Keeping them on the potty!

I’m following Gina Ford’s ‘Potty training in 7 days’ (quite misleading title, the first two stages are actually quite a bit longer but anyway...)

The first stage is to get darling daughter to sit on her potty for five minute spells - does anyone have any advice for achieving this? She’s almost 2 and showing every other sign of readiness. I just find she gets distracted, what can I do to help keep her there?

I used to sit mine on the potty after breakfast, lunch and dinner (using one of the chair type potties) and give them a Cbeebies, or similar, magazine. Worked well. Good luck!

@Judashascomeintosomemoney is this how you started? The book says to start with practice in clothes and make sure she can focus for 5 mins. But I may just skip this. How did you get on with the method you mentioned and how soon did you move on to full on all-day potty training after this? Thanks
