Toilet training issues
Posted 02 February 2010 - 09:51 AM
I'm fairly sure that as soon as we manage to get that first wee/poo in the toilet/potty it will be all systems go but I just can't get him to stay there long enough! Help!

I've heard that this is a good way to make them realise. Some kids, it'll only take a day before they get the idea.
Don't worry though, he's not the only one. Jeremy is perfectly happy to sit on the toilet, but never actually does anything I must admit, I've been quite lazy about encouraging him, and putting him in jocks Really must get onto that!

What about putting a ping pong ball to aim at in the toilet to make it fun?
When we really started doing it, Lachie just got around with nothing on his bottom half so he understood what happened when he just did it. We had a potty in the lounge room so he could just run and be there instantly without fumbling with his shorts. Eventually we progressed to the toilet and wearing clothes.
I also found the closer he was to 3 the better he understood it all.

I used a square of dairy milk (if she sat on toilet and did a wee etc she got the piece).
It worked and she was toilet trained in three days. It also helped to keep her nappy off while at home and stay at home those few days so she didn't feel the security of the nappy.
The books say don't use food rewards but worked for us!

Now her only reward is a hi-5 and she gets to flush and wash her hands as she's now only using the big toilet. It has been about 2 weeks since we started but she still wears a nappy at night.
I think as you said once you get that first one or two he'll probably be fine. Amy was petrified of the big toilet and we brought a comfy potty for her and it made all the difference as she wouldn't even go near those standard potty's.

For about the past month Jack has been in nappies but i have been asking him to go to the toilet.he is different in that he will sit on the toilet.
id put Jack in undies and let him wet.A nappy absorbs the wee and doesnt make it that unconfortable..
Jack spent the whole day today at daycare and never once weeed his pants till daddy picked him up and he did a massive poo in his undies LMAO

that potty time for girls or boys dvd is good That Amy spoke of - it helped Jess alot.
she still has accidents though so im not good on potty training advice.
I bought Ash a pretty book and some stickers the other week so now if she does a wee/poo in the potty she gets to choose a sticker and put it in her book. She also has this Elmo puppet thing (SOOOO annoying she wants you to put it on your hand ALL the time) so the new rule is Elmo doesn't come out unless she's on the toilet LOL. She has done quite a few wees in the past few days and loves her undies but she still won't tell me BEFORE she needs to do one.
same here re the before thing
although Jessy will tell me if there is a poo poo coming I ask does your bottom feel like poo is ready to come out and she gets that but the wees she doesnt tell me before I just put her on when I think she needs to go on

I stayed home for 8 days and by the end of it, she was pretty much trained. It probably took another couple of weeks after that before she was completely accident free. And another month or so and she was night trained (we used the huggies pullups with the wetness liner at night).
I did read that you shouldn't reintroduce nappies while you're training as they can get confused.
Hope that helps in some way... sorry it didn't make much sense!
