DS1 is 3y2m and is not toilet trained. Over summer he got really good at it and wasn't having accidents at home. Would not use a toilet anywhere else so had to stay in nappies at daycare. For the last few months he has been terrible and now needs a nappy at home as he wees everywhere. If you ask him to go to the toilet he refuses then wets himself straight away. I know it's normal to regress a bit but this has been going on for ages and because of his age I'm starting to feel it will never happen. Any hints please?

I feel your frustration. It took my DS until almost 4 to go to the toilet for poop. He was good with wee but wouldn't go number 2 I started him in preschool told them he was still toilet training he saw all the other kids do it & he did too. Also at home we had a deal of sorts if he went all day without accident & used toilet he got a $2 crazy clarks toy , if he went all week he got to go shopping & pick out what ever he wanted it worked really well I think it's all about finding the child's currency

My DS took months to train. I tried the 3 day toilet training method. Uh, no. It took him 4 months. But now he's 3.5 and completely trained. Once the day training kicked in, he night trained himself a week later. So don't give up hope! Hang in there, and it will eventually happen.
Oh - And get the blue loo tablets you can put in the cistern that turns the water blue. This gave my DS a real incentive to use the toilet because the blue water just blew him away!

Ds was a bit slow with toilet training and I guess being my first child I was probably a bit clueless as well. He wasn't totally toilet trained until he was 3 and a half. He just turned 4 last week and I still put him in pull ups for bed even though he is dry a majority of the mornings.
