DS is only 23 months so we weren't expecting or planning to TT for quite a while yet, but about a month ago we bought the mini toilet seat and step stool so we'd have them ready to go when needed. When we first got it we sat DS on there just to introduce the idea to him for future reference, and make sure he wasn't totally freaked out by it or anything.
Anyway, a couple of weeks ago he started unexpectedly running into the bathroom a few times a day saying some variation of "Nappy/wee/poo!" and trying to pull his pants down and pointing at the toilet. Which we found really surprising but we've been going along with it and sitting him on there every time he asks. He did a wee once (somehow still missed the bowl entirely but oh well! ), but every other time he just sits there for ~10 seconds then asks to get down.
So how should we be handling this? Should I just keep going along with his requests and hope that they end up more productive? Does his behaviour actually suggest he's ready for more parent-led toilet training or could he just be mindlessly repeating a behaviour he's seen?
He's at daycare 4x a week and I've let them know he's interested, so he's getting some exposure/encouragement there.
I didn't think I'd have to deal with this for another 6-12 months so know nothing!
