Help!! day one of potty training dt boys. (Did try them over the summer, but i lost my nerve in the end after about 4 weeks. ) success is about 50% with one being a lot better than the other. Should I put one back in nappies and do them one at a time? They are 2.10 years. Have asked them and one asked for pants and the other nappies, but then changed his mind and asked for pants. I have spent the day wiping up wee!!!!
My parents are looking after them tomorrow for me to work, but then I'm off for 3 days.
And they may not be ready together. I dealt with one at 2.6, the other at 3.6. The slower potty trainer has always been a little behind his brother with his milestones - but usually by 2-6 weeks rather than a year!!
Mine were a good year apart, 2.9 and3.9. DS had no inclination to train at all, DD had shown no interest at all and came home from nursery one night and announced she was going to use the toilet. That was that. I'm not sorry it worked out like that, it meant I could concentrate on one when we were out and about.
Just doing my DD at the moment, it has taken 3 weeks but she's finally for it. DS not interested at all so going to leave him for a while. They are 2.9. I couldn't have coped with two lots of laundry and accidents, DD was bad enough!
Although my twins are grown up now, they were potty-trained together 'by example' - by me! Showed them what to do and where to put it. They cottoned on rapidly and were soon clean and dry overnight and during the day around 2 yrs 9mths.
