Toilet training - Holding on!!

Jodie - posted on 01/16/2011 ( 1 mom has responded )




Hi, my daughter is 2 and a half and has been wearing undies for neraly a month. For the last few weeks she has been holding on and refusing to wee anywhere but home. I have taken her potty out but it seems to make no difference. She goes to childcare one day a week and will hold her wees ALL day! She never has accidents and has great control and asks to go home to wee but this is not practical and it is not good for her to hold on for so long. Any suggestions please?

Maybe you could try taking her to the same public place all the time? To try to go to the bathroom somewhere other than home? Maybe if it's an unfamiliar issue, try taking the same toy out, or even maybe bringing along with you her own toilet paper (like those travel wipes they make for older kids i forget the name but they're in a purple box and I think there's a frog on them?) Maybe if she has some control over what she uses in the bathroom she won't mind using strange bathrooms? Or take sanitizer along so she washes her hands the same way too...I hope I helped a little :)
