So two questions about TT..

We're on day 5 of TT our 26mth old DD and she is doing wonderfully, and now takes herself to the potty without me asking her to do so or reminding her. Only problem is she just sits straight on the pot without taking her knickers off first. She still finds it a bit difficult getting them on and off herself but either way we reward her for taking herself to the potty and putting her wee in it. Should we be rewarding her for it even though she hasn't taken her undies off?

Also any tips on how to work on the undie issue would be great!


Second question is.. How and when did you drop your reward system if you used one? DD currently gets one sticker per wee & poo on the pot. I'm not in a hurry to drop the stickers as I love seeing her excitement and enthusiasm but there has to be an end somewhere. How long after seeing success did you stop?

I never really did the reward system, but told her after a week of no accidents we'd go shopping and she could pick out a "big girl toy" which seemed to be motivation enough for her.

Sounds like she is doing really well!

One day I 'forgot' DD's reward and she didn't notice. I figured it was safe to stop then.

I think we will do this after a week of being dry. Maybe get her some new books since she's a book freak at the moment.

We may just forget in a week or so and see how we go! I guess if she's still getting praise from us she'll be happy.
