My lil man is almost 3 and a half, he's confident and clever, yet can I get him to stop wetting himself...no! We can have an almost dry day if I am persistently putting him on the toilet every 40 mins or so, yet this has been for 5 months now, and I don't seem to be getting anywhere. We have tried the reward charts, we have tried taking away something (ie. no chocolate treat that evening), he's even told us himself that "Big Boys use the potty." We have had lots of discussions about it, even read all the stories, but we don't seem to be getting anywhere and it's starting to get me down. We have had the odd few days where he's been great, and we couldn't have praised him any more and he was so happy with that, yet a day later and back to square 1.
On the other hand, I can't fault him for going for a poo, it's never been an issue and he's always told us in plenty of time. Is there anybody else out there struggling with this? All my mum-pals are telling me how amazing their little ones are doing and I feel like we're going backwards! Any tips would be more than welcome...please!
Thanks in advance
