A sticker chart. She made it and decorated it herself with DH, so she really liked it. 

Good luck.

I also had a sticker chart for my son but because he had a harder time with pooping, whenever he would poop on the potty he got a special surprise!

We had a sticker chart with DS1... DS2 didn't care about a sticker chart and actually ended up training completely in just a couple of days.

we skipped pull ups, and only used them for nap time as "night night undies". we put him straight into regular undies and told him not to get them yucky or wet. pooping took a little longer, but not much.

as a precursor, he always has been a follower. so he'd follow ,me into the bathroom and i'd tell him to have a seat on his potty and see if he had to pee like mommy does.

he didn't care about a sticker or a treat or anything.... he just didn't like being wet and just understood that was what big kids did. I think it helped that we did a lot of talk about him being a big brother and that his brother would have diapers.

We did stickers. DS wasn't very expressive. He has a speech delay. He wasn't potty trained until 3. He absolutely hated the entire idea so we avoided it for awhile. One day I told him if he'd sit on the potty and pee I'd give him a sticker and he did...pooping was much harder. Something about the poop leaving kids bodies makes them scared/nervous. lol. It took an extra week for getting the pooping on the potty down, without screaming. I did reward him with 1 sticker for pee 2 stickers for poop, every time for a good while. Slowly the stickers dwindled off. He never wore pull-ups and he's 5 and never has had an accident or anything. good luck!

Thank you!. She isnt delayed but just not super aw3some yet. She also prefers gestures to talking even if she can say the words. We are working on this and shes been doing much better. I dont think i can do the underwear without pullups yet. She doesnt really get it yet and we also have no washer and dryer :( and we dont have many sheets either. With how many hours SO works i can only get laundry done once a week when i go check on his parents.  Plus its our family time to spend the day with them. I like the idea of stockers though and everyone seems to be suggesting that. 

also dd is afraid of pooping so its going to be a bit tough. Today she managed to go once though and we were so proud of her. Day 2 of training.

Oh no, wasn't suggesting the same just letting you know what we did. I totally get it. Time is your best friend. Always make it a big huge deal. I still do. I mean I don't dance around the room, but I still let him know "hey, great pee man!" Lmao.

We didn't do any rewards...ds1 was doing good until ds2 came along and he noticed ds2 was going potty in his diaper so it made a set back and is still a struggle.
