we didn't really potty train our daughter, it was more she did it herself in a way. we helped but we just followed her steps. she shwoed us when she was ready to take the next steps.
but a couple tips i use are:
keep everything positive
let them run around naked(worked very well with my daughter)
when they do go make a HUGE deal out of it. with my daughter we would let her call my mom and tell her that she went on the potty.

For mommas who say their LO is now relapsing and no longer interested in potty training, I found this:

I don't care that I'm late. This is the internet and she did post about her personal life on here. This is a public forum, not private. Just pointing that out to you.

Well since I've been reading the thread, I guess I'll give my 2 cents.

I think when your child is ready, you will know. I tried to do it when I was ready but PTing just doesn't work that way. Once SHE was ready, I just said no more diapers and she never wore another diaper again - night time or otherwise. She never had even one accident until 6 months after she had been potty trained. I think pushing a child who isn't ready is about the worst thing you can do. Studies are all generic, they don't address YOUR child.
