    We are just going through TT again with DD2. she started this week and is doing fantastically she had 3 accidents on the first day (monday) and has not had an accident since at home. Haven't taken her out in undies yet as because if she wears knickers that's when she has an accident.

    DD1 was fully day and night trained at 2 & a half.

    Default Re: What age did u start......

    My DS1 was toilet trained at 2years 4 months, but didn't night train until just before he turned 4 but we weren't in a hurry for that.

    DS2 is 2yrs 4 months and not interested yet. I was hoping to have him TT'd by Xmas but if he isn't ready I won't rush it.

    We started at home no nappy .. Asked her every hour or so if she needed to go to the bathroom .. When that was fine did the same with outings .. Ask them a lot as often they forget and that's when accidents happen .. Don't make a big deal out of it .. As it is a normal thing we all do !!
    We didn't do star things or reward stuff ..

    good luck!?

    Default What age did u start......

    DD was out of day nappies before 2 and out of night nappies by 2.5.

    She pretty much trained herself. She decided she didn't want to wear nappies anymore then she just asked me not to put a night one on. She hasn't had one accident either. So I'm pretty lucky!

    We went cold turkey. We put a towel over her car seat JIC. I always took her to the toilet before we left the house and then when we arrived.

    Default What age did u start......

    I tried a few times with DD when she was 2, earlier 2's I mean, with no luck. She'd just be standing there blissfully unaware that she was doing a wee on the lounge room floor. Tried again about two months before her 3rd birthday and we were successful that time. I think, for us anyway, you could tell within the first couple of days whether the TT attempt was going to be successful. She will be 4 in Feb but is not night time trained yet. I'm not even bothering yet as she still has very wet nappies overnight. She's never cared if she's in wet pants so I reckon she'd just sleep in a wet bed all night without telling me!
    As for TT for wees, we used a potty in the lounge room and loose underpants for could pull off and on herself. That worked well for us.

    haha funny thing is we used no technique she was interested in using the potty like her big sister ( as in real toilet) and we started putting her on it and saying she would get an m&m if she went peeper and honestly she just started doing it and we just went no nappies for like a week and constant putting her on toilet and asking and within the week she was going potty and didn't want to pee on nappy' then we tried during nap time an she dodnt pee and last week we went without nappy at night time and she has now gona all week not peeing we just make sure she doesn't drink much before bed and goes potty before bed

    also make sure she goes potty before going into classes, before drivingany where etc! she was surprisingly awesome at it' thought itwpuld take sp much longer

    You can also get car seat protectors for car trips. They are thick and absorbent with quick wicking.

    Tips for out and about while toilet training - make sure you take toddler to the toilet before you leave the house and when you arrive at the destination. Take a few spare outfits and some plastic bags to place soiled items in if there is an accident.

    I didn't try to night train them for a while. Mainly because there was 2 of them and I didn't want to be cleaning them up and changing sheets for both of them at different times during the night.

    They were almost 4yrs when I realised I could leave their undies on and put a pullup over the top for night and that it would save any sheets washing etc. So, I did that and it worked straight away for DD#3. DD#2 took almost a month before she had no little accidents at night. (It was just small amounts like she would do a little bit in her sleep and wake up)

    I went cold turkey with DD#2 & DD#3 too. With real undies not training pants or anything. (With DD#1 I tried with training pants the first time and she basically treated them like a nappy so I did normal undies when I tried again) I put a cloth nappy over their car seats and pram and always carried a couple of pairs of undies etc just in case. With DD#2 & DD#3, they didn't have one accident while out but when DD#2 told me she needed to go it was basically an emergency so I had to rush.
