  • Not sure if I can help especially as I havent ventured out without my son in a nappy yet, but with regards to the toilet issue...... My son did that a bit for a couple of weeks but we've now had a few poos in the toilet. The first couple of times he would want to get off after only a couple of minutes, and I let him. Then I started saying, no a bit longer please. I also sat on the floor by him and sang nursery rhymes with him and also tried blowing on his face and getting him to copy me, as I'd heard that if they blow bubbles they can't hold anything in. Then the more times he wee'd or poo'd the more he wanted to.

    Give it time, I'm sure your daughter will do it in her own time. My son is also 2 1/2 and only started to get potty training properly the last few weeks!
