Ollie knows when he needs to go but no plans to potty train yet. Brandon was dry during the day by 18 months but I got nothing but grief from the health visitors as they said medically their bowels and bladder are not mature enough
With the next 2 I dont remember when they were fully trained but not until much later. Most ppl Ive spoken to wait until they are between 2 and a half and 3. When are you going away Samie? Bet she was really proud of herself, shes got such a cheeky smile :-)
Yeah she was super proud! I dont care what the hv say they make things up half the time lol dont quite understand the logic they say about most things....a lot isnt evidence based. Were not born to sit in wee and poo =o). I was reading children in Indonesia are trained from birth by their parents making a whistle type noise which by 9 months the kids knew it meant toilet so they are trained by 9 months!
I think the western world are influenced by brands so much that we believe when told they arent capable meaning we continue to buy their products for years.... just a thought!
In the 1950′s, 92% of children were potty trained by 18 months old. Today, roughly only about 4% of toddlers are potty trained by 18 months. In fact, only 60% are trained by 3 years old!
She has no pressure on her to do it so if we dont succeed then hey ho!
We fly out may 24th....its coming round so quick ahhhhh
Samie I just spent ages writing a reply and it crashed
Im sure she is capable. I agree the HVs dont know what they are talking about half the time. I think it was in Victorian times the toilet trained very early by hanging the babies over pots. I also saw a programme once where they leave the babies au naturel all the time and when they recognise the different faces the babies pull they know they are going to go so dangle them over the loo or grass or wherever they are. This group on the programme were having a picnic all randomly dangling their babies in mid air with things coming out of them was very amusing!!
If it was summer id leave her naked most of the day so we could spot the faces. Luckily with poos most of the time if her nappy is off she will go get it to be put on so we now take her to the toilet, but wee's are a little harder to spot....hanging the over pots sounds funny =o)
I dont think it will be easy because were not directly training just offering the toilet and putting her on it occasionally and hoping it will click!
Planning is coming along slowly but getting there =o)
That's great Samie. They say girls are easier than boys too. I couldn't imagine allister using toilet in like 2-3 months at Sophia's age just because I think it's hard when he can't communicate with me and tell me lol. X
