Have plenty of wipes to hand,

Weve just started potty training and so far it's going ok.


We found that making a big fuss when she's used the potty makes a big difference

lots of praise and reward stickers:)
#3
try and make it as fun as possible and make sure the potty is always ready and when they do use it praise and they will think its fun and want to do it again, you will have loads of accidents but its all about learning when to go

hi probably not much help but my daughter didnt like the potty so we got one of those seats that fits on top of the normal toliet seat, i used to just ask her every half an hour if she needed a wee and remind her to tell me. it worked for me but i have been so lucky with her i took her out of nappys at 20 months for bed time and from that day till now(shes 6 by the way) she has never had an accident either in bed or in the day time.EDIT sorry got that wrong i took her out of nappys at 20 months in the day and she was 2 and half for the bedtime.

I don't recommend pull ups,just use normal underwear as they will feel more uncomfortable when wet.

I used to make sure I used to sit them on the potty every few hours,would praise them when they did the deed in it.

My son was tricky to get dry in day,my daughter much easier,used to sit her Annabell doll on potty and she copy when she was 2 half,she was dry within a week or so,think she could been dry quicker but I held off as my eldest took ages and ages,was 2 mths before his 4th b'day he was finally dry in day,saying that,he's autistic.
All children different with it so keep trying,if you find you losing your rag with it,give up for a bit and try again,I had to do this with my eldest as we wouldn't be getting anywhere and I'd give it a rest for a month or so.

How old is your little one Hawick? I'm thinking about starting my little one soon shes 2 next week, she seems ready and has good vocabulary which i think will help. I was thinking of maybe leaving a month or 2 till the weather warms up so she can run around without trousers on. I've just ordered the Gina ford potty training book of amazon to see what that has to say, my son is 9 now i think i've forgotten how it all went!

Best to keep the potty in the main room your always in too,no good upstairs in bathroom yet either.

To make it more fun you can buy flushable sound pottys,they about £30 or more though,not something I spend on when Poundland got them for a quid and least you can just replace it every few mths at that price.

one thing is once you have started dont give up, i also dont like these pull things, your either getting them out of nappies or your not, pull ups are nappies done up another way, if you need to be using pull ups then you or the child isnt ready to potty train

daughter easily potty trained, and was dry through the night soon after, son was a nightmare, hated the ptty, so used to sit on proper toilet with childs loo seat and had a step up

she was 2 last month , but i bought one of the fisher price flushing pottys a few months ago and kept it in the bathroom - i took her to the toilet when i went and she would sit on it and get toilet roll when i did lol. the past 3 weeks she has been telling me what she has done in her nappy and getting a nappy and wipes for me when she needs changed lol so im thinking would be a good thing to see if she can tell me before she does it in the nappy. i just wasnt sure if i was going to try to young and put her back :?

she sounds ready to me :thumbsup: my mum said i should of started with mine a few months ago but i didn't want to start too young and upset her. I think i'm going to take her into mothercare and let her pick a potty on the weekend and i like the idea of getting a doll that wees with a potty :)

I just gave my youngest a potty today. She got a pink one from tesco that converts into a step and toilet cover. She's sat on it and farted cos she was pushing so much!!! lol. Im gonna train her at half term but i just want her to get used it being around.
My eldest is four and i trained her at 2 1/4 over the easter holidays as you need to dedicate a few days solely at home.
Dont confuse them with pull ups. I did use them when i started to night train as they do give a feel of wetness and i wanted her to be aware of going in her sleep.

I was struggling getting the twins potty trained and ended up getting "My wee friend" stickers for there potties (see link below) I picked mine up off ebay quite cheap really (maybe a quid or three each) but found that they were well worth it. The sticker goes form black to a star, cow, dog or whatever the sticker is when they wee in it.

general rules for know if you child is ready, they can pull up their own trouser/pants they know the difference between wet and dry, they can follow instructions, they are showing that they know when they need to go, taken from some of the good advise in gina fords potty training book. always best to stick to pants not pull ups as they are just like nappies! more mess I know but worth it, I also used to have a chart of when she went on the potty, what time and whether she asked or I reminded her, after 2 days I then new how long she could go inbetween needing to potty, good idea if you need to go out! again idea from gina fords book hope it helps:thumbsup: there is also some idea in the book about preparing them for potty training and tips on what to do if it all goes wrong, I swear by this book, i didnt use it for my first and it took me a long time to train her a few months anyway, I used some of the advise for my second and she was done in three days!

shouldnt you be potty trained by now anyway?
#18
I had a potty laying around when my son was little and encouraged him to sit on it every now and again. No pressure, just make be chilled about it. He was fully toilet trained a mont after is 2nd birthday. I did the same for my daughter but she was another story!! She was having none of it and at 3 and a half she was still in nappies. But like I said...no pressure...all kids are different and they WILL pick it up eventually...she's 4 in Feb and thankfully been toilet trained for a couple of months now:-D

I didn't do potty training with any of my three. Took the oldest to the bathroom whenever I went and she started asking to use the toilet. My second went to the toilet when my first did, oldest on toilet, second on a potty. My third picked it up ion the same way as my first. They were all completely out of nappies by three, day and night.
