If you have any trouble with the potty, do what we did and go straight to the toilet. Cheeky Aaron though, whenever there was TV on that he did not want to miss, he would do it in the potty (even though we were not using it) rather than leave the room and miss a bit of the TV show LOL.
Also, we never used pull ups during day, even if out for the day (only at night and still) so that he experienced getting wet. Only happened a couple of times and now he always asks for the loo. It did mean we stayed in for nearly a week during training though.
12/01/2014 at 11:09 am
thanks honey, i might try that, he is beginning to get it although just when i think he has it goes wrong!

Uh oh! Hope it’s going well – I remember staying in for a week with Curly Girl and tackling it all in one go but I’m not sure what to do this time around. Perhaps I’ll put it off for a bit until I’m ready for all this again!

12/01/2014 at 9:36 pm
he picked this potty himself .. most expensive in the shop but he was insistent! we just crack one thing and then fail at something else x

Ah, the joys! Hope it’s going okay xx
13/01/2014 at 8:56 am
we think we have cracked it only to find we havent! lol
13/01/2014 at 11:16 am
good luck! we had a surprisingly easy ride with potty training, a couple of mishaps but to be expected. i think the key thing is to wait until they are completely ready. we also found having a potette with us at all times was essential. they are fantastic!
13/01/2014 at 11:21 am
thanks honey, we tried him a few months back but was so not ready. this time he has asked for pants and potty but he just doesnt like giving up his wee! lol
