her on the big potty and doesn’t seem to understand the training potty is a potty... I know she’s not two yet and most kids aren’t potty trained until two and a half or three years old but with her leaking out of her diaper (especially at night) I feel like I’m constantly washing clothes/bedding. One pee pee seems to fill her diaper completely... How can I get her interested in using the potty and getting her potty trained? *Edit* We’ve tried pull ups and over night diapers.. they still over flow. Apparently it runs in my husbands family because our nephew had the same problem and they couldn’t get him to potty train either. He just did finally potty train right before he turned four... I don’t want the same thing to happen to me 😬 lol. Our daughter is in the 99th percentile for height and weight, she wears 4t clothing so she’s grown out of the diaper/pull ups. I really want to get her interested in the potty.

    what brand are you using? if the regular baby diaper size already at it’s biggest size then you can try pull up diapers as they’re normally meant for after those regular diapers. you can always try to potty train your kids at any age as long as they’re ready. and girls normally faster than boys too. those ages are for guidelines only. good luck 😉

    We potty trained my son at 22 months.....so it is totally possible if you are ready to do so. We used the “Oh Crap” book/method. He never made it out of a size 4, diaper, so I’m not 100%, sure but I think I’ve seen “overnight” type diapers or pull ups that go past size 6 if you aren’t.

    We bought the toddler toilet for my daughter and started just sitting her on there every hour. It just takes time and patience. My brother was having trouble with his kiddo and let him watch a show on the phone while he sat on the potty. That seemed to do the trick and keep him in the toilet long enough.

    I would definitely do pull ups at night. But I would buy training pants for during the day. They are basically regular panties with extra padding. Children hate being wet so them feeling it motivates them to potty train. Also a lot of children respond well to a doll that pees. Let her potty train her doll and give her doll a sticker when it pees. Then offer her something she likes when she goes potty.

    Try a different brand of diapers maybe? My son had the same issue but luvs diapers fit him bigger than most brands. Also try not giving so many fluids close to bedtime

    I had a huge baby. The Walmart brand now has a 7 size. Also try taking the kid to the bathroom every half hour and give plenty of fluids. She should get used to going to the bathroom fast. Mine took 2 weeks but each kid is different. For the nights it was longer but once they get used to going to the bathroom during the day it’s easier.

    Maybe try the swimming diapers or overnight pull ups!!! Cut the fluid intake off before bedtime also it will help tremendously

    Idk how much fluid they hold but the Good Night pull up are made for bigger kids who still wet the bed they go into kids sizes.

    Training underwear. You can deffiently potty train at that age (my son was 22months when we started) but its almost impossible if there not interested. Use the big potty and take her with you everytime you go and the put her on afterwards. You can try a sticker chart of she likes stickers watch books and movies about potty trainong and find her favorite charecters in a potty video or singing a potty song. Let her run aournd bottomless and just be consistent in taling her every 15min making it a fun trip. It is possible so stick with it mama and make sure everyone who is taking part in watching her is unboard.

    What kind of diapers are you using? I have a 25 lb 14 month old in size 5 Kirkland diapers and she is fine over night. I would try Kirkland or huggies. The other ones just don’t have enough for overnight.

    For those of you asking We use huggies size 6... it’s the only thing that keeps her semi dry. Thank you all for your suggestions! We’re definitely looking into the oh crap potty training and we’re going to try to put her on the potty more.

    Cloth diapers are bigger and make potty training more appealing for the child, as they feel uncomfortable and wet. The natural consequence of peeing her pants, should be enough impetus to just use the toilet. She is not too young. It’s an American luxury to have kids in diapers at 3 years old. Most counties potty train way earlier.
