Fisharefriendsnotfood · 23/07/2012 05:55
Have booked the week off from all usual activities, hoping to crack it this week. Ds is 2.6 and well ready just lazy. I'm 26 weeks pregnant with dc3 and not ready at all
Anyone else joining me?

Well, you've picked a good week!
Kveta · 23/07/2012 05:59
We are on day 3 and losing the will to live! ds 2.9 and was ready we thought.
Fisharefriendsnotfood · 23/07/2012 06:11
Oh no! Positive stories only please sticks fingers in ears

Kveta... Give it a week, if it's no better at all, I would say it's not the right time.
My DS wasn't potty trained until 3.3, my DD was 2.0...
They all get there!

DS has been telling us when he is peeing or pooing in his nappy recently, his friend is potty trained and DS talks about this, but he just doesn't care if he is wet un his pants at all!
And if we suggest potty usage, he has a tantrum. Sigh. Will give it another day or two then maybe leave it a couple of weeks rather than forcing the issue.

I tried about 6 weeks ago and had great success for the first day, then he suddenly decided he didn't like the potty and I caved . It means he can do it though so am determined to sort it this week. Let's face it it's not going to get any easier for me is it

DS (3 in Sep) took it upon himself to remove nappy 2 weekends ago, and we've done grand! 1-2 minor accidents (drips), and for first 2 days poo'd in pants but niw he's giving us plenty of warnings. He's moved to toilet as more comfortable than potty, and he sees that as being like Mummy and Daddy , we've even managed 3-4 reasonable length car journeys. Spain in 2 weeks may be a test but have bought a travel potty so as to not get caught short!

DS is also 3 in september. started asking to use the potty in january, then refused to have anything to do with it ~march -june (when DD was born) and has started asking about it again recently.
we have just found that a chocolate button is not enough bribery, but a mini reeces peanut butter cup is, so maybe we'll get him trained before finishing the bag of them my friend brought back from the USA for us!!
I'm not sure what counts as success though - 2 wettings in a day is good or bad? he says he needs the potty, but then doesn't produce anything once there.
poos - he has always been erratic with them, can go 2-3 days between, so none have fallen on training days yet. should be today.
he has stopped drinking as much since potty training started so we are offering him a drink every hour or so - he's mainly refusing.
I think he's ready, but is so bloody minded and also thrown by DD's arrival that he is caught between wanting to move out of nappies and wanting to still be our baby. time will tell I guess?!
Fisharefriendsnotfood · 23/07/2012 08:32
I wouldn't be in such a hurry but want it all sorted well before baby arrives. Good luck everyone
Fisharefriendsnotfood · 23/07/2012 09:51
Great, ds has a temperature what to bloody do now, do I stick with the plan?
jinglesticks · 23/07/2012 17:56
In the same position here, 20 weeks pg so want to potty train dd (2.6) this summer. We started on Friday, so day 4 today and it seems to be going as expected, some accidents but progress I think.
Re the temperature, I'd see how he goes. If he is really poorly then you should probably stop, if it's just a cold, or too much sun then keep going.

I am tempted...
DD2 just turned 2 last month. She tells me when she's been to the toilet and often says 'I need a wee'.
She also keeps taking her nappy off and is a pain to wipe after a dirty nappy, so life may be easier if she's out of nappies.
She took her nappy off this morning so I left it off as we were playing in the garden and took the potty out - told her to wee in the potty if she needed one. She weed three times in the garden (none on the potty) then I put her nappy back on in the afternoon as we went out.
At bathtime I asked her if she wanted to go on the potty and she said no, then DD1 asked her if she wanted to go on the toilet and she said yes. Promptly got on and did a wee in the toilet! First time she's done anything.
I'm now wondering if I should jsut go for it this week as we have no plans and the weather is nice...We're going away to my parents in a fortnight so thought it might be a pain to do it before then - but I guess I could just put a pull up on for the journey (she only wears nappies so I think we could get away with calling them special pants). At least with DH off and my parents around I won't have the hell of 'marking' her through the early weeks of going out nappy free alone.
FIsharefriends - ooh, that's a tricky one :( Does he seem ill? Could it just be the hot weather that pushed his temp up?
Fisharefriendsnotfood · 23/07/2012 18:19
I'm at the end of my rope, heading to bed shortly! No successes at all!!!! piles of washing..
Here's hoping to a better day tomorrow
Thanks for the company everyone, hope you had a better day than us
Kveta · 23/07/2012 18:48
could have been worse here, he had 2 accidents (one very minor) and one pant wetting on purpose because 'it funny mummy' but several potty usages and lots of chocs for him, plus he drank a lot more today.
thankfully good weather meant he could pootle around the garden all day in just pants, and I got loads of washing done. fingers crossed for tomorrow!
Kveta · 24/07/2012 09:07
2 accidents/deliberate wettings tjis morning, and a tantrum because daddy doesn't have fireman sam pants
how's it going chez fish?
PosieParker · 24/07/2012 09:09
Ha.....I was you! But I just waited as Ds was adamant he idn't want to.......
He said I want the potty one day and has worn pants ever since.
Fisharefriendsnotfood · 24/07/2012 09:40
He is proving to have a camel like bladder today, no action on any front since taking off pull up about 7.30. He pooed in pull up last night too.
In plus side temp seems ok today whereas I feel rotten and very faint.
Hang in there K it's a trying time
Fisharefriendsnotfood · 24/07/2012 11:42
Woo hoo first wee on potty
Kveta · 24/07/2012 13:22
2 pees and a poo on the potty today! and an accident where he told me he needed to pee whilst peeing. need to work on that I think :o
well done to your DS!
Fisharefriendsnotfood · 24/07/2012 18:15

Kveta · 24/07/2012 18:27

Congrats fish and kveta!
Some kind of tummy bug here. What crap timing (pardon the pun!)
So back to nappies today (four dirty nappies and counting so far :( )
Fisharefriendsnotfood · 25/07/2012 09:05
Oh wish that sucks. Hopefully it'll pass off quickly..
I could use some advice. Ds is normally an at least 2 poos a day child and has spent all yesterday and this morning saying he needs a poo but nothing happening.
Poor child is holding his bum, then sitting on potty for aagggeeeeesssss but nothing happening. Think he just is frightened to let it out iyswim.. Any tips?
He is sat on potty eating raisins drinking a smoothie at the moment
Kveta · 25/07/2012 13:17
oh that's rough wish :( hope it passes quickly.
fish no idea what to advise re: poo, my DS loves to defecate al fresco, it's the peeing we need to sort out.
maybe start a new thread asking for help?
