Ok my dd is 2.4yo, did try potty training her a few weeks ago,and she did really well but then we moved house and decided to hold back till we were settled in.
She is a very clever child, and very good at talking and understanding but i just cannot get her to understand this potty training lark, she will not tell me when she needs a wee at all, i have been sitting her on the potty in intervals but she waits till she is off before she does a wee grrr!then tells me she has done one!
I have tried the...if you do a wee you can have a sticker/sweeties thing and isn't making any difference.
Sooooo...Where do i go from here? i think the moving house and going back into nappies has confused her, and is totally my fault but i really want her to "get" the training thing.
Another thing is i am 25 weeks pg with no 2, so really want to try and get her settled into wearing knickers etc before it gets too close to the new baby coming.
Any help or advice would be very much appreciated.
put pull ups on her, leave potty around the main area she plays and buy the story book about potty training from Woolworths. I read it a few times to my ds and he managed to work it out for himself. Naturally there are going to be a few accidents when she gets started. Good Luck
in that care i would get rid of the nappies/pull ups and just do it!
take her to buy some pretty pants, have a couple of potties and just sit her on it every 20 mins.
if you get even the TINIEST bit of wee in there then praise her to high heaven and give her a little treat (even just a chocolate button or something)
Hi Pucca, I am having the same problem - sort of. I did potty training Boot Camp at Easter and we started off really well but have still only had one dry day and she won't tell me when she needs to go I just plant her on potty/loo and hope for the best. Usually only get a 1 or 2 accidents if I get my timing right but it's a nightmare - was hoping that it might have sunk in by now and really can't entertain the idea of giving up after 6 weeks! Just bought a M&S potty book includes a chart with stickers (£4!) in desperation - so any help would be much appreciated (cod?)
My Dd decided one day she wanted to wear pants, refusing to wear nappies, but wouldnt tell me when she had to pee and she NEVER did it when I sat her on the potty. I left a potty in the living room and one day she did it herself. I was so excited I nearly cried. However I'm now into the dirty pants cycle, which is going on and on and ...... Trying encouragement, bribery, anything, no luck yet.
