    Default Help please (or reassurance that DS is normal).

    DS1 is 3y2m and is not toilet trained. Over summer he got really good at it and wasn't having accidents at home. Would not use a toilet anywhere else so had to stay in nappies at daycare. For the last few months he has been terrible and now needs a nappy at home as he wees everywhere. If you ask him to go to the toilet he refuses then wets himself straight away. I know it's normal to regress a bit but this has been going on for ages and because of his age I'm starting to feel it will never happen. Any hints please?

    I feel your frustration. It took my DS until almost 4 to go to the toilet for poop. He was good with wee but wouldn't go number 2 I started him in preschool told them he was still toilet training he saw all the other kids do it & he did too. Also at home we had a deal of sorts if he went all day without accident & used toilet he got a $2 crazy clarks toy , if he went all week he got to go shopping & pick out what ever he wanted it worked really well I think it's all about finding the child's currency

    My DS took months to train. I tried the 3 day toilet training method. Uh, no. It took him 4 months. But now he's 3.5 and completely trained. Once the day training kicked in, he night trained himself a week later. So don't give up hope! Hang in there, and it will eventually happen.

    Oh - And get the blue loo tablets you can put in the cistern that turns the water blue. This gave my DS a real incentive to use the toilet because the blue water just blew him away!

    Ds was a bit slow with toilet training and I guess being my first child I was probably a bit clueless as well. He wasn't totally toilet trained until he was 3 and a half. He just turned 4 last week and I still put him in pull ups for bed even though he is dry a majority of the mornings.
