She is 2.2 and has just started nursery and noted that the big girls there use the toilet. She has done 2 wees on the potty one day in the summer - it was hot and she didn't have nappy etc on and we put the potty out and the next thing she has done a wee in it But she wasn't really interested and I was about to have a baby so we left it.
So what now? I'm not sure that she's ready (she doesn't seem particularly aware - "poo come out" in the bath quite regularly and also she wees around the place after her bath. But she's adamant that she won't have a nappy on. At the mo she is going around in her t-shirt and I keep asking her if she wants a wee or a poo.
And we are supposed to go up to my mums later and cavort on her immaculate plush carpets...
I know it's been done a million times - but please come and tell mr what to do!
I have boys so I guess it might be slightly different but I use the phrase, "Remember to feel the wees in your willy so that you can go on the potty." It seems to have worked. It's taken a while mind you and if you can convince her to wear pull ups when you need her to then I think you're on the way to getting sorted. Accidents will happen mind and it's difficult to keep calm but trying to see the funny side often helps.
I used a sticker reward tech as well so that he was excited when he'd managed to get it on the pot because he'd get a sticker.
