Lol charley does this. As soon as his nappies off he crawls straight to the loo, stands up then wee's over my floor! Lol
Someone actually told me to start putting him on a potty now but I'm sure 10 months is far to young!
Maybe put a potty in the bathroom and see if he will go near it x.

I rather doubt that he will be out of nappies before he is 3 as he doesn't mind being wet or dirty, but am beginning to get the clue that he is about to pee.... so was beginning to wonder about getting a potty for downstairs... however I wasn't expecting him to do that!

I'm personally going to wait until Odhrán is telling me if he needs to go, wanting to go to the bathroom etc.. My sister potty trained my nephew when he was about 2 and a bit, and he still wets himself and he's almost 4.. It has really put me off so I'm waiting, definitely

For your LO I would put a potty in the bathroom like Chaz said and see if he shows any interest, there are also some potty training story books which might help xx

I got a potty a few wks before I started training then set aside a wk in my dairy to totally stay in the house monty had just gone 2 and dolly was 21 months I stayed in for a full wk and once the nappy was off it never went back on, even for bed.
It was like training a puppy if they started to wee on the floor I picked them up and sat the on the potty in midflow .
First few days they were naked next few day pants and knickers on then after the wk taking them out with clothes on.
They both had one or two accidents when there clothes went back on but only a few,
I really think when you decide to do it do it fully the day I took the nappy off them they never wore one again and I had two children dry day and night after 2 wks good luck xxxx

Lanny that's fab, my sister is at her wits end.. C is almost 4 and is even pooing himself when he's naked from the waist down, she is really at a point where she doesn't know what to do, he starts nursery in 2 weeks and they won't keep him if he keeps doing it xx

I did simular to Lanny with mine, mine were all aged 2 and then I started , if your not sure about doing it in house, try the summer after they are 2 as easier to be naked and garden for mess etc. I actually had more trouble with one of mine , they didn't have any interest in sitting on potty and weeing, could understand that was what it was for! and so did sweets in the end (can't remember which child it was), bad mummy I know but it really kick started it and I only had to give sweets as reward for a week! they forgot about them , but that connection with reward for wee and potty had been made then.


I tried those pullup pants once , and they were rubbish , my kids couldn't feel wet and they just confused them.
I would make sure you have about 20 pairs of pants before you start, as you will never turn around the washing !!

Ive started saying poo poo several times , when Devon is clearly doing a poo, now , hes only 8 mths, but hope to start him making a connection with the words poo poo and what he is doing - may help , I'm not sure

Kiera Leigh is 3 and she is still in nappies at bed time but not through the day.
I started her at about 18months ish as my mum was pushing me to do it and it knocked kieras confidence so i stopped and then started when she was 2 and half and she got it straight away She still has the occational accident and has got a fear of pooing anywhere accept her nappy but we have just ignored it and not made a big fuse about it and now she is loads better You will know when your child is ready and if u find it just doesnt work leave it awhile and try again.
