Hello is your baby called Butterscotch?lovely name if it is,how old is she?just a warning we shall all want to see loads of photos!!so you will have to get the hang of posting them!usually you have to down size them a bit.Anyway back to potty training,sometimes Havs can be a bit slow with the house training,I think it is a question of being vigilant and getting to know her signals of when she wants to pee,and then placing her on the pad,then plenty of praise,but try not to scold her when she has an accident,just ignore it in the early days, as obviously you don't want to frighten her,and then she will hide away from you when she wants a pee,basically it is common sense and patience.So good luck and enjoy your baby
