Hi I have a 17 month old daughter and has been advanced on everything she is doing i have no idea what signs to look for to start potting training and what to do can anyone give me some advice to help me on our way
Can she tell you before she does a poo/wee? I didn't start with D until she was 2.4, but I'm sure many other people who started much earlier will be able to advise. 17 months might be jumping the gun a little.
no she cant say anything like that at the moment but when i do take her nappy off and let her walk around she stands round crossing her legs and when i do put a nappy back on fills her nappy like she was holding it
i do it by spending a week in my kitchen (hard floor) putting her on the potty after meals/sleeps/baths with a story/cbeebies and rewarding any wee that goes in with a sweet. lots of drinks and high-fibre food (no scrambled eggs) i also demonstrate by wee-ing on the potty myself, saying how clever i am
they get the idea what to do, and hopefully then you can just take them every hour or so, until they start asking (some will do this straight away by non-lingual means)
