Toilet training! What to do when they hold on?
Answered 2 years ago
DD is 3 in July. We’ve tried toilet training a few times in the last 6 months. She’ll tell me she needs to wee/poo, will sit on the potty/toilet but nothing will happen. She then holds on for a ridiculous amount of time until it hurts then cry. She doesn’t have accidents anywhere (i would prefer it if she did!).she can wear undies all day without any accidents & when she asks for a nappy will go straight away in the nappy and goes look mum I’m doing wee. I’ve tried giving it a break and trying again, bribery, sticker charts, we’ve read books and had lots of conversations about it. I’ve also tried getting rid of the nappies completely and saying they are gone but still with the same result. She knows wee goes in the potty and will happily tell me all about it and give it a go but nothing ever happens. I’d rather her have accidents Atleast then I could guide her to the potty! She also won’t wee outside, in the shower/bath or in the pool. We’ve tried lots of reassurance and no pressure
