2.6 year old dd. Knows exactly when she wants to do wee or poo and can hold on for ages. Refuses to use potty or toilet, but asks for nappy and then does said wee or poo. Half-hearted go at weeing in her nappy spread over the potty a couple of times, but she's not keen on it. Shall I don her 'not ready' and leave it a few weeks?

You could have her "teach" her doll how to use the potty and see if that lights a spark.

Thanks. We've done this quite a lot. She often uses the toilet quite happily at nursery or sometimes lets someone other than me help her eg friend's mum. From what she's said, a lot of it is because she wants to be like her little brother (4.5 months). I've been trying to big up the 'he's too little for x, you're big enough for x'. I bloody hope that she's not going to wait a couple of years before he's out of nappies!
