    Default Toilet training- how long do you expect accidents?

    Dd turned 2 a couple of weeks ago. She's been in undies for one week today. She had quite a few wet undies on the morning of day 1 but then it seemed to click.
    Now she seems to typically have only one accident a day. Usually when it does happen it'll be when she's engrossed in something and she'll do the start of the wee in her pants. She always then stops weeing, tells me, and finishes in the potty.
    I'm just wondering how long accidents like this are to be expected? Any suggestions for what I could be doing to help her?

    I use the strategy of often saying " don't forget to tell mummy when you need to use the toilet". In this way you aren't asking if she needs to go and allowing her to recognise the signs for herself, but keeping it at the forefront of her mind. This worked for my twin daughters pretty quickly and over a few weeks i just eased off on the reminders.

    Thanks. That's a good tip. I'll see if changing my wording helps.
