Always goes to bed ok 730ish then always calls for poo or pee...

Been doing this for months!!!

We always sit on toilet before and never does anything...then we threaten to not do stories etc and then always does poo once settled in bed after half hour

but very unsettling for us....ends up sleeping at 9 earliest....

Anyone have this? Advice?

We've been there. We say she can go to the loo on her own if she needs to go but we don't go to her. Essentially she's using it as a stalling tactic (next is they need water, they need their covers on, they need their favouritest-ever book from the depths of downstairs etc etc).

DD2 is now starting with all of these too (not yet 3). We're wise to her and put up with no nonsense (poor wee thing!) grin

four year olds can take themselves to the toilet, so leave child to do so.
