At 2.9 my dgs is now fully trained in the daytime[including naps].What did the trick was acknowledging his need for privacy and having several potties in places where he could reach one easily,also making sure it was easy for him to pull pants trousers down.He now just calls for a wipe post poo or for help to empty a potty.
Just in time for preschool in September.

this will make people having trouble feel really great

grin @ acknowledging his need for privacy

Well TR it was so awful for so long-a week of constipation,screams when had to poo,poo in pants for ages and real misery at the whole thing.My intention is to reassure those having probs that it can be ok and to say that when an articlate child says,'Dont watch me!'he might actually mean it.

TrinityRhino Sat 11-Jul-09 20:40:24

well that sounds fair enough but your op says none of that

it comes across as smug 'we just had to scatter some potties around and not look and he's trained'

if you didn't mean that then I think you need to explain fully

and I wasn't bothered btw cause I had to hell to tains girls and then my third did it herself 2 weeks before her second birthday

day AND night

fucking amazing!

Well, pranma, I am taking comfort from your comments..

TrinityRhino, do you have to swear??? (and are you aware you are coming over quite threatening?)

TrinityRhino Sat 11-Jul-09 22:08:42

you are kidding me right?

no chance I'm coming across as threatening

and no I dont need to swear

TrinityRhino Sat 11-Jul-09 22:10:15

kaffywaffy - second day on mn eh??

pranma Sat 11-Jul-09 22:26:23

Thanks kaffy thats what I hoped
never mind TR you have a little go at me if you like,I dont mind and I have nowt to be smug about-its my dgs not ds-my dd and oh did all the work and it took 5months from stsrt to finish-I put lots of miserable posts on at first[I have dgs when dd is at work and I was worrying aboutme messing up].I didnt go into detail in my op because I just wanted to share a bit,its not really that interesting,just nice.

I have reported TR for threatening behaviour.
I am not going to rise to the bait.
Keep up the good work pranma x

Mumsnet rocks!

TrinityRhino Sat 11-Jul-09 22:53:22

lol so funny

Pranma, I wasn't having a go

I was letting you know that your op could be construed as smug and maybe you would want to ellaborate so as to help others which is what I assumed you were trying to do

nappyaddict Sat 11-Jul-09 22:55:06

I'd love to know how she's being threatening hmm

Thunderduck Sat 11-Jul-09 22:57:25

Threatening? Threatening what/whom?

QuintessentialShadow Sat 11-Jul-09 22:58:15

kaffywaffy, are you quite ok? In yourself, I mean?

KnickKnack Sat 11-Jul-09 22:58:37

how bizzare hmm of course TR wasn't threatening.

pmsl at threatening - I mean really! A bit blnt perhaps, but threatening? hmm

GypsyMoth Sat 11-Jul-09 23:05:38

Reported for what? Oh my god, this place is fast becoming a joke!!! It really is!!!

thumbwitch Sat 11-Jul-09 23:05:51

blnt = blunt blush

thumbwitch Sat 11-Jul-09 23:06:24

btw, for you pranma!

Jaquelinehyde Sat 11-Jul-09 23:14:23


Wow someone needs to take a chill pill.

Oh shit that's me reported for pushing drugs.

Yurtgirl Sat 11-Jul-09 23:14:46

FWIW I think the op was smug
Trinty wasnt threatening but wasnt exactly polite either - blunt definitely
And if you didnt need to swear why did you?

But not a post I would report
But then I wouldnt start another thread about it either

thumbwitch Sat 11-Jul-09 23:14:54


Yurtgirl Sat 11-Jul-09 23:16:33

Im addicted to tic tacs - they are my chill pills, esp now they are in loads of flavours
