    oh god - that would be awful.

    We compromised ... pullups.

    After 4 accidents in a day, she got pullups. 4 was the most I could handle.

    In truth, it only took about 3 weeks from fully nappies to very rare accidents - and night time was basically overnight. She was dry a few nights in a row, so I put her in knickers and she was fine.

    For holidays, I would negotiate ... back in pullups/nappies for that time. they have no control - its "I need to go to the toilet ... NOW" you have no time to get to a toilet.

    Still try and get him to tell you, and get to a toilet. But wear pullups just in case.

    My dd is 3.5 and has just gotten the concept of using the toilet for both wee's and poo's (still has nappy at night)
    We started TT at 1.
    She just "got it" one day.
    I honestly though it would never happen!

    I would sit her on the toilet about 4 times a day and read her a kids TT book, we had a sticker chart for every time she sat on the toilet.
    I started telling her at nappy changes "it's all wet from wee's! Tell mum next time you make your nappy wet" she finally started telling us "I did a wee and my happy is wet" and I started telling her that it would be fun to do that on the toilet.
    She did a wee on the toilet one day and I pretty much threw a party in the bathroom and I gave her a bowl of Lollies she caught on kind of quick after that.
    poo's were very hard.
    She loves barbies so we did the same thing with her telling us about poo's in the nappy, we then moved her onto the toilet with a nappy on to do poo's and we would buy her a Barbie for doing it.
    About 2 weeks ago she just took her nappy off and went, with out bribing or reminding her, she just went.
    She has been in undies during the day for 2 weeks now with no accidents and the last 3 nights her nappy has been dry in the morning so tonight will be the first night of her sleeping in undies.

    I threw all pressure out the window and literally spent 2 years making the toilet a fun and exciting place.
    It's been a long road but it seems we have finally gotten there!

    My 2 year old showed her interest by taking off her nappy and doing a poo on a cushion on the floor lol. Why the cushion I'll never know haha kids. We have a potty now but it's still pretty touch and go. It takes time..

    My DS is 2.5 as well and is exactly the same. I tried it all big boy undies, nappy free, bribery he just hasn't got it and really doesn't show any interest. He actually gets a bit upset sometimes when I suggest sitting on the toilet or potty.

    I'm at a loss an I don't want it to be traumatic. He every now and then tells me he has done a poo but he rarely has.

    He is just slightly a bit young IMO - he hasn't put it all together. I am now trying Tmi where I tell him I'm going to the toilet for wee wee or poo poo and he likes I barge in so I'm hoping since I'm drawing attention to it he may want to try it???

    I figure by 3 if he is still showing no interest I will step up my game...

    My DD is also 2.5 without TT. I tried the 3 day potty training with her and by the 3rd day IT WORKED!!! After that her stubbornness came into being and she refused to use the potty at all. Talk about frustrating.
    Will also try again when the weather warms up and hope to god she's trained by 3!!
    Cheeky toddler!

    I disagree that children need to be 'taught' to be interested. My DD was around 2, woke up one morning and said 'Mama, I learn toilet'. That was it. Hardly had an accident since. We had knickers in the house for her to wear, thankfully, and a potty. She'd seen us use the toilet but not really any other 'prompting'.

    *I* wouldn't be worried, he's still so little

    My 2.5 year old is toilet training. She just laid a giant turd on the couch. Don't hurry.
