We're nowhere near potty training yet but I'd just like to know how old your child was when they potty trained as I don't know whether it's a myth or not but I've been told they potty train early if they're in cloth nappies. Is that true?
Well my LO was dry during the day at almost exactly 2 years old I think and dry at nights a couple of months later. She was ready a few months earlier but I was heavily pregnant so we kept her in nappies for a while. By ready, I mean that she knew when she was doing a wee and when she was just about to do one so she was 'trainable'. She was happy in nappies, I wouldn't have kept her in them if she wasn't! I actually would do the same again with my second LO as she was so quick to get it, I think waiting until she was practically doing it herself rather than just trainable really helped make it easy for her.
I have heard that LOs train earlier in cloth, but also that girls are earlier than boys. I think the average age 2.5 years old, so that makes sense to me.
Hollie is poyptty training atm, she is really good wit Poop's she knows when she wants to go and shows us by saying poo and pressing her belly. She will also sit on the potty eatherwoth or with out a nappy to do a poo. She dosen't get the weeing but atm, but she is 14 months old, so i dont really expect her to.
my son is almost 31months wears cloth but no where ready for potty training doesn't tell me when he has done a wee or whether his nappy is wet some times tells me when he has done a poo but he doesn't usually! Will some times sit on potty. Going to try over summer
My daughter was actually out of nappies daytime at 13 months, but only because she always wee'd on the potty if I put her on it, and as she hated being wet, I just pottied her regularly. She was asking for the potty by 18 months though, and dry at night at almost the same time. The boys were a bit later, but both were dry day and night at around 2 years.
