hmm could anyone help me as i have been thinking about potty training! not sure when to start training mia! i bought her a potty a few months back and tried her then but she hates the potty and refuses to go anywhere near! Sad Face

so i bought her a seat that goes on the toilet and she sits on it with a little reasurance but just not sure if she is too young to understand what i am doing! Suspect

she will be 2 at the end of july, how old was other peoples childrn when they potty trained then? i know every child is different but could do with some advice! Embarassed

I was scared when i tried to potty train my son as i was told boys are more difficult than girl's my son was 1 and a half when we started and it was summer but it all fell to pieces when we went overseas and were constantly moving around ,but once we got home with in a week he was re-trained fully and we haven't looked back. he refused a potty but did well straight on the toilet. just remember to be consistent and praise them when do go.It is hard but they do get the hang of it goodluck babe don't stress xxxxxxxxxxx Shocked

do you think she is ready? or are you doing it because you think she should be potty trained?

I did Joseph at 25mths and he had it sussed in 3 days- I just stayed on and let him run around with nothing on and kept putting him on the potty (which I kept in the living room) then on day 3 I ventured out for short distances and moved the potty out to the hall and as the week went on I went out for longer and moved the potty up to the toilet. he soon ignored the potty and went to the toilet- after nearly 2 years of being dry he has now sussed standing to wee. Wink He is still wet at nights. My Pals DD was later to be dry during the day nearly 2 and 1/2 but sussed day and night at the same time. As you say they are all different.

she sill do it when she is ready. Good luck hun.x
