right, my head is everywhere at the moment so sorry if i go on and on and on....
trying to TT my DD2 at the moment and its doing my head in.
She has been well and truly ready for TT for at leat 4-6 weeks. i started TT her on mon and she did 2 wees in the toilet (screaming and crying tho!!!) and then 2 wees again yesterday in the toilet (again, screaming and crying wanting to get off) and nothing but on the tiles today. she is totally terrified of weeing and pooing in the toilet but will happily sit on the toilet naked for ages. shes done this for at least a month.
i try to encourage her and praise her when she has done it but tell her calmly when she has done it on the floor that she has to wee and poo in the toilet and she just says NO! and then when she wees on the floor she says "Mum! wee wee!!" and runs to the toilet. she can even hold and run to the toilet (or me) and say wee wee but is too scared to actually do one in the toilet.
i am just stuck at the moment. i can't put a nappy on her either. she just rips it right off and runs away. even if shes wearing shorts or a skirt over it. she just wants knickers or nothing on.
i'm also preg so very exhausted while also looking after my 3yo as well.... i have a scan on fri and even tho i dont want to put a nappy on her when we go out (cos that will obviously confuse her, right???) i think its the best thing...? now, thats IF she doesnt try and take it off. otherwise, i'll haev to bring lots of spare clothes!
so unfortunately (or fortuntaely???) theres no turning back. they say that CONSISTANCY is the best thing. but sometimes, i'm just so unsure... i know its only the 3rd day but DD1 was completely TT in 3 days. i also know i shouldnt compare the 2 tho... DD2 is very head strong.
i also know that the best thing for me is to be patient, be calm and be consistant and persistant.
is there anyone out there that can pleeeeeeease give me some encouragement to keep going. i know the worse thing i can do is turn back....
