    Default TOilet training - what do you do when they won't sit on the toilet?

    My daughter is 2 and today is day 6 of toilet training. She's doing about 75% of her wees in the toilet and even a few poos. Last night, she was passing wind and trying to hide so I knew a poo was imminent, but she wouldn't sit on the toilet. I wasn't going to force her so kept reminding her how happy it would make me if she did a poo on the toilet, how we could ring nanny to tell her she did a poo, she'd be a big girl like mummy and she could have a lolly, but she kept refusing. 5 minutes later, she has pooed her pants.

    Any tips on what I should do if this happens again?

    2 is still pretty young. I'd just keep up the encouragement but not push things.

    We have about 20 books next to the toilet and have told her a billion stories while she sits there. She's fine at sitting on the toilet, I think it was because she knew a poo was coming, that's what changed things.

    I used lots of enticement to keep my two on the loo when they were pooping in the beginning. Singing, dancing, reading books, special toys just for the loo etc.

    Just make sure they aren't constipated first. Then it can get distressing for them. Mine were on a high cabbage diet for 2 weeks as I sorted out the poo issue. They were 14mths and 18mths old respectively.
