DS is 2y7m. I've been preparing him for TT for a few months, saying that he'd wear undies & go in the toilet when he was a big boy etc. He sporadically tells us after doing a poo - maybe 30% of the time, and never for a wee. But he has decided he wanted to wear undies (asked for them Weds morning), so I thought Id give TT a go. I am trying the 3 day method, but pretty modified in that we can't do 3 continuous days, some days we have to leave the house, and he goes to day care 2 days a week. I also do ask him / try him on the toilet from time to time (against the advice of the method) as well as rushing him to the toilet when a wee starts (what the method suggests).
So first day, we only had 1/2 a day to TT, and it was basically all wees on the floor, as I expected. No problem - just praised him lots.
2nd day was day care - took him in undies and they put him back into a pull-up once he'd had an accident pretty soon after arriving. They put him on the toilet every 20 mins and once he did do a wee on the toilet
Today is the 2nd real day of TT and we have stayed in all day. He has done pretty well in that he's finished off 2 wees on the toilet, after I plonked him on it when he'd started on the floor. Earlier this arvo he did 2 other wees on the toilet after I put him on there before he had started. I have rewarded him with lots of praise & stickers these times.
The rest of the arvo has been terrible though - wees on the floor every 15 min. I have found it pretty dispiriting after the earlier progress. I may have given him too much fluid!
Tomorrow is daycare again, so doubtless they will put him back in pull-ups. I have the option of starting work late tomorrow so could TT at home in the morn so he only has 1/2 day of pull-ups. Fri we could spend all day at home, but the weekend we have stuff on that we can't really move.
So just thinking ahead, do you think is it worth continuing after the weekend if on Fri he is still having as many accidents as he is now (today we went through 20 pairs of undies). When it hasnt been 3 straight days, do you think they take a bit longer, or should I still be expecting it to click on Fri ?(for him to at least realise he is wet, which he doesnt at the moment and just continues playing if I dont scoop him up). Or if he is still having so many accidents on Fri, would I be best to put him back in pull-ups and give it a go next month?
