HI ladies!

Need some advice.
Miss A has been TT now for about 4 months. She has never really "got it" and has only gone a handful of days where she has had no accidents.

She was doing really well a few weeks ago and we finally felt like we were in control. Until we got a new dog. Since then is gone out the window. Pretty much having accidents every single time and is starting to become scared of going to the toiler.

We have tried, special treats, a sticker chat and always give lots of praise.

It seems to late to put her back in nappies as it has been so long!

Any advice would be wonderful! xx

Do you make her go to the toilet or do you wait for her to tell you? I know with my DD it's very rare that she will initiate going to the toilet, the only time is when it's practically about to run down her legs. She's very good at holding on, and so I just make her go when I think it's been a while. And when I ask, she'll happily go to the toilet and will always do something.

Otherwise, I think I probably would just put her back in nappies. If it's been four months and has consistently been having accidents, I would say she doesn't totally get it. I know kids have regressions, but it sounds like she's never really gotten it. I personally believe that when kids get it, they just get it. Sure, they'll still have accidents, but the dry times should outweigh the wet times.

If she was older I would maybe be a bit concerned and push the issue a bit more, but she's still at an age where a lot of kids aren't toilet trained, so I'd probably just give it a rest for a bit.

Thanks for the reply.

Yes we ask her and take her. Usually she is pretty good and will say yes if she needs to go. So in that regard she gets it. She will also ask to go occasionally .

She just gets too busy playing etc that she forgets to ask to go......... it just seems odd that it's all gone out the window since the new dogs arrival

I feel it would be too late to go back into nappies she like being in undies and does not enjoy being in nappies during the day . Pull ups are great but it's when she wears them that she forgets to go .
