Have given up at the moment. Instead spent afternoon clearing toys(lots of small toy cars) from floor and putting them in ds bedroom. Then set up dcs chosen toy to play with but dd keeps getting a mood on with her toy. Sheer frustration I think, anyway I must go and do tea. will Try again with potty training later OR tomorrow.

Set the kitchen timer for every half hour to remind you to take her.

Yes she will wear pants(only started today) but at the moment she's taken them off. Done no wees or poos yet.

Am right there with you with Nov 08 DD. She's just started getting very anxious about having no nappy on, so I am not going to force it and will try again in a couple of weeks.

I have no idea what I'm doing though.

Good luck for tomorrow.

I can understand what you are going through. My DS2 has just turned 3 (end July 08) and has been dry during the day and most nights for only 5 weeks. We tried to potty train and he wouldn't go anywhere near a toilet or potty hmm

5 weeks ago he decided that he wanted pants on like his brother and after a few accidents the first week he has been brilliant.

All of a sudden it just seemed to click with him so keep calm and your DD will get there.

Tethersend Nice to hear from people with the same age dc. We will probably be going through similar problems around the same time.

TIA to anyone else who might reply.
