We are day 4 into TT.

DS is happy to use the potty, but is not recognising when he needs to go.

So he will start a wee, stop, run to the potty and finish the wee there, but is not recognising the feeling that he needs to go before he starts weeing.  How do I explain to him that he needs to understand before he starts to wee?  Or is it just something that with time he will learn.

Poos he has done one on the potty, but the rest are on the floor.

He comes and tells me straight away, and I again explain he needs to try to do it in the potty, but he obviously is again not recognising the need to go before he goes.

Any advice or tips on the above please?

Thankyou original.gif

The good news is that it will happen.

The bad news is that it takes time.  I would say it was at about the 3rd week that things finally clicked for DD (but she was only about 18 months old). 2 of my children got poo right from the beginning, but DS1 had been dry and asking for about 4 weeks before he got his first poo in the potty. He never did one anywhere else after that though.

Im TTing my 3rd son at the moment. Based on how this is going, and training my DS1 and DS2, I think it just 'clicks' at some point, and they understand the urge. The first day we had a lot of accidents, but now my DS3 seems to get when he needs to go and 9/10 he can get there. Poos are a different matter, he is not keen for the potty for them, hoping that part clicks in soon!!

Id just stick at it, he will get used to the sensation of needing to go, and will get better at getting there in time. I am not sure there is much you can do, other than just talking to him about it and encouraging him.

Good luck original.gif
