do you think he is really ready. Are there other signs of being ready? DS was ok on pants but refused to go anywhere near a potty or toilet. We didnt push it as there were no signs of interest in potty training and he said he wanted his nappies but after turning 3 we did resort to bribery.

We gave him a lollipop when he sat on the loo.

If you think hes ready otherwise, I think most people would resort to bribery eventually. Or maybe sticker chart first - DS was not interested in sticker charts at all.

Sorry not more help

September is ages away.
My son was 3 in December and he goes to nursery in pull ups (Lidl's ones), they last the 3 hours.
Don't think nursery can refuse them if they aren't potty trained anyway.
Obviously it's up to you, but I'd keep the nappies on (or try pull ups) and keep on with him using the toilet with loads of praise etc. He will come in his own time.
Good luck, M x
