potty training help!

my 2 year old daughter (27months) has shown all of the signs that she is ready to potty train. so i got her started with the potty seat and some training underpants and i’ll put her on the potty throughout the day. since i started, about 4 or 5 times she has said “i have to go potty” and dropped her pants and gone poop and pee in the toilet. success! but every other time she does either in her pants, or on the floor next to the toilet. a few minutes ago i had her on the potty reading books for about 5 minutes and she didnt do anything, so she got down, and then she said “i go potty” and she peed on the floor next to the toilet. any advice to encourage her to actually use the toilet? every time …
i am also rewarding her throughout the day for having dry underpants because i read in a book that i should reward her for clean dry pants, and then double reward her for using the potty.
thanks for your help!!

It sounds like she’s really on the right track so far, and it does take some time. Both of my girls responded really well to me letting them take control. I told them to just go ahead and tell me when they had to go potty (because if I asked them they inevitably said no, or didn’t want to try). Then, if they went potty on the toilet I gave them a gummy bear. Also, with both of them I had to start them out naked. I just let them run around all day in a t-shirt or a dress, no pants, shorts, or underpants. I also made sure I had a little portable potty with us wherever we were, outside, upstairs, downstairs. Once they felt pee pee going down their legs, it didn’t take long for them to want to get on the toilet and get their gummy bear. Once they seemed to have the hang of that, we went out to get underpants to wear.
Good luck, it sounds like you’re doing great so far!!
