    Default Holding on

    Dd 3.5 is just starting to toilet training over the last few days and she was going pretty well until yesterday when she did one wee in the toilet and one in her undies. Accidents are a part of learning so I wasn't too worried about that, but today she's been holding her urine in until it hurts, she was in so much discomfort this morning until she relented and actually wee'd on the toilet.
    Then this afternoon she pooed her pants and wee'd aswell, then later this afternoon she was holding on again, she would ask to go, then just sit there without doing anything until she was too uncomfortable and finally relented again.
    Has anyone else been through this? How can we help her?

    I havent been through that sorry but i think constant reminders to go to the toilet should help. Start them off quite often then slowly make the time longer. Sometimes kids are just so interested in what they are doing they become distracted and ignore their signs to go to the toilet.

    Good luck

    kids often forget to wee/poo. So it might be helpful for you both to put a timer on and tell her that whenever the timer goes its time for her to go too. She feels like she's accomplished something (not having an accident for some time) and the timer is 'giving her permission' to go.

    does that make sense -

    She's had no accidents since Thursday and today she went 6 times without holding it in. I think we're over the rough patch *knocks on wood*
