    It really depends on ths child too, my DS1 TT in 2 days at 2yrs old, and was nappy free after that. DS2 however refused to TT til he was 3.5yrs old. He was hard work.

    Yes it totally does depend on the child. There is no one-size-fits -all approach to TT that's for sure!

    for us....9-18 months was our hardest with all our kids. We now go through waves of good and hard times from teenagers to tots and in all honesty, no...it doesn't seem to get 'easier' because the older they get, the more challenging the problem can become.

    It probably depends on the type of person you are too really.

    Some people might find DD easier now if she were theirs... but I found her easy as a baby. Well, she WAS a fairly easy baby... but even so, when she cried, there was a reason, so I was understanding. It was "I am hungry, I am in pain, I am tired," etc. It was a straightforward reason. Now if she cries... god, it could be anything. It might be, "Because you looked at me in a way that irritated me and then when I yelled at you for it, you told me to be quiet, and that's really really unfair so the world is crashing down on me and I hate you so I'm going to cry," or some such crap.

    I find it hard to deal with people when they get emotional and irrational, particularly when it's over something absurd.

    As they get older some things get easier but there are always new challenges!
