My dd is 25 months and I have been trying to potty train her for a while. About 3 months ago she did a proper wee in her potty and I really praised her. She hasnt done a thing in her potty since! Although, the other day she did a single tiny drop in her potty and kept saying 'oh no, oh no' even though I praised her. She wears kbickers in the day for a while but still wee's as if she was wearing a nappie and when she does have an accident on the floor she gets upset. She can say 'mummy, wee wee' but thats after she has done it rather than before. She will sit on her potty quite happily but just wont do anything in it. She would rather get off the potty, step to the side and wee on the floor even though it upsets her.

I never shout at her or tell her off for accidents, i just say nevermind and give her a hug and say 'potty next time'.

So am I doing this wrong or is she not ready just yet? Im running out of ideas now.

Have you tried a different potty? It might sound stupid but my DD1 chose a white & yellow potty with ducks on, which she used to go fine in. Then I bought a 2nd potty for her sister and now she will only go in her sisters pink fairy potty!
That or the toilet - she may want to copy mommy so you could try a adaptor seat

If she only knows she's had a wee after she's done it then she's not ready yet.

She's very young. I'd siggest that you give both her and yourself a break - take the pressure off and leave it for a while. When she's ready it won't take three months of "training" to get her dry.

25 months is still very young. When she is ready she will use the potty and wont care what it looks like.

Give it a rest and when the weather starts to get hot have her bare bottom in the garden.

When a child is ready they usually get potty training in a week.

Thats great. Thanks every1. I will leave it until the summer time and when we feel it is right i will take dd out for her to choose a brand new potty. I feel much better now, I was worried as my friends dd is 3 months younger and fully trained. Every child is different - I know

It's much easier to train in the summer, when she's ready she'll be trained in a week!
