I mean, I didn't expect it to be exciting exactly, but God, it's dull. All DD wants to talk about is wees and poos and potties and knickers...

I suppose I should be glad she's taking to it, but it's only day one and I'm already on the gin!

Oh yes it's boring and then you get to spend vast chunks of time chatting to them whilst they're sitting on the toilet.
I seem to spend 90% of my life in toilets with one or other of the dc.

I'm on day two today and we are doing ok but yes it's boring being stuck in the house constantly taking about potties and poos etc

I'm potty training child number 3 at the moment, she's 3. Yes very boring.

I'm glad it's not just me!

1Evaline, she's 2 years 5 months. This is the first proper attempt We've had a potty around for a while and she's done the odd wee in it, but this week was the into-knickers real deal. We ventured out of the house today, with no accidents. (Well, that's not quite true: there were no wee-or-poo-accidents, but she did manage to fall off the potette in the park!) How old's your little one?

My dd is 2.7 we tried her last month but she would become quite traumatic on the potty so after 2 days we stopped as she was withholding pee for most of the day and it wasn't fair on her.

We will be going on to day 3 tomorrow this time and it feels much less stressful and relaxed than before. On day 1 she had 3 accidents and 3 on potty and today we had 3
accidents and 4 in potty so hope tomorrow goes better. She's a little afraid to pee free flowing without a nappy on which is her problem, the more we do it the more she will get used to it. If she is ok tomorrow I might go a short walk as it's extremely boring in the house all day.

Good luck! Hope leaving the house is a success smile

Mine's at nursery today - very pleased with her "grown up lady knickers" so we'll see how it goes. (The nursery have been trying to get men to train her since the start of the year but I declined until now as DC2 was born in January and there was enough laundry to cope with as it was!)

What way do the nursery train her will they just take her to the loo every so often. Dd stayed dry when we went out today and when we came back I sat her on potty for ten minutes and she didn't want to do anything so stood up and walked into kitchen and peed on the floor oh whyyy lol

Ah that does seem to be the way! Nice one on a successful trip out, though!

At nursery there are potties in the nappy changing area which is attached to her room, so she can just wander in there if she needs to go. I think they remind them every 15 minutes or something. There are 8 kids in her room, most of whom are toilet training now, so if it's nori forbid us it must be really boring for them. No wonder they want her trained!

Today we were out of the house for 6 hours, and she got to wee on a train, in an airport, on a plane and in a random pub where we had to make an emergency stop before she did a wee in the car. I maybe didn't pick the best week to decide to train her!
