Mine isn't. With my oldest I just asked him on a regular basis if he wanted to go. If he didn't, I didn't make him. One day he just decided that he wanted to go and start using the potty. Since I let him decide when he was going to do it, I haven't had very many accidents with him. My March 08 baby girl will go sit on the potty, but not until after she's already gone to the bathroom in her diaper lol just let them go at their own pace, no kid ever starts kindergarten in a diaper so don't worry :)

My daughter is 2 and 1/2 she is fully potty trained even at night time. I got really lucky. But each kid is different just give your child time.

I bought my son a potty chair that is a stool and it is a truck that came with lots of stickers and what not. So when his father and I showed it to him about 3months ago we let him decorate it and what not, which he enjoyed..hes using the potty still and is wearing pull ups but sometimes he just dosent want to sit on the potty but rather tell me he just went poopee or pee or something,,lol..latley hes been doing very good but my mom said that sometimes boys take a little bit longer..so im praying and hoping we will have it down pack soon...:) good luck

I have been very lucky my little girl has been trained for about 4 months and during the night for about 3-4 weeks. she was born on the 27th. She is my 5th baby and I have not trained anyone. The just did it themselves. However, this little one was back and forth for months with toilet (no potties in this home another story) and diaper and then we just put her in panties and we had accdents, lots of them but very quickly with two weeeks were totaly traned. she has had an accident or two but is quite upset now when it happens.
good luck all children will be trained at some point.

My Gigi was born March 6th 08 and she tries now and then but mostly after she went already. She knows she refuses...stubborn! Not sure what to do but I was also told by the doctor not to push her. When she was tired of having a dirty butt she would go! I don't know I hope so! I vision myself going to high school with her wiping her butt! LOL!

My daughter was born March 31, 2008. I've had the little potty sitting in the bathroom since she was about 15 months old, so she could get used to the potty. Then at one time we had her sit on the potty she pee'd a little and music went off as a reward and it freaked her out. Then we went to the store and let her pick out a seat for the big potty. She liked that, and was saying through the store "My potty, that's mine". Eventually she did start sitting on the smaller potty again.
During the day when I would have to go, I would say "Mommy has to go potty" and she would come in the bathroom with me and sit on her little potty. I bought her "Abby Uses The Potty" and "It's Potty Time" (Which is gender specific) childrens books. She started to tell us that she has to poop before she poops. We thought she was ready.
I went to the store and bought Gerber cotton training pants and vinyl panties to cover the training pants. My husband and I put in a joint effort through out the day, of putting her on the potty frequently. Needless to say all of our timing was off, and she didn't tell us that day she had to poop and pooped in the training pants. She also wet in the training pants. After going through 12 training pants. We realized that she's just not ready yet. I think when they are ready they will learn and learn quick. But for now the training pants are on hold for a few months and then we will try again.

Our family just made a cross-country move, so it's hard to find a "good" time to start. We've tried to start a few times, but it didn't pan out. We just started REALLY trying, maybe 3 days ago. The first day of this new training was a real success! Blake had a little bit of pee on the potty each time we tried. He even went poop on the potty once! And he seemed so excited to try potty training! But the last two or three days, it's been much harder. And Blake doesn't seem to have any more interest. I guess we have to just keep trying and pushing for him to sit on the potty. What else can we do?

My son was born march 21 st and i have potty trained him during the day but nowhere near for night times yet, but i just did it as and when he wanted to, i never forced him, i just left him to do it when he was ready and he gradually just did it. He is in his 'big boy pants' all day now and only has a nappy on for bed. A good way to encourage them though is just to act really silly, jump up and down, praise them like mad, give them big cuddle's, hold there hands up in the air and shout yay at the top of your voice, they think its amazing :)

Jake was Mar 6 and we've been gradually potty training him for a few weeks now. We're not stressing about it and really just encouraging him to tell us when he needs the potty and rewarding him when he does tell us - we give him stickers. I'm a believer in reading when the child is ready...

[deleted account]

We're just started trying. We bribe her with M&M's. She gets 1-2 if she sits, 4-5 if she pees, and haven't decided how many if poos cause she hasn't done that yet. LOL

Wait until they show an interest. Otherwise you will be fighting a losing battle. Some boys aren't trained completely until age 3 1/2. Some kids won't poop in the potty until they are older. All kids are different. Eventually they get potty trained so don't sweat it.

