DS1 is 2.5 years, and the ladies in his daycare room (he goes 2 days a week) have asked if we're starting to tt soon (all the other kids in his room (2-3yrs) are toilet training).
I'm so confused about how to start, so I thought I would test the waters slowly, and have tried sitting him on the toilet at each nappy change (before fresh nappy goes on), but he hates it. I have one of those all in one seat/ step things that go over the toilet, but he can't get up and turn around to sit down so I've been sitting him on it. The first few times he was ok, it was only for maybe 20 secs, I made a fuss about how good he was and we got off.
Now if I ask him if he wants to sit on the toilet he just shakes his head, so I've started sitting one of his dolls on there and talking all about what we do on the toilet. It's pretty obvious he's not ready, so do I just forget about it for the moment, or should I try getting a potty for him to sit on? Or do I keep 'training' his doll until he shows some interest? I don't want to push it, but not sure how I know when he is ready.
Any advice would be appreciated.
