We also taught our daughter the sign for potty. She mainly used that at first but now is saying pee or poop too. She still really likes the sign for potty and wash (her hands). I think that helped her a lot!

My daughter Sophie will be 2 tomorrow :) on Nov 30 and she has just had her first poop on the potty!! The strange thing is, she hasn't done any "normal" potty training.
I started putting out small potties in the living room when she was abt 18 months and I would put her dolls on them and say that the big girl is going pee, just like mommy. From the get go I couldn't get her to sit on one. She likes them for the dolls but not for her. So I redirected my plan and got a seat that fits on my toilet seat with Sesame Street characters on it. That worked a bit better but she was still resistant. Again I didn't push the issue and decided to let her show me more signs she was ready to actively try potty training. We still offered her the seat but if she said no then we moved on, but sometimes she liked sitting on it for abt 5 seconds and get some toilet paper to play with. I seen it as a victory, 5 seconds I better then a no or tears. I decided to try rewarding her with a cookie if she sat on the toilet. This worked by increasing the amt of time she spent there from 5 seconds up to almost a minute. Still no pee though. I next decided to try letting her run naked since I was pretty goo at reading her signs. She peed on the floor, watched it come from her body, laughed and splashed in it!! This Happened every time I took her diaper off for free time. I didn't see this as helping our situation so I reduced her naked time to 2 or 3 times a day, usually before a bath an in the morning when we first try the potty. Accidents on the floor are less and she seems to associate her diaper being off with being in the bathroom so I think that's good.
Sometimes she has a #2 accident in the bath and she HATES that so the other day when she began straining in the tub I took her seat out and put it on the toilet and asked her if she wanted to poop on the potty. She said yes so I placed her on the potty, let her keep the toys she was playing with and I held her by the hips while I sat on the floor in front f her and she had her first potty victory!!! That was a few days ago and she will sit on the potty still but we haven't had anymore victories nor have we ever had pee.
Just keep up the good work and know that it will all come together when they are ready and not a moment before. Take heart from the small victories and praise both child and yourself. There are no failures when it comes to potty training, only experiences. Some days are hard but I keep reminding myself that there is nothing wrong with or me and that she won't be in diapers starting high school ;) this makes me feel better, hope it makes you smile too.

Kinda, sorta, not really. She'll poop in the potty about 50% of the time. She likes to sit on the potty. But she hasn't connected the peeing part yet.

I'm not really in a rush. I didn't really want to deal with regression after her brother came, so I haven't been pushing it at all.

I have a friend who's little girl thought she did something wrong when she pooped in the potty.

Congrats! What method did you use?

We ask him all the time and refer to it as potty, we use a reward system as well. :)



We ask him if he needs a wee wee or a poo poo to encourage him to tell us and it is a hard process for everyone involved and sometimes you feel like your failing when your actually doing ok, my husband keeps feeling like he is doing something wrong and i am trying to convince him hes doing everything right.



I hope it is just time that will get him to let us know, fingers crossed and we appreciate your help lots Brianna.



Many thanks.

Were potty training our son who was born november 2009, 23 months. We have been potty training for 3-4 days and the only problem we have is how to get our son to tell us when he needs to go instead of just going.

He does use the potty for both quite a lot but were wanting to increase his potty time and reduce accidents.

Does you daughter let you know yet?

I use token economy psychology and anti-smacking behavioural conditioning techniques and theyre working great, we just need him to tell us when he needs to go.

We praise him all the time he goes and we dont react when he has accidents, i am disabled so restricted mobility so my husband cleans up etc, but i am actively involved with all the teaching and playing and non-physical areas. Hes a happy child and shares and is well behaved. If he goes to open the door he looks at me for permission, we had to use other techniques so i could be in control of my son without having to move from where i am sat. Its worked well.

Were just hoping we can get him potty trained soon, he wears nappies for bed and to go out places when we go out but were using the no pants no nappies theory, where he has no bottoms on at all and it is working well for him.

Any tips or help, or any ways we could get him to tell us when he needs to go would be amazing and appreciated.

Many thanks.

We started a few months ago and she had been day trained for about a month...until this last week. She has gotten sick and that caused some accidents and a bit of a set back but she's better this morning and I'm hoping we can pick back up!! Still wears pull up at night and nap.

My DS will be 2 on 26 Nov. We haven't started yet but he has been taking interest in what mummy & daddy are doing on the toilet, which I'm happy about as I was hoping he would do this and then I would train over winter when things are less hectic for DH and I. Watch this space ;) And well done to you mums for starting already, it's inspiring to read about all your successes!

We haven't pushed the issue too much with DS but he has expressed interest in in over the past few weeks. So, when he asks to go or if we see that he's trying to poo, we put him on the potty. Sometimes he actually goes and sometimes he doesn't, but he's always really proud of himself for sitting on the potty and getting to use toilet paper (which he really just drops straight into the toilet) and trying to flush it. For now, we're just trying to make it relaxed and fun for him and trying to go at his pace. I have to admit, though, that I am very excited for the day we don't have to buy and change diapers anymore. :)

Ohh my daughter must be weird, she asks to see her poo when i change her nappy. We've kinda started training, but we've got bub#2 due in 2 weeks so i'm not going too hard on her. She wee's and poo's (sometimes) in the potty, but i havn't yet tried her all day in her knickers, just randomly thru i'll ask her if she wants to hav a wee in the potty and she generally does something. The problem is she'll only do a little and then want me to tip it out b4 she does anymore.

We have been doing light training for a few months now, she will always pee in the potty or outside but has yet to poo in it. Like your daughter she freaks out at seeing the poo. It was just winter here so now that its getting warmer we will start training alot more.
