    Haha it seriously works. We would not let him use the ipad at all unless he had his undies on, so it was his choice. He was old enough at 3.5 to understand that. The first day he tantrummed for ages but we just kept saying 'put your undies on and you can use it'. I think he might have just tantrummed and sulked that day but didn't get the ipad.

    2nd day same thing but he gave in and put undies on, got ipad for approx 30 mins or until he got distracted. Wanted a nappy back on so ipad went on top of the fridge and he got a nappy on. He may have asked for it back but same thing, undies on and he can use it 30 mins.

    Eventually he realized he didn't want nappies on. He did have a couple of accidents every now and then but we didn't make a fuss. And i read somewhere that you shouldn't remind over 3s to use the toilet because they need to learn to pay attention to their own body. So once he had undies on we just kept going with our day. If he wet himself then so be it but i could literally count on one hand how many times that happened.

    Good luck!

    And this is a bit weird but we also invented the toilet fairy. After he used the toilet, a special toilet fairy would leave him some coins or a lolly somewhere in the house for him to find. So he had a game to play after using the loo. Toilet fairy game only lasted a few weeks and then we told ds she moved on to help another little boy learn to use the toilet and we went to the toy shop and he got to spend the coins on a new toy to remember the toilet fairy by.

    That sounds really strange now that i think about it! Lol and i lot of effort!

    My dd isn't even 2 yet and she toilet trained herself pretty much, no rewards, no toilet fairy, nothing. .

    Thanks! :-) Umm night time was a bit hit and miss because we were so strongly encouraging him not to wear nappies so we just made sure he'd done a wee right before bed and used a waterproof mattress protector. Yes he wee'd the bed but it seemed such a contradiction to put him back in a nappy or even a pull up because he said 'but mum that's a nappy'. old enough to even realize the difference between the material of undies and the padded pull ups. He still wees the bed maybe once a month and he's 4.5 now. Yay for washing machines!

    We had Poo in toilet success this morning!!!

    he gets undies on as soon as he wakes up, and he went on the potty, then i was making breakfast and he comes in and says mummy poo, so i asked him potty or big toilet and he said big toilet, If he has an accident i get him to stand on toilet so i can take his undies off, he wanted to stand so i put him on the seat and took his undies off, then he sat down did wees and then pooed! i was so excited and so was DS. FX this is the start of no more nappies except for night because he is a heavy wetter.

    So i ordered some toilet training books to read with DS off book depository

    One of them arrived yesterday called "Even Pirates Poo" i'm going to take one to daycare for them to read with him, i told his carer that this one was a bit tongue in cheek and she started laughing and asked me to take it in. DS loved it last night when we read it so it went into his daycare bag so he could show his buddy Deidre (daycare carer). Will be interesting to see what she says when i pick him up tonight

    Still hit and miss with Poo's but we will get there, i'm hoping to have him almost completely trained before we head to MAckay for a holiday in october.
