One word to describe our first two days of potty training: Disaster

The boy totally refuses to sit in the potty, in fact we have 3 different potties, a trainer seat, a portable potty, you name it, we have it and we tried them all.

We tried bribing him with stickers, cookies, chocolate and he still won’t sit or contemplate doing it. By the end of the weekend and after endless incidents we were all exhausted and very stressed.

Nursery are taking over for the week now, they keep saying it’s ok and they will give it a go, but to be honest I am not very confident. Daddy is ready to throw the towel already, aren’t men useless?, but I really think we need to keep at it for a few weeks before giving up.

People keep telling he has to be ready. I think he is ready, he is 3 and I think he is aware, but he is stubborn and also a bit lazy, he keeps saying he is a baby and wants to keep wearing nappies, of course we keep telling him he is a big boy and big boys don’t wear nappies

I have done this before with my other son, but I don’t remember it being so difficult. I just hope we are just having a bad start and things will improve towards the end of the week.

Please tell me I am not the only one that has had a disastrous first few days.

This weekend I will mainly be potty training……

My 5 year old was potty trained a couple of months after he was 2, it was easy, he was interested and we managed to do it after a couple of weeks.

I now think it’s time to start with my 3 year old, the only problem is that even though he knows he is going to do a poo, and he can let us know in advance , he will not sit in the toilet, or potty, or trainer seat..  He just refuses

I have told him I will be giving him stickers and little treat whenever he uses the potty but he just doesn’t want to talk about the subject… he says he is a baby and not a big boy..
