no its pretty much easy just keep taking him 2 the loo every 30minutes 2 get the hang of it and let him get used 2 it by sitting on it 1st then hell realise the difference it should take u a week 2 do this

my son is 28 months and he more or less told me,in the respect that he took his own nappy off. i put the potty in which ever room i was in and just put pants on him,he would start to go then i would put him on the potty.about every 15mins i would say to him do you need a wee wee or poo poo.after afew days he started to pick up wot i meant by wee wee and poopoo.when i went to the bathroom i would also ask him then aswell..3 months on he tells me when he wants to go and i just help him....he wears no nappy in the day,just a pull up at nite......but we havent started nite time yet..if need anymore info please ask...xxx good luck....if u do start make sure pants only in the day no nappys.as i found this was sending mixed messages to him....xx
