Hi
I am at my wits end with potty training my premmi. Born at 30 weeks at 1.8kg, he is now 4 years, 2 months.
The urine part went well, but he keeps soiling himself. I am out of ideas. Have tried posters, rewards, stickers, scolding and loooosing it totally... (which obviously did not work :-( )
My frustration levels is supremely high and I don't know how to help him.
Have been to the pediatrician and she says all is well... I should just hang in there.
Adding insult to injury he has been promoted to his next class at kindergarten on his age (his birthday is now in November - should have been January) ... thus putting him in a class with kids that is a year older than him .
HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What worked for your premmi?

That can actually be a fairly normal thing for any kid. I have friends who's kid was peeing in the toilet at 2... but still using a diaper to poop at 4. You just have to be patient. Keep encouraging him, but don't push it and don't scold/punish him. He'll get there.
