    Cue my DS1 is the exact same - and is also 2.5 today! He does everything the same as your DD.

    I've tried removing the nappy several times, but he still doesn't get it. He tells me after he has already done a wee. I ask him a million times a day and he says 'no' but will do a wee 2mins later. Frustrating. I hate TT!!!

    Unfortunately as I'm now back at work, I can't be consistent so at the end of a weekend, back in nappies he goes....

    Wise Enough - its hard isn't it! Congrats on an accident-free day!

    Pesca - I think our kids are quite similar in some ways! I'm not convinced dd really gets it either, although I think she's showing a lot of the signs of readiness so maybe she just needs a little longer to put it all together. I just don't want her seeing the toilet as purely a way of getting attention and losing sight of what it's actually for. I hope she starts getting it before this baby is born!

    Minds of their own, these little terrors!

    This is my DS...he's a super smart little guy but this seems to be the one thing he doesn't seem to grasp...

    I'm hoping it will just click one day (soon) and he be on his way!

    You might need to get rid of the nappy, free up a week to spend mainly at home and pop her in undies whenever she is up and awake. With DD3 I found having a potty in the lounge room helped, but DD2 prefered to use the toilet - I got a plastic step from kmart so she could reach the seat easily.

    I would take them to the toilet first thing in the morning, then before morning tea (and after if the didn't do a wee before eating) same at lunch time, morning tea time etc. It does take a bit of effort and you do need to get rid of the nappies and be prepared for the occasional mess - the towelling undies from Best & Less were good and helped to reduce the mess.

    Goodluck!

    We've gone cold turkey with the nappies with DD and tomorrow it will be 2 weeks since we started her. She took ALL of the first week to actually do anything on the loo...so frustrating! She was good at holding on, then would just wee everywhere.

    Finally, while at FOB's house, she did it. FOB and his DW put her on a routine and offered rewards, and pumped her full of fluids. It seems to have just clicked all of a sudden.

    She goes to full time daycare and has been great there with wee, and she's been mostly good at home. Poo is a different story, she is yet to do one in the loo unfortunately but I have faith that she will get it eventually.

    Has anyone here tried the toilet training video? I stumbled upon an advertising about it. It a bit convincing actually. Anyway, my DD is 16mos old and everytime she pees or poo she gets very angry with her diapers . Is this the right time to train her? Im not sure if she is irritated with her diapers but she gets really mad after she pee or poop on her diapers. Thus she does not like putting them back on.
