NEVER lose your patience - no matter how long it's taking her. The old saying "They'll do it in their own time" is soooooooooo right - it sounds as though she's beginning to realise things but it can take a while for bladder control. I find the best time to potty train is in the summer months so they can run around with no pants on and not get too cold. Best of luck x

Try and act like using the potty is fun and tell her its what big girls use.

I'm having problems with my 3 year old, she is potty pee trained, never ever wears a nappy now but she refuses to poo in the potty or toilet, she'll only poo if we put a nappy on her to do it in, Ive tried saying there isnt any nappies but she'll hold it in until shes blue in the face and then we cave in!

I haven't been through this yet. My 2 1/2 year old just isn't ready, even though she's been using the potty for the last 6 months for a wee, she managed a poo yesterday for the first time

I think your right doing it whilst you're off for the week. My friend has recently trained her little boy and said it was a very hard week of constant watching and asking but they got there

gosh nearly two years old is much earlier than my kids.

were you potty trained early, if so I would persevere, if you were trained late, I wouldn't bother trying for more than a few days, she may not be ready. Don't let it dominate all your week off.

I have to agree with all of the above.

Jnr might not be ready just yet as she is still quite young. Let her sit on the potty every hour for a wee (get it) while. Then take her off. It is much easier doing it in the summer though. As stated can run about outside with no bottoms on and you can sit a potty at the back door so if she feel the need then she knows where it is.

Good luck

PS - get some extra cleaning products in , you will probably need them

my daughter was potty trained before 2, just left her in pants and potty in site, fair few accidents before she got the jist of it, but once she did she was fine, i dont believe in mucking about between nappies, pull ups and pants, think if you going to do it then go for it and put up with the accidents,i think jotting between them all just confuses, now my son different kettle of fish, he was a nightmare and showed no interest whatsoever so left him far later than daughter, he wasnt dry till he was gone 2 and a half, i think you know when there ready and if there not dont push it, there really is no specific date to get it done by, good luck :thumbsup:

Is she saying she wants to do a poo at Pauls house?
#8
my wee fella is three in may and he isnt even asking yet to go to toilet, have had pants on him and have his special big boys toilet seat but he is still not ready yet.
my point is dont get too wrapped up in "its time to toliet train" the best time is when they are ready not when you are :thumbsup:

I agree totally (but before they start school would be good!!) :thumbsup:
#10
yeah i was potty trained early, but the main reason for me wanting my daughter off the nappies is that she is getting to the stage that she is starting to refuse to put on a nappy which is good for her bum but not for my carpets lol
#11
My youngest was really easy to train, we bought her a pink potty and that was it, only had a couple of misses. She then decided a couple of days later that she did not want a nappy for bed either and took it off, has only wet the bed once too. Its all about your little one being ready, if she is then it should be fairly easy otherwise is will be really hard work, my five year old son was awful because he really didnt want to bother. Good luck:)

All babies, kids, children are different, and its easier for them and you to go along at their pace.

We are having similar with our lad who is just gone 3, he just will not sit on a potty, the toilet when he "wants" to but does nothing, the trouble is he's due to start nursery 5 afternoons a week after easter but they wont take him till he's dry, so we are having to use the nursery/daycare in the next village which we will have to pay for.

Any advice in this thread is welcome!

Yeap I'm with Sassie here too.

I expected a few accidents and had cleaning stuff at hand if necessary. We actually started off with 2 good days with my daughter - and then on day 3 it was terrible accidents all day long. You really have to keep your cool - and say Oh dear - better luck next time. It turned out on day 3 my daughter was actually a bit poorly - no wonder she couldn't concentrate. But on day 4 she woke up right as rain and has never had an accident since!

My neice also had trouble going No.2's. She insisted on using a nappy for a few years.

Good luck next week!

Does she watch you go to the toilet as well? Maybe she wants to be a bit girl.

My daughter always got a round of applause when she wee'd in the potty or toilet. Sometimes a sing and a dance too - lol. Well, it's a special time isn't it! LOL.
#16
it sounds like it more than luck i need, i always wondered what people meant by the terriable 2s, but ellie is showing me lol . between the tantrums and the potty training i should at least lose a stone in weight lol

[QUOTE=Butterflies]Does she watch you go to the toilet as well? Maybe she wants to be a bit girl.

yeah we cant go to the toilet without her wanting to come and she needs to give you the toilet roll too, lol. while we are using the toilet she will still on her potty but just doesnt do anything ever

I found with both of mine that they will do it when they are ready, boys do seem to be later as they are not bothered about wearing a nappy. I have a brilliant book http://www.amazon.co.uk/New-Toddler-Taming-Parents-Guide/dp/0091875285 which i used for help. I now use the older version as mine are a bit bigger now. Hope this helps.

I'm having a nightmare with my little girl at the moment and she was 3 in feb!! My son was potty trained including night time by the time he was 2 but my daughter wants none of it!. To be fair, she does very well with doing a wee in her potty/on the toilet (used a sticker chart to help) but stuggles with.....the other! And because of this I have to put her in pull-ups. There is a boy in my son's class at school (reception) who still wears nappy's to bed :shock:
Wot I'm getting at really is as Sassie and others have said - all children are diferent, u'll know when she's ready :thumbsup:

I seem to recall my wee lassie being really easy to potty train and both my boys being a nightmare.!!!

That reminds me of a friend who didnt have a husband to teach her son boy stuff like standing at the toilet so she bought plastic balls and stuck them in the toilet to teach him aim!! :-D Have to be honest it worked too.

Not needed to do that myself for the little guy, but have heard about it being done to help little boys who struggle

I have come across a few children of this age (reception age) not being dry at night but the thing is it is not discussed as most are aware that their child should be out of nappies. If the child is a very deep sleeper is it best to wake throughout the night and potentially make them very grumpy the next day or leave them until their ready. As a lot of people have said each child is different and will progress at different stages i think the most important thing is not to push them but to work with them and ensure they are happy. I am quite sensitive to "what is normal/expected" at the moment as my son is being assessed by special needs at school and i have found that the pressure they get at school from the children is enough to knock them 2 steps back each day without me then adding on pressure at home :)
