    I think a 3 year old, regardless of gender, often have issues holding on and realising they need to go before they go out.

    I'll be exactly the same with DD. I see girls taking bush wees all the time, I've never really noticed that its just a boy thing, tbh. The one thing that's maybe a bit different is that in my experience girls seem to TT a bit easier than boys- maybe that's why you don't see it so much? I was discussing this with DP the other day, because I was trying to explain to DS that when he feels a funny feeling under his tummy (ie his bladder) it means he needs to wee, but DP said that actually guys feel it more in their penis than bladder, so maybe with little boys there's much less warning when they need to go? I thought that was quite interesting.

    Couldn't agree more. But that still doesn't answer my question. That's fine - maybe there isn't one.

    that's interesting - like i said my girls have done plenty of bush wees but the type of public wees I'm referring to and that friends I know let their boys seem to be more broad than with girls. I mean where we used to live it wasn't uncommon for boys to run out from a fenced playground, wee under a tree and run back in and keep playing. Girls would be expected to go to the toilet (I'm talking 4 or even 5 yo).

    Like I said I'll be TT'ing a boy for first time in a few months so I guess it'll await me until then.

    DD1 was a breeze (eventually) whereas DD2 was hell on wheels.

    Personally I think it's a bit like saying boys generally talk later than girls. Might be true for 55% but there are plenty for whom it's not. And there are so many other factors that come in to play like age, birth order etc.

    I have one dd and one ds and agree i do tend to take my ds for more "bush" wee's then dd. This is because ds makes a total mess in toilets (even when he sits down it still manages to squirt out all over the floor). If I am out or at a friends house I prefer my ds to go outside rather than mess other people's toilets up. I would rather take him next to a public toilet then him pee all ver the place and have to clean it up. By the way my ds does have a medical reason why he pee's upwards. He has a piece of skin that half cover the hole (sorry tmi) and has alot of difficulty aiming.
    anyway that is why if you are at the park you will see me take dd to the toilet but make ds go against a tree.

    Reading this I suddenly recall taking care of a friend's daughter once and if she needs to go she needs to go. I had to strip her and she did it on the grass squatting. We were out far from home and I didnt have spare clothes to change her if she wet herself. And for girls they are definitely not easier, I mean you have to remove her bottoms completely or they will still wet their bottoms when they wee. For boys just pull the pants half way down. Maybe I dont have daughters and dont know an easier way.

    In my experience with 3 of each boys are harder than girls to train.

    Ask yourself that again when you do TT. When they have to go they HAVE to go.
