I just let her wear a nappy to nursery now

We (me and nursery staff) have tried everything

she point blank refuses. She hates nursery so I am presuming that has something to do with it.

At home she is completely dry, she takes herself off to the loo whenever seh needs a wee or poo, undresses herself, wipes own bottom (pretty successfully on most occasions) and dresses herself again.

Anyone else had this?

If she hates nursery and is not cooperating with the staff, then I would find a different nursery TBH. She clearly is not getting along with them and not happy there and IMO that is the real problem, not the potty training.

I am moving her in January. I think I'll just let her wear a nappy until then.

My DD of the same age is having the same problem. For her, she hates all public loos as well as the playgroup loo so I think it is a fear of the unfamiliar. She refuses to go just like your DD.

I was using trainer pants, but then with these the playgroup staff can't see that she has wet herself. So I think I will use pull ups for a wee while until she shows that she is OK about going on 'foreign' potties.
