Dd is 26 months. She's been wanting to potty train for ages, but the birth of the new baby stopped progress for a while.
Anyway, now we seem stuck.
She hates wearing nappies, and takes them off at every opportunity when we're at home, but when we're out in the mornings she tends to forget them and keeps them on. But the moment she's peed or pooped, she tells me and wants it changed - and if I'm not fast enough, she's whipped it off and is running around, which is fine if it's a wet one, but if she's pooped, it can be messy.
I know all these things are good signs, but when I ask if she wants to sit on the potty, she either says no, or sits for two seconds then is off to play again. We did have one pee in the potty a few weeks ago, but no success since then.
I"ve held off on pull-ups as I'd read so many negative things about them, but I wonder if they'd be an answer? She likes to wear underwear, but it doesnt stop her peeing or pooping whenever she needs to go. However, she is upset by accidents and somewhat embarrassed.
So any advice is welcome, I'm finding it exhausting as I can't always keep an eye on her as (like this morning) I was nursing the baby when she needed a change, and before I got there, the nappy was off and she was running around the house naked, poop flying everywhere. Sorry for being so graphic.
: Dh keeps trying to insist she puts on a nappy but I think this makes it worse, she waits for him to leave the room and takes it off again.
Incidentally, a lot of this is tied up to being independent. She can dress and undress herself completely now and never wants help for anything, let alone an adult doing her nappy. On the occasions she will wear one, she insists on putting it on herself and gets furious if I try to help. I'm tired and out of ideas........
