Is anyone potty training an ex-preemie?

If so what age did you start? Was it different / more difficult than training your non-premature baby? Do you think at the potty training age they were still 'catching up'?

I'm currently trying to potty train my ex preemie. My daughter was 2months early. She now is 3 1/2. She pees in the potty but it's the pooping we struggle with.

My son was 6 weeks prem and was later than others to potty train. He was 4 in October and only came out of nappies at the beginning of the summer holidays, so just over 3 and a half. He's still in nappies at night.

Both mine were prem. DS was a 29-weeker & didn't train till 3yr 4m (actual, not corrected) then regressed., especially with poo. He was still soiling at 4, and I took him to see the GP, who said his guts were probably knackered from being prem. He is still in nappies at night at nearly 8.

DD was a 35-weeker & really late too: 3yr 6m. We tried before & it was disastrous eg weeing uncontrollably or withholding. Would try a day without pants once a month & one day she just cracked it.
