2 yo pees in underwear

Any tips to help my 2 yo not pee in her underwear? We started potty training last summer, and just let her run around nakey tush. As long as she is nakey tush she does great, no accidents. But when she wears underwear she will pee in them a couple times a day. I've tried telling her "Its time to sit on the potty" and that just gives her one more thing to fight with me about.

Its winter and its cold and I would like for her to wear underwear (even though the cold doesn't seem to bother her much). She seems to like her undies, she just doesn't care whether she pees in them.

Have you tried commando? Sometimes for kids the underwear feels like a diaper.
Sometimes I have similar problems with my two year old, I think he just doesn't mind the feeling of being wet, plus if he gets really engrossed in playing then he tries to hold it as long as possible. We've watched the Daniel Tiger episode about going potty that has a little song to sing. That helps a little.
We just sing the chorus.

Re: 2 yo pees in underwear

Asking "do you need to use the potty?", "it's time to use the potty" always is met with resistance by our son. He's been potty trained for a few months now and still says "no" if we ask him, it has to be on his terms. We did undies and no pants at the house for a month, after a weekend of naked bottom training at the house. It was easier for me to see if hos undies were wet, and he was more aware that way too. Instead of asking/telling him when to go, we would do routine checks/reminders to see if undies were dry and congratulate if so, then remind him to "don't forget to let us know when you need to use the potty". Good luck!

My son went through a phase where he would pee in his undies, but was fine if he wore pants without undies. That was when he first trained. You might try that.
