welp...my son never enjoyed pull-ups...he just used them as diapers.
You have to make sure that your child is ready to be potty trained. Is she giving you cues that she wants to use the potty? If not, then she is not ready. Don't force her to go, it will only hinder the progress.
Besides, a three year old has stronger bladder control than a two yr old.
My son was a few months shy of his 3rd birthday before he finally became fully potty trained.
As soon as they start to tell you that they are ready, it will usually be much easier. My son went from diapers to underwear virtually overnight...because he told me when he was ready.
for the first six months (he is almost 4 now), he had had only had a handful of accidents. Great bladder control at night (no nighttime accidents at all)....and absolutely no accidents in the past 6 months...so just gotta make sure they are ready, is all.
But, you can go ahead do as you will. Every child is different. since your carpeting is brown, you really do not need to worry about stains. I find that club soda is an excellent stain remover and scent decreaser...and its CHEAP!! Fits my budget well...lol
Good luck to you:)
Been there, done that
