I only read the GF one, it was good to have read it - might be worth checking if your local library has a copy.
I got this one to read with C for a couple of months before which I think helped him understand
We PTed C (well, toilet trained, he went straight on the toilet from day 1) at 2y7.5m and he only had a handful of accidents and was dry at night within a week, so don't feel you have to rush it.

Thanks Deedee, I'll have a look at that book. Might also check out the library for GF.

I'll thinking same AR, but guessing with baby arriving in August here I've a bit of time and can hold on until the weather is warmer...I don't think O is ready yet

I've been thinking a lot about it what with TTC #2 and everything and I reckon I might hold out until a potential new baby is here (obviously within reason and assuming we conceive in the next few months!) I've heard that sometimes they can regress a little with the arrival of a new sibling so I wondered if perhaps it's worth waiting a few months? I do, however, know nothing about this stuff lol.

The GF book is good, but I'd agree it's probably best to borrow from library if possible, it's not something you'll refer to over time.
Its def worth a read though, I was surprised how good it was

L is 2 years 9 months and we started on Friday, and it's gone quite well so far so I'd advocate holding off. We just had the potty around for ages, and he'd actually been getting to it for #2's on and off for a while, but no interest in coming out of nappies until last week so we just left it.
F was 2 years 6 months when she told us she didn't want to wear nappies any more. L was 3 months old at the time, I'd been holding off doing it as I had heard about older ones regressing when the new one arrives, so I was going to wait a bit longer but she was clearly ready as I don't remember more than one or two accidents. A friend has the same gap between her children and wanted #1 out of nappies before #2 arrived. He wasn't wearing nappies but he was having so many accidents she says now it would have been easier if he was.
Then again I am lazy mummy so I would remember all the factors that suggest waiting until they effectively do it themselves is the easiest!
