Definitely a possibility, if he'll go for it. Emptying potties gets very tedious very quickly. Did you find any purple pants? And how was the wedding at the weekend (it was this weekend, wasn't it)? Hope it went well.
We had to swiftly move from potty training to big loo training after dd1 got her potty stuck on her head (was one of the commode ones). She didn't sit on a potty for a long time after that, but seemed quite happy to contine doing her business on the loo from then on.
its speed rather than convenience.
when they are training they need to go NOW for 80% of the time and may not make it to the loo in time.
i suppose that you are training them to hold it till they get to the loo, it could just be expecting too much at first.
however if you do it cods way, then you take them every half hour/hour to the loo any way so you are not waitng for them to tell you, you are controlling it.
thats the only down side that i can think of.
oh yes good point. I was thinking about taking him every half hour and plonking him on! I can be in my bathroom in about 10 seconds if he needs to go noooow - is that too long to wait? wold you advise a back up potty?!
no, only joking too
try with a pot as well .... do both depending on where you are.
What will you do if out, take a travel pot ( not always easy to find a loo where there isn't a queue ( except the boys..... could go barging in there shouting emergency!!)
I'm definately into getting them used to both. I would take them every 1/2 hour to the toilet, but have a potty handy as well, and of course if they're willing you can encourage them to sit on the potty if and when they have telly time which can be useful to get them used to the idea of going out of a nappy.
Or that can backfire as DS now sometimes wets himself on the sofa - I think he decided that he could "just go" if he's watching Fifi and the Flippin Flowertots, potty or otherwise hehe.
