Apologies in advance for long post....
We started DS (2yrs, 3months) wearing undies during the day on Saturday last weekend.
So as of Day 6 it doesn't seem to have clicked yet.
We are having less accidents because he is holding on longer (on Monday he didn't do any wee or poo till just before 4pm!)
He can get through a nap keeping his pull-up dry.
However, we have yet to get him onto the toilet in time for him to actually go in there.
Our approach has been to just remind him to let us know if he needs to do wee's or poo's so we can help him go on the big boy toilet. Also giving lots of praise and stickers for remembering to keep his undies dry.
Then we just watch him closely looking for signs he's about to go. Once he starts having an accident I scoop him up and get him onto the toilet but really it all goes on the floor, none really in the toilet...except poo which we empty into the toilet.
He loves put the paper in the toilet and flushing.
A few times I've thought he was going to go and he's sat on toilet for a while and then had an accident shortly after getting off.
Prior to this he was telling me 'poo's' a few minutes before doing one in his nappy.
We spent the months leading up to this week talking about doing poo and wee in the toilet like mummy and daddy.
I guess I am a little concerned we have started him before he is ready because I have been pressured by those around me to get him out of nappies before baby 2 arrives in 8weeks.
He is very obsessed with his trains and part of me thinks he just gets too caught up in his play to remember to let me know he needs to go...even though I remind him constantly....
Am I being silly? Should I give him another week? Or should I just try again when he's older and asking to go to the toilet?
