My darling daughter was 2 in july and am thinking about toilet training her next week when am off work for a weeks holiday. Ave heard a few people saying let the child run around without nappy as they wont like the wetness on legs etc am thinking about doing it this way but i know it will be trial and error. Anyone else got any tips etc on how they managed the toilet training?? Shes slowly knowing when she's done a poo. If it doesnt work next week am off again in january.

thanks

We put them in their normal and clothes and underwear instead of just leaving them bottomless, its easier to wash clothes than the floor. We explain to them why they aren't wearing a nappy before and tell them exactly what to do when they need a wee or a poo, and we keep reminding them every half an hour or so and asking if they need the toilet. Sometimes we put them on the toilet as well and kind of practice getting on the toilet etc.

This is what we also did (and are still doing).

As has already been said,make a point of sitting her on the toilet regularly so she can relieve herself. Then as time progresses take her less often but ask her, "Do you need a wee?" and take her when she says yes. Then eventually she should tell you she wants to go. I didn't do the bare bum thing, I put mine in knickers/pants and explained about being a 'big girl/big boy' now like other people. Expect some accidents, it can take a few days for them to really realise they need to take themself to the toilet, after all they have spent all this time just going as and when! Good luck.

Thanks for the replys so far.

I havent put on trousers on her on monday, she had a couple of skirts on yesterday then had 2 accidents but i have been putting pants on her. She did a pee pee in the potty last night and today. But we've had 3 accidents today but got to expect that. Time will tell.

hi. my little boy was about 2 and a half when we started potty training, and the technique i used was so spot on, he was potty trained in 2 days, no exaggeration.
i explained what we were going to do, and set my alarm on my phone for 15minutes, when the alarm went off, we would go to the bathroom, and sit on the toilet for a few minutes. usually the first 2 times he didnt do anything, but then i started giving him juice and squash 'cos it makes the kidneys work harder and faster, literally cup anfter cup after cup. wen the alarm went off, back up to the toilet. he had about 3 accidents, but then he was dry within 2 days. the worse thing to do is start, and then stop. keep going, good luck.
o, i made the big mistake of saying 'do u want a wee?' no child wants to stop playing to go to the toilet, i then started 'do u need a wee?' that work much better. good luck. xx
