23 month old wants to use potty/toilet but doesn't relax enough to go...help!


My gorgeous daughter keeps telling me she wants no nappy on or that she's done wee wee or poo. Usually she tells us after the event but she always likes to sit on toilet seat or potty to try anyway.

This evening she started making noises that she was pooing and told me wee wee....I took her upstairs and striped her down and she sat on toilet seat. She hadn't done the poo but couldn't go on the toilet either. She later went in her nappy before bed.

Every time she sits on the potty/toilet she seems tense but happy. Is there anything I can do to relax her and encourage her to actually wee or poo on it? So far she's never done anything actually in the potty/toilet....I have my biggest cheers stored up for her when she does.

Oh and if she's not in a nappy she just stands there and wees and tells me 'wet' or wee wee whilst doing it

My LO never gave a chance to poo- she would go to toilet fart and say- o thats it all done, then poo the pants!!!! a friend mentioned using bubbles as the action of them blowing helps to relax the muscles plus they all seem to love bubbles and it was a great distraction to allow her the time to sit and do a poo---- also its meant to be goods for their feet to be on the ground to poo so a step for toilet is good (though i have never used one)

i swear the bubbles were like a miracle

My LO and I sing together on the potty. We have a special potty song that I made up, and we will sing it together (I sing the lyrics, he sings "dada dada potty" lol - still young). Anyway, it takes the pressure and focus off. I never thought of bubbles, but he is definitely too young for it. Another thing that helps is, my LO and I always sit on the potty together. I will pee, and he will hear it and get more encouraged to go. That's how we started off with the potty in the first place. Now, he can go just fine without my help, but he still sings the potty song.
