View Full Version : How do I get DD to do poos in the toilet - HELP !!!!!!!!!
Hi, I have 2 beautiful DD's (one aged 4 and the other 2.5). I have troubles getting my 4 year old to do poos in the toilet. She is toilet trained and has been for many years however, because my youngest has still been in nappies she always asks for a nappy to do her poos.
I have been TT'ing my 2.5 year old and she will do poos on the toilet (when she doesn't do it in her pants).
I am really struggling to get my 4 year old to use the toilet. Does anyone have some useful tips I could try???
well its different for everyone , but a friend of mine told her boys (who were doing the same thing at 3) that there was no nappy's left they complained for about 3 days and then finally went in the toilet ,
some im sure will say this is a bad idea and can cause constipation , but she made sure she keept up there fluid intake and gave them things like apples and things that mad them go so they really had no choice,
3 days later no more pooing in nappies and have used the toilet ever since
I haven't had to go thru toilet training yet (myu oldest is just turned 2) but... I have bought a book called "anna on the big toilet" which shows the kid using the big loo just like mum. its really good, lovely pics, talks about leaving the potty behind, etc etc.
Can you talk up using the loo just like mum and make a big deal out of being a big girl etc? baby uses nappy, etc.
Sorry, maybe not much help, like I say I haven't been thru it.
