Hello
Am on day 5 of potty training and im one step away from giving up. My dd is 23 months she gets where the pee and poo needs to go and if i put her on the toilet when she needs to go she this happily and is very happy when she does. But she won't tell me when she needs to go, i syndromes catch her doing that wee dance and just put her on the toilet. I would like some advice as to what to do because of she doesn't communicate it will be very difficult to get things done i can't watch her 24/7

she's Not ready by the sound of it, he body is able to hold but she just does make the connection with letting it go yet.

Not a big problem, just wait a while.

create a habit of going to toilet. time how long she is able to go without going on a potty and then say "its toilet time "and precist putting her on a potty lets say every hour, she soon gets it and will tell you. good luck

She's still very young. My son was not fully trained until 3. He was trained at home for months but would forget to tell me when out and about and it was a nightmare.

In the end, I just put him in pants to go out (rather than pull ups) and just thought to myself 'he's gotta get used to it' even if I got to take numerous spare outfits.. But it worked a treat.. It's like he knew that it was time for big boy pants rather than being lazy in pull ups!

You do need to keep reminding her.
Butterfly has made a good suggestion of every hour.

Set an alarm on your phone or use a kitchen timer.
Don't put her back in nappies.

She's not even 2 yet? Can I ask why you started her now anyway? There's no harm in putting her back in nappies if she's not ready, it won't be going back when you try again as she'll be more ready IYSWIM. Children's brains need to be developed to understand when they need to go and 23 months is still very young for this to have happened.

She probably isn't too young. 30 years ago most children were potty trained around age 2.
Recently my four DGC were potty trained before they were two.

I don't think children's' brains have changed that much over 30 years.
