DD is 22 months, and very vocal/ chatty with good comprehension.
We had a brief foray into potty training a few months ago. We had some success, but she would still wee on the floor if distracted. At that time she seemed to know when a poo was coming, but not when a wee was going to happen. So we decided to leave it for a bit longer.
We haven't tried again, but for the last week or so she's been very insistent about going to the toilet.
She'll say "I need do wee on toilet!" and run off there, but when she's sitting on it she doesn't do anything. Judging from the nappy, I'd say that it happens almost immediately after she has announced it, and therefore has already gone by the time she's sat on the loo.
She's really happy to sit on there, and it's sometimes a mission to get her off.
As I was cooking dinner she announced she needed to go to the toilet, and I said something like "Oh, it's okay, you can go soon" and then distracted her so that she would forget about it. I feel really bad! But I was cooking, I knew she'd sit on there forever and not do anything, and... well I probably did the wrong thing, I know...
I'm not sure what the right thing to do is? The problem is that we are out and about a lot over the coming days, and I'm worried I don't have the time I can block out at home to properly 'toilet train' her. And I don't know if she really is ready, as she's not making it in time.
But I don't want to discourage her, or ignore the signals either.
What would you do? Has anyone been in that situation?
And I'm wondering how anyone who is busy/ out a lot ever gets toilet training done??? I know that sounds terrible. Just a bit lost on this one.
