anything specific your having troubles with? my son was about 2 when i started than i stopped as he was lazy and wasnt quite ready now hes just over 3 and trained although there are still accident. i found it most difficult to have him do numer 2s on the toilet he said he was scared but after he did all over himself as he had just jocks on he didnt want to do it again so i would say melissa said undies all the time you need to alliminate nappies otherwise he will continue to use them as hes 3 he knows what it means!!! i also found daddy training him as much as he can helped alot as my son felt quite proud when he could do it like daddy : ) Good luck

when you make the shift....dont go back. it confuses kids when you are not consistant. I put my son into underwear all day and pullups at night, for the first week. then underwear all the time. He will have accidents, a lot of them. But being constant helps. If you give him a drink wait a half hour them make him try to pee, if he does ask him again in an hour, and if not then ask him in 15 min. thats what we did with my boys. Keep on him, and they will go. Good Luck

hi my daughter is 3 in june and is dry.

its really hard work i think you have to really be ready yourself aswell as little man, because its a real challenge.

i just let mai have no bottoms on other that pants, a potty upstairs,a potty downstairs, and loadsa spare clothes and carpet cleaner.

i dont think we left the house for 2 weeks, i asked her every 10 mins if she wanted a weewee. and everytime i went t the toilet i put her on after.

if she did a wee i gave her a little treat, if she did a poo i gave her 2.

i did one solid week of days and then went straight onto nights.

i take her to the toilet everynight at 10pm, and shes had about 10 accidents in 6 months. so not too bad. she only has 5ml of milk before bed though.

hope this helps x