Just potty trained mine :) She is a March 31st 2008 baby :) Potty training my daughter has been a sinch, quiet literally. For the first couple of days I pumped her FULL of water and juice, like I mean I went crazy with the water and juice. Then for the first day I sat her on the potty every hour. Everytime she would go pee or poop on the potty I would go crazy, dance, jump, scream, hoot, hollar, GO GO GO!!, youu name it, I did it. Then after I made a HUGE fuss she would get 2 smarties. She wanted the whole box the first 1 or 2 days but then she realized that if she peed on the potty lots she got lots of candy. I didn't use pull ups or anything, I used panties (the padded ones but they feel like panties). OH and the potty was in the livingroom for the first week. After the first week she then suddenly didn't have the candy anymore, AND the potty was in her room at nap time too. After 2 days of this, the potty then went to the bathroom. After about 3 or 4 days of her making it up the stairs to the bathroom the potty moved to being on top of the potty (a smaller seat kinda thing), with a stool, and it is amazing!! She has been potty trained for 3 or 4 weeks now and she has had 2 accidents since the first day (and the one time was because she was sick). Bedtime training should be more fun.

My daughter was born March 11th and has been actively working on potty training for 7 months. She still has an accident here and there, more when she's sick but for the most part she's pretty much potty trained. All kids reach this milestone in their own time though so don't push the issue to much. You'll know when your child is ready :).

My daughter was born March 28th and she's nearly completely potty rained. Except for today- in which she has had millions of accidents, 4 in less than an hour. I think she has had far too much to drink AND I'm laid up, so I have had the tv on for her.

Hi
My little girl was 2 on 29th March and is potty trained. From around 15months I used to leave her nappy off with the potty in full view but she really wasn't ready and it was more luck than anything else if she managed to do anything in it. Every couple of weeks I would try again, I never pushed her into it, if she had an accident I never made a fuss but if she used it I would make a huge fuss of her. Two weeks ago, SHE decided that she wanted the potty, I rewarded her with lots of praise and she got some stickers that she sticks on a chart but the real incentive for her, is washing her hands afterwards, she loves that more than anything, lol!! I have been putting a nappy on at night time as she is still in a cot and for the past 3 nights the nappy has been dry, time for the next milestone, putting her into a bed!! I can honestly say, she has not had one accident since she made the decision that she was ready and I am so proud of her. xx

My daughter is loving the potty so much she's carrying it around with her!!!AARRgghh not the most hygienic - we are trying but she is not completely potty trained she also hates wearing knickers and this results in a few accidents outside of the potty. So sorry I don't have any suggestions for you except that I can empathise because we're going through our own potty training adventures!

My son was born March 4th and he is not potty trained yet - sometimes he will sit on the toilet to copy his brothers...but through trial and error with his older brothers I learned there is no rush and they all get there in their own time.

Gosh no. I plan to start trying in two weeks, when we'll be home from a trip. I only have 1 mommy friend that has her 2 year old potty trained. The mom says that the girl has an older sister and that's what helped speed up the training.
No worries :)

My daughter Kinzie is a March 13th 2008 baby and is potty trained already but I think it was hard at first it her but when she seen my son going it made her want to go. If it wasnt for my son she wouldnt be potty trained. I had brought her a potty when she was a year and a half but she didnt want anything to do with it. But i hope your time potty training goes and quick as mine did.

Hey my daughter was born 14 March 08 and she is toilet training. She does to day care once a week and she never has any accidents there and seems fine with it. But when she is at home with me she gets a bit slack, so I'm just not pushing it. With not wearing nickers, i call them nickynoo's, which she seems to click with...



Kimberley is your child toilet training now? just realised this was posted in december

first of all I have been in childcare for 14 years and have a 2 year old I suggest first do not push her if scared get books, dvd and things to eas her concerns.... potty train a doll with her as well this may help Dont push her if she is still scared then give up and put it away for a week or two then maybe try again...... I also sugges dont get a litt potty get a potty ring that goes on your potty at home this will make it easier when you are in public. And if she hates panties let her run in just a dress or long shirt when you are at home I think this works better since she can see it and feel it this way. but I also agree with others she is still young. just remember Dont push her. Another thing that may work is a reward. and whatever reward you give her save it and only give it to her when she goes on the potty, but have another reward for just sitting on the potty and giving it a try. Also let her come in the bathroom with you when you go and let her see u go. another idea is let her HELP u Flush so she can get used to that as well. we started sitting on the potty every now and then when shay was about a year old now she loves it and she just turned 2 on the 12th and is doing very well with the potty! We wont be in pull ups much long when we go out or go to bed

My little darling has been trained since christmas 2009. I'm so proud of him!!! I got him to sit on the potty by doing something fun, like he likes looking at train pictures so I made a book of train pictures of even got some train magazines. He loves sitting on the potty cos I go through it with him, and when he does somethign in the potty he was jumps up with delight and claps. The fun thing I did for his brother when he was being trains was blow bubbles. So I just had to see what fitted in with the 2nd baby.

Good luck!!!

