DD is 22 mths and has been very interested in the potty/toilet and wees and poos for over 6mths. She has been quite able to articulate when she is ready to go and since the weather warmed up a couple of weeks ago, we've switched to undies at home and pullups at kindy, letting them know that we are TT except for nap time.
Things started out well, but since DD has become more conscious of what she's doing, she seems to be holding it in. I am worried about UTIs and constipation now.
She seems well aware that these things go in the potty, but when she takes off her pants and sits down, she gets straight up again and cries and holds onto herself. Then a few minutes later with much grabbing of herself, she finally wees in her undies and then cries.
We're not making a fuss of the accidents and I'm planning to make her a sticker chart - if anyone has suggestions of what to put on it that would be very welcome - but I just want to find a way to keep her on the potty long enough to do what she needs to do.
I have tried books, songs, special toys, even the TV, but she's just not into it.
Maybe we should try a different potty?
