    How do you get your DD to go potty in the big potty? If we're out and didn't bring the potty chair ring, she'll hold it until we get home. I'm glad she can hold it but it can't be good for her. Yesterday she kept holding herself and doing the potty dance (strangers were asking if she had to go potty) but she wouldn't go in the big potty and said she'd wait until we got home.

    Maybe she is scared of falling in? I don't know. What I do with mine is I go in the stall then hold them up on the potty until they are finished, and set them back on the floor.

    She actually went potty in a big potty yestereday. We were at a restaurant and didn't have the potty chair ring and she said she'd go in the big potty and did.
