My son is 2years and 10 months. On friday i decided we would have pants and he liked the idea and said no nappy. He cant seem to grasp the concept of pulling down his pants and will wee straight through them or even poo in his pants. Ive tried to go pant less around the house but he gets cross.
Any tips so i can over come this?
Also nursey is it wrong to send him in pull nappy pants?

Doesn’t sound like he’s ready.

It’s a lot easier if you do it without trousers on and let them run to the potty somewhere where accidents don’t matter eg kitchen floor

I would read o crap it’s potty training

By Jamie glowacki - this really worked for us

It takes quite a number of days for it to click - you need to give it a fair go before you see if they are ready or not

You might need to turn the heating up a lot to make him comfy and get some special activities to keep him in the safe zone in your house where you don’t mind accidents

We pulled together a lot of books, some funny games that he hadn’t played for a while eg magnetic fishing etc

Send him to nursery in pants. Tell them you are potty training and they should follow your lead from home. They know how to deal with accidents.

Can you pull his pants down for him? It’s that what every parent does for the first few weeks?

It was months before ds1 could reliably pup his own pants and trousers up and down. There would have been loads of accidents if I left him to it.

As above, read oh crap, go bare bummed for a couple of days then just loose joggers. No pants for several weeks.

We decided to stop for the mean time. It was upsetting him and i dont want to scare him off the idea. I spoke to nursery and they thought he wasnt ready like i had in the back of my mind.

Read oh crap as recommended we'll in advance for next time. Worked for us and wasn't stressful at all, being naked on day 1 is key!

We did the Oh Crap method, worked really well for us too.

Also did the oh crap method and worked really well for us too!

No tips but solidarity grin - my son is 3yrs 2 months and still not getting it.

That makes me feel better

Ds2 has just finished day 3 of the oh crap method. Day 1 was great. Day 2 pretty rubbish, day 3 great. I remember ds1 being similar.

Stick with it @Nottalotta I think it was exactly the same for us!!
