What a timely thread! Where are here right now.

We had some success before Aidan turned 2, he went 2 weeks doing all poos on the potty. Then we had a crappy time as a family at the start of the year and TT went out the window.

He went up at room at daycare and Monday was first day in undies there.

Monday - no wees on toilet, but no accidents either. He held on and did his wee on his nappy at naptime and hometime
Tuesday - they were sitting as a little group playing with a doll putting a nappy on it. he says to his teacher "I need to wee" they race off and missed by a few seconds
Wednesday (today) - said "I need to wee" and got it on the toilet biggrin.gif

He is negative about it at home though, very no no no. I have him in undies, but he protests when I say to go to the toilet. I have bought some rewards today, so hoping this will coax him!!

Anyone else have success at daycare first??

Persistance Persistance at home?? I don't want to be to full on though, tips?

Well DS will be 3 in about two weeks and he has zero interest. Please tell me I'm not the only one!

I ask if he wants to pee pee on the toilet, he says no and that's that. I've tried to put him on it a few times but he starts wriggling, so I haven't been pushing too hard since. But I might bite the bullet and buy a potty for downstairs come summer time and see how we go.

Channy - I'm kind of hoping daycare will be able to get the ball rolling for me biggrin.gif Apparently he sat on it last week and did a few trickles which was a start!

With us, my son drove it all. My husband was away on a training (cycling) holiday for a week when K-man - aged 2y 2m - declared he wanted to wee and poo on the toilet. I wasn't that keen on doing the toilet training single handedly, but I went with the flow and it happened quickly.

The first week was hit and miss with accidents all over the place. But by the end of the first week, he had it down pat. I was amazed and quite pleased not to have to deal with nappies anymore (except for nap time and night time). Now after a year (at age 3), he doesn't need a nappy for nap time, but still night time.

Fast forward a year and we are having some regression, deliberately weeing in his undies a couple of times a day but not every day. We have had a lot of change recently (living in the US for a month, his dad is travelling a lot with work, etc) so I think it is way of controlling/rebelling. This week I have just started rewarding him for being dry the whole day. We are on day 2 of the reward system and it seems to be working. biggrin.gif

Another who thanks you for the timely thread!

Upon reading the replies though, I guess I might be dreaming about trying to train T soon (he's not 2 until December)?

Also, rewards. Smarties worked best for us. 1 for a wee and 2 for a poo.


Just saw this. What a great idea! I usually give him smarties willy nilly (pardon the pun tongue.gif), but this is a much better idea than gold stars! laugh.gif

First day at home (well home and visit to Grandma's house) in undies

Early morning - wee/poo accident but said straight away "Mummy I have wet pants"
Then 3 wees in a row in loo!
Then poo accident that ended in a bath cleanup....ooops...but told me straight away 'Mummy I did a poo"
Then small poo on the loo!
(and yes, the kid does poo alot!)

Yay! I know it's early days, but I am so glad (for my sanity!) we have had some success today.

Channy that's a great step forward, least he is aware and tells you it's happpened. He will soon realise it's not a nice feeling having poo in his undies and hopefully will be on the toilet f/t soon! Ethan poos alot in a day too, however he is an eating machine so it can't all stay in there. laugh.gif

This is an interesting read.

Liam is 2.5 and is showing no interest at all. I ask him before his bath if he wants to sit on the potty or toilet and he says 'No, Ba' which means he plans to do it in the bath rolleyes.gif

I am hoping that once it starts to warm up I will let him wear undies for outside play and maybe once he does a wee in his undies it will understand more that he needs to go to the toilet.

I want to get him at least half toilet trained by Christmas because I found out they dont let kids go in the pools on the cruise if they are not toilet trained.

Claire that's a bit rough they won't let them in the water - I wonder why swim nappies wouldn't suffice? unsure.gif

Aidan is a food machine too! Will do 3, sometimes 4 poos a do and some a hugeeeeeee. He doesn't have a scrap of weight on him, so it is all burnt up or ends up in his nappy!

How's TT going everyone?

Aidan is going well at daycare - will go the day doing 3-4wees and no accidents. Bit more hit and miss at home. If we are home for the day and have no visitors he usually pretty good, but gets distracted and too excitable when we have guests over. I have him in pullups for shops/outtings. He did do a wee when I took him to the parents room yesterday. Saw the little loo, got excited and pulled his pants off.

Did anyone else have more success at daycare first?

Update - he went Friday in undies all day and 1 accident. Yesterday = shocker, complete write-off (tired/grumpy/not into it). Today 2 accidents. But big news was he came running to the loo at 5:30pm saying "I need to wee" I got him up and he did a big wee on the loo. Very proud moment and I think we are getting somewhere. It's a tough process, lots of patience required...but fingers crossed we are making headway!

He's been in undies fulltime since Thursday lunch, nappy only at night. Decided not to do pullups or anything for outtings, but go hardcore and deal with any accidents.


How's everyone else doing?
