    We are in the same situation!! Our daughter is happy to do poo poo's in the toilet - no accidents to date (One week) but she hasnt once managed to do a wee in the loo.

    Like your little one Lorraine, she holds her wee in for ages just to avoid doing a wee in the loo!!! I am so scared that she will get bladder problems if she continues to do this! The thing is though, i have tried to put her back in nappies and she screems the place down (so I am sure she is ready)!

    Oh hec - what to do!

    lol - the trials and tribulations of being a parent!

    when my brother was night training his son, he told him that if he had a dry nappy in the morning 3 days in a row he would buy him his favourite power ranger toy.

    the first three days he was dry. has been dry ever since.

    i wonder if something like that would work. or a star chart. when he has 3 stars, he gets a treat.

    (don't know if it will work, but it's an idea)

    I've heard so many different ways of toilet training. Just wonder whether you let your toddler wear just underpants whilst going out or not (presume you still bring your child out during toilet training period). It will be quite messy if accidents happen..

    which potty trainer brand do you guys use? some midwives has suggested "training" babies at a young age like a few months old.. like just holding them over a potty thing... has anyone tried this at all? My daughter is now 7 months old and I bought the Combi Toilet Trainer thing.. I bought it early because of the step up stool that I am now planning to use when I bathe her so it's not so hard on my back and so I will get my money's worth =) I don't think I will start potty training until much later... when is a good age to start? How do you know when she's ready?

    Hi! I trained my son 8 mths now to poopoo on the potty since last month. Everytime I caught him making the sign, immediately I will let him sit on his potty or 30 mins after his meal, I will just let him sit for at least 10 mins. Lucky for me, the technique did work until now. I didn't buy any expensive potty trainer brand nor books. I simply bought a potty from the market w/ a cover/ lid with it. My son seems to get used to it. However, I am afraid that he is so used to poopoo on his potty that whenever we go out the wholeday, he won't poopoo on his diaper until we get home.

    Does anybody has this experience before?

    Cheers, Adeline.

    sorry, but i subscribe to the belief that although your son poos in the toilet, he's NOT trained. YOU are.

    trained means that he can control his movements and an 8 month old child doesn NOT have this capability.

    Carang, from your comment it seems that perhaps you would find it difficult to praise? Or perhaps I sense some envy there?
    Credit where credit is due, if Adeline and her little man have got communication (or timing) co-ordinated or clearly understood, then congratulations I say.
    Each child is different, just as we all different as parents.

    i do not find it difficult to praise when something has been accomplished.


    i was merely stating what I CONSIDER to be "toilet trained"
