When did you train your toddler?
Moss is 2 and a half I don't think he's ready yet but I certainly am. I don't want to rush him but though he'd have been ready by now. I'm due again in october and I'd love him to be out of nappies cause the thought of 3 nappies to change isn't exactly appealing. He does seem aware when he's going, holds himself when he pee's and goes into another room when he poo's. When outside and nappy free he is very impressed when he pees and stands and watches himself.
Any tips? Should I just try him and see how we get on for a day or 2?

Hi Caroline,Tom was 2 and 3 mths,he told me he wasn't ready,we got to playgroup and his little pal had started,when we got home he refused to put a nappy on!!!
First 2 days,he was having accidents,but kid you not by day 3 he cracked it,doesn't wear a nappy for naps either,only at night.
He didn't like me constantly asking if he needed a wee,just seemed to grasp it very quick,and I had resigned myself for a wet fortnight. Was ever so proud of him.
Why not buy some big boys undies,talk about it for a week then have a go-I'm glad I took the cue from him. What he didn't realise was his little pals mum and I had arranged to have a try together that week!!!!! She has twins and they too cracked it in a week!!!
No fun buying loads of nappies,I know my other little 1 is just 13mths!!!!!
I've saved loads! I would try hun,the worse that can happen is you go back to them.
Good luck hun x x

He starts playgroup at the end of August so maybe if he doesn't manage it before he'll be encouraged after. I was hoping to get it done and dusted before I'm too big too move, but thats well underway anyway lol. Think I'll make a plan to stay in for the best part of a week and try crack it, maybe starting at the weekend when hubby is here to help.
mummabe we've got an out'n'about double which is great and Moss rarely goes in it these days so think I'll leave it at that, if need be there's a wee footrest on the front that he can catch a lift with his wee brother and sister if he's tired.
Laura sounds like Jacks ready for me, asking to go is a huge deal, Moss shows no interest in the toilet and will only occassionally sit on the potty.
Thanks for all the advice

I love those larger 'fun' potties but they are quite big and as Jo said they use the toilet soon enough!
