Potty training

My son will be 3 on the 18 September 2009, and he is still in nappies, is this a concern. He goes to the toilet but will not do a stool.

This is not an urgent problem at present but your son does need to make progress with his potty training. Please read more about potty training on our forum.

My son is turning 3 in Oct, he was wearing nappies until this past weekend. All of a sudden he is refusing to wear nappies. He was always very adamant not to sit on the toilet. It shows me he is mentally ready to take the step He tells me he is a big boy now.I think each child will do the potty training in own time. We have alot of mishaps,but I am trying to keep sense of humour.........Persevere, eventually we will all get there !!! Good luck

Hi Cherise,

My son will be 3 on the 5th of September he still wears nappies at night and only recently stopped wearing nappies in the day. He still has mishaps but they do come right, just persevere.
