So DD has finally done two weeks in the toilet in the last 2 days. Prior to that she would ask to go to the toilet but just sit there and then say that she was finished after about 10 seconds.
So having no idea how this toilet training business works what now?
Do I just go straight to undies or let her ease into it?
I work full time and she is at daycare Monday to Friday and of the 7th of December I am no longer working, should I just wait until then and then just go for it?
ETA: DD is 3 in January.

Wait until you finish work. When my DDs started, I would put them in undies, stay home for the day and put them on the toilet every hour. I gave them one smartie for a wee, 5 or more smarties for a poo. We used the potty. I then used pull-ups for outings for a few weeks. DD1 took 2 weeks before she would take herself to the toilet, DD2 about 1 week. There were very few accidents. I continued to use nappies for sleep time.
Hope that helps!!

Slow and steady.
It sounds like she's doing well and is giving you signs that she's ready. Just keep putting her on the toilet and encouraging her with praise for now. Also let daycare know what you are doing so they can also ask her but tell them not to push it either.
Then, when you have finished work buy some pretty undies or character ones and add lots of praise. it is always easier to have success in the warmer weather so you have great timing.
For what it's worth, none of my kids used a potty at all. We had one of those little toilet steps with a smaller seat and they all went straight to that. It meant that there was no transition from potty to toilet later on.

Daycare have been really good, DD told the she wants to do a wee, but until yesterday she would just sit on the toilet and do nothing. Same as what she would do at home.
Yesterday's timing was good as I picked her up a little earlier than usual and was there when the carer came out and said that she had just done a wee. Lets just say there was lots of jumping up and down, praise, high fives and excitement from all of us. DD was rewarded with two stamps.
When she did one at home today, she then asked for two stamps, I dont have any so I drew two flowers on her hand, which she was more than happy with. I must pick p some stamps for her.
We have the little toilet seat insert, as she doesn't like the potty and a step for the toilet.
