I'm starting too with DD nearly 2.5. I have three big containers of treats- trying, wees, and poos. If she tries she gets a little choc button or something similar. A wee gets a freddo or similar. A poo gets a kinder surprise or giant freddo.
Pretty sure no parenting expert would support this plan but you know what? It's working. She's started asking to go and nearly giving herself hemaroids trying to push a poo out that's not there .
I also found leaving the nappy off helped with no undies either, I think she didn't know the difference.

We did the cold turkey thing around that age and it didn't take long at all. 2 weeks maybe? To be accident free. We also took his night nappies away at Christmas time cold turkey (age 3.5) and he's only had one accident so far. We just made a big deal of him going and for poos on the toilet he gets a treat.

Thanks again everyone. Will try again on Fri/Sa/Sun tis week (he's at daycare tommorrow). If it doesn't work maybe I'll wait a month or so.

I got my DS who is nearly 3 completely dry and taking himself off for wees. It's the number 2s I have had no luck with. He has chronic constipation anyway and is under a paediatric gastroenterologist for it so don't want to make things worse. I think if I could just get him to do one poo on the potty he would get how much better it is. I just don't know how to achieve it. Any ideas?
Pesca, I went cold turkey last Monday and put DS in briefs. He had a few accidents the first day or two. He would say he didn't want to go so I wouldn't push it and then he would have an accident. I ended up putting him on the potty anyway even if he said no. But he has been familiar with it for a while. We have had it around and put him on it before baths and bed. Maybe try that with your DS for a few weeks and then try again.
I think toilet training is a big step!
