We're a few weeks into TT my 3.5yo DD. She just wasn't ready until recently. She's great with wee but still only poops in her undies or night nappy. She tells me straight away and sometimes when it's coming but won't do it in the toilet. It's frustrating but she'll get there.
@Mod-Zeddie thats fantastic news!! Even if he wants a nappy at night for now that is still a huge step in the right direction.
We seem to have taken a backwards step with a few wee accidents. But that's ok I was kind of expecting it. I'm trying to not push it and go with what he's comfortable with as he is still so young (only just turned 2).
How has everyone approached doing number 2's on the toilet? I'm not even sure wherr to begin with that.
we are a mix of, nappies, potty toilet, outside.... Outside is a fave ATM, and I swear, just to **** me off occasionally the floor, carpet particularly. Oh, and when she's no pants, which is pretty much always, and being a poop, she will actually force herself to do little wee on the floor... Right in front of me and laughs..... Aghhh. So sick of poo.
and answer to how to go about it ....No idea. Just following her lead, and encouraging it, making suggestions when appropriate, like when I see she needs a poo ask if she wants potty or toilet. Dd would ask to sit on the loo, she's done three poo on the loo, but hasn't gone back to it, poos outside now... It's awesome chasing a naked toddler out the front with poo smeared on her butt. Hurrah!

DD (28 months) is toilet training at the moment. She's had undies/bare bum full time when awake for about 6 weeks now. It only took a couple of days for her to really get it, but we have intermittent accidents when she just doesn't want to use the toilet/wants to keep doing what she's doing. She'll go a week with no accidents, then pee on the floor 5 times in a day because she just doesn't want to go. Frustrating, but I'm impressed with how well she's done over all.
We have no idea how to go about sleeps yet though... I'm almost certain that she wakes up dry and then uses her nappy...but she won't get out of her bed by herself so undies to bed is just likely to end up in wet/pooey sheets every day.
I have totally given up. Ds is still sick so im not getting anywhere.. poor lil man. No point putting extra pressure on him.
