    Unhappy Help

    My son is 24 months old & displays all the signs of being ready to potty train...but he refuses to sit on the big potty...

    Like scr child...

    IF i even mention the potty to him he say no...I've being trying to ask him why he' scared of the potty & he always tells me that there is water inside...I'm guessing he's scared of the flush....

    I don't want to rush him & put any pressure on him...just wondering will my son ever be potty trained....

    The daipers barely fit him any more....

    Suggestions:

    1) Get him used to using a small pot that he can sit on the floor and use

    2) Let him straddle the toilet (facing the cistern) to pee or poo. He can use his hands to balance and that might give him a better sense of control over the situation.

    3) Hold him in your arms (your arms around his chest) or have him stand on a stool to pee into the toilet.

    Good luck!

    Rads,

    He's still young. I tried to potty train D shortly after his 2nd bday and he wasn't interested. We tried again a few months later, he would scream everytime I showed him a brief and insisted on wearing a diaper. So we left him and tried again at 2 yrs 8 mths whe he was home for Easter break. Within 2 weeks he was potty trained.

    Rani-
    I plan to do the same with my son, he is 2 years and 7 months and has just started showing signs of "readiness". He goes to a kindy and is away from home on most days so I plan to wait till summer break so that we have 1-2 weeks of training only.

    My son is 3.5 and totally P.T trained during the day and has been for nearly a year but still wets at night. I asked his Doc and he said if he is a sound sleeper it might take quite awhile for him to learn. Any ideas how to get him to wake at night to wee? We already limit fluids in the afternoon/evening, and praise him in the am for drier Pull Ups, any other ideas?

    Thanks

    I'd like to ask the same question as Loon's, since my daughter is 4.5 yrs and wearing Pampers pull-ups XL. I wake her up every night to the toilet before I sleep but she still wets her pull-up in the morning, because she sleeps very sound. And Pamper's has recently reduced it's 32 package to 24, but keeps the same price.

    My daughter was like this for some years. Our paed. said in some kids it takes a while for the hormone that makes your body hold in pee at night to start being secreted from the brain.

    What we did was:

    1) Stop fluid in-take w/in one hour of bedtime (at that point she went to bed at about 7:30pm)

    2) Every night before we went to bed (~10:30 or 11:00) we would get her out of bed, take her to the toilet for a pee-pee and then put her back in bed.

    We did this for about 3 years, maybe more.

    My daughter is nearly 3 and has went from nappies to the big toilet (by passing the potty), but still asks for a nappy to poo. I know she can poo on the big toilet because she has done so on a few occasions, but it seems like she hasn't got the patience to sit on the toilet.

    I'm I right in thinking that this is just a passing phase that she will grow out of?
