Hi All, my indentical twin girls are 2 years and 4 months and I have been trying to potty train for the last year. Had success on the 29th of Dec last year as Julia did a wee wee in the potty while visiting grandma and grandad. However nothing since. Have been trying.
It is very hard with the 2 of them, but keen to keep going as the weather here in Katoomba, NSW, Australia is warm and good for wearing just a nappy, so that is very good for potty training. Last year it was cold and currently we have had mostly wet weather so not ideal, but at least it is warm.
Just wanted to pick anyone's brain or experience with potty training twins and how they did it. The girls are just going through the motions like they have been for months now, wanting to sit on the potty and then they say, all done. Ask for the toliet paper, put it in the toliet and then want their hands washed. So I go along with it as you never know.
Also frightened of accidents and being out and about without access to a toliet.
So I think they have been ready for a while and wanting to do it, but not sure if it them stopping themselves or just me or the complexities of having 2 and a small house and bathroom. Plus a very cold year that stopped the process.
Any advice would be appreciated. I would like to have them potty trained before they are 3 as they need to be well on their way before then as this is when pre-school starts.
Hope all you lovely ladies are well.
