Toddlers: The Mumsnet Guide - advice and experiences from parents who have been in your position and lived to tell the tale!
DS1 is just about to turn 3 so we're attempting to crack toilet training. Today has been day one, pants since he got up at 8am.We've had four successful wees in the toilet, six wee accidents and a poo accident. Is this normal? Or is he just not ready yet?
That's really good for the first day! 4 successes!
That's not bad at all, remember your child has never had to hold it before, this is all new and it will take time.
Wow you've had something in the potty? Fantastic! Keep up the good work
Depends. We had none, but she was very, very, ready, had good control, could hold it, say when she needed, go when put on the toilet etc.Most people start a little before that. Just means you have to do more "training". How much depends on how far away from doing it themselves they are...
Well we've had another two accidents since my first post, but two more successes as well. I think I'll persevere for another week or two and hopefully there'll be some improvement.
Ignore the accidents and celebrate the ones at go in the potty.Second day is still a success if you get something in the potty. Third day you probably get more in the potty than the floor.Keep cheering and celebrating the good. Smarties or stickers help. Oh and wine for you! Have a bucket somewhere for the wet clothes and keep chucking in there and wash at the end of the day.
