You can continue to use diapers till your daughter is 2-years-old. However, when you will want to stop using diapers, ask yourself these questions - Is she using diaper only while sleeping? Do u think she can control bladder while sleeping? It's time you take baby steps and begin with just during afternoons without a diaper. If she wakes up dry give her a reward, a smiley, a hug and loads of praises. But, if she doesn't please don't scold her just politely help her change and tell her she should wake you up if she has an urge to use washroom next time. Once she is comfortable with daytime, begin with night time as well and make her pee at her usual time at night as well. Accidents are inevitable since she has been used to peeing in diapers but that shouldn't make you again use diapers. You need to make use of 3 Ps for better results namely patience, praise and perseverance. Hope this helps!
