My daughter will be three when summer arrives and so i want to start toilet training but i am also having a baby at the same time. I know they say you shouldn't try and do both at the same time but i don't want to wait till the next summer because she would be off to kindy and still in nappies. Does anyone have any good ideas as to how i can do both? Also I catch buses everywhere and was wondering what to do if my child needs the toilet while catching a bus? Any ideas would be of great help!

thanks heaps. I am due in january which is summer. School holidays are coming up so someone suggested i start her then simply because the bus won't be a problem until the other one goes back to school. I also had a suggestion to let her run around for a little while naked so i am doing that for about 1hr after her bath each night she loves it LOL. I have also been talking alot to her about it and how she will be able to pretty nickers and be such a big girl. She seems interested and has started telling me when she's done something and sometimes has asked to go to the toilet but then can't do anything and five minutes after the nappy goes on she does one so i think she is pretty much ready thanks for all your advise.

I'm pregnant now. Due in December. We've slowly been potty training. My son regressed about the time we found out I was pregnant. However, start now, be prepared for a regress when she sees the diapers again. She may not, but be prepared. Also be consistant...even when you have the new baby. It will be tough. It's hard on us here because i still have to remember to remind him sometimes to go. I do agree though start now, it may be a slow process but start now. Weather you get on the bus or not when you leave the house she needs to go potty and when you arrive. It will probably help whenever you go out.

when summer arrives? when is summer where u live? (its half way threw summer in canada right now). when r u due? id say start potty training now. my daughter is 20 months and im going to start potty training soon i also have a book on potty training and it says the best time to start is between 18 to 22 months of age. also as for the bus thing always make sure ur daugher pees before u leave the house so that she doesnt need to pee on the bus.
