Tiny accidents (Toilet Training)

DS is going really well with toilet training.

He is doing all poos in his potty and most pees. He is also using the toilet at daycare. Till he got the hang of it I had been using pullups. He is even handling going out and using public toilets.

Now I have switched him into cloth undies (I am using non waterproof, but slightly padded ones), I have noticed he is not going to the toilet/potty tiny pees, I guess dribbles would be the right word for them sick.gif . It isn't enough to soak the undies, just leave a tiny wetpatch.

Should I just ignore it and he'll adjust since it isn't being wicked away anymore?

I have tried reminding him to go more frequently but he just gets angry and frustrated and refuses anyway. He is good at getting up and going when he is in the middle of playing/watching something so I don't want to push it too much.

Ideally I guess he would learn to hold the little bits until he has a bit of a fuller bladder.

Anyone else had this issue?

DD often has a tiny drop. It is like she has had a little release then realised she has needed to go and rushes to the toilet.

Oh phew. Mine is doing this too. It's been WEEKS and he's still having these few-drop accidents, and it's enough to require a couple of undies changes a day (when he's not in the padded ones) - probably not COMPLETELY necessary but if he notices it's wet then he wants to change.

I remember a friend of mine having this issue with her son I think - I'm hoping she sees this and weighs in, otherwise I'll ask her next time I see her.

It is frustrating and I thought it would have stopped by now, so I'd love to hear whether this is normal and if so, how long it takes to go!

DD is three next month and we have been without undies since 2.75yrs.

My boys at 3.25 yrs when they TT never did this.

Just an update on this.

The dribbles have stopped and he has even night trained himself. No accidents in 10 days and that has included several outings where I expected it.