My daughter was born 11 March 2008. She is daytime potty trained and wakes up at night to ask for a new diaper when she wets it. In late December 2009, she began announcing when she had wet her diaper. By February, she was trying to remove her clothes to get her wet diaper off. I'm the slow one this round. Just prior to her 2nd birthday, I finally started regular potty training. On day one, she called the shots and was 100%. The next day she was 100%. Still a few accidents here and there, but she is still calling the shots. I also have a 6-year-old and 3-year-old. Neither of them were daytime trained until 30-31 months however I didn't dedicate a lot of time to potty training until then. With my older two, I had been working full time and now I stay home since we had 3 kids in 4 years, so I'm sure that has made a difference. My 2-year-old also sees potty chores all day long so she may have had greater awareness with so many us in the bathroom.

She's still young don't worry yet...potty training comes at different times. I am a mother of 3 girls my oldest is 8 now and she was fully trained by age 3, even through the night. I have a 3 1/2 year old and she was finally trained a few months ago but still wears diapers at night. My youngest will be 2 on the 29th and she is working on it but we are no where close. So no worries...it will come in time :)

My son was born on the 31st of march and at the moment is showing no signs of wanting to use the potty or the tiolet, as it gets really cold in winter here i was just going to leave it until it gets warm again so about sept, he doesn't even acknowledge the fact that he wets his training pants so i dont think he is ready. Every child is different!!!!!!!!

well my 2 year old has been potty training from last year. he knows when he wants to pea and he tells you and then go to the potty. when he has to deficate he would tell you after he has done it and does not want the training pants on him to feel it. for the most part i let him be bare but around the home so he can go to the potty. he is doing great.

they do it when there ready i have found, my son is showing no sighn of wanting to go on the potty yet, some do at their age but not all... you just have to wait for them to be ready..they tell you when they need to go and you tell them how clever they are when they do.

My son has been "trained" officially for about 3 weeks but we have let him run naked in the house for about 4 months and he has gone in the potty that whole time. I think the easiest way to let them run naked so they kind of learn when they feel it and then step it up after they have that down to learning not to go when they have pants on. But dont stress over it. Its more important that it works for you and the little one. Just one step at a time ;) Good luck!

Potty training is by far the most daunting task to date... my daughter has just turned 2 and she has good days and bad, bad days we have loads of accidents. She will go to the toilet or potty on her own and quite confidently but won't do anything almost like she is afraid.... is this just a patience issue that we have to pursue???

My son has been fully potty trained since Christmas day. We just sat his potty chair out and let him run around without clothes on. He watched the Potty Power dvd quite a few times and we did have a few piddles on the floor, but he caught on quick... whenever we saw him going where he wasn't supposed to we would just move him to the potty chair and tell him that he was supposed to go in the potty. On Christmas day it was like he totally made the connection, a light bulb came on and he started using the potty every time... talk about an awesome present for us!! We also used a permanent marker to draw a little smiley in the bottom of his potty in order to help with his aim, that helped a lot.

My daughter was born March 27th and she's been completely trained for a few weeks now. I started putting her on the toilet for poops when she was a year and that got her used to the whole toilet thing. I didn't use rewards, heard that they are actually detrimental as all kids get bored with rewards. I counted on her wanting to please me and it worked great. I didn't push it, just let her kind of tell me when she was ready. There were ups and downs. Then, one day she told me she had to pee, and I decided to go with it. She would wear a diaper in the mornings while we were out, but after her nap we would stay home and she would wear her big girl underwear. She had a few accidents here and there but within 3 days was totally done. She still wears a pull up to bed at night but most mornings she's completely dry which I am flabbergasted at, as she normally pees a lot at night. So, it went well!

have you tried to sit on the Toilet and bring his potty in as well. Sit on the toilet and then put him on his potty.Praise him and let him up for just a few seconds then sit him on it again and praise him again do this with him till he will sit down on it himself then praise him the whole time he is on the potty do that about 4 or 5 times then bring him out and the potty and out it where you will be able to see him. As soon as he does something on the potty give him a treat something he likes but don't get to often.If this does not work stop and give it some time. I would say 2weeks to a month, good luck

Hi again I had a thought into the "dont like to wear knickers or undies" saga and thought has anyone tried training pants? unlike the huggies etc version these are made of terry toweling and have extra padding in the groin area so that when they do a wee it will make them realise "oh i have done a wee" but wont leak out at bad as letting them run around with undies or nothing on

My son was born March 13, 2008 and we haven't started potty training yet...but we have a potty upstairs and one downstairs, and he knows what they are for! :o) But when he wakes up from nap or bedtime, he's still really wet so I don't think he's quite ready yet. I have the pull-ups all ready to go though; I think we'll try and see what happens by the end of the month =)
