Started TT DD on Saturday just gone. She is 37 months old today. So far it's been going relatively well - she is weeing without any issues or accidents (although we haven't been outside the house without nappies as yet) and for the past couple of days just takes herself off to the potty unannounced when she needs to do wee if there's noone in the room with her. No poos on the potty as yet, but one did "slip out" while she was out in the back yard the other night.
The issue for the past couple of days is that she wants to sit on the potty constantly! It was in the loungeroom on Tuesday, but I found that during the afternoon she just sat on it constantly. On Wednesday I moved it in to the toilet thinking that the relatively boring surroundings in there might spur her on to leave it and go and do something else in between uses, but although she is sitting on it less, she is still in there quite a lot.
Any suggestions for how I get her to leave it? At the moment all I can think of is to say "if nothing comes out in 5 minutes you have to get off and go and do something else and then come back if wees or poos are coming".
Also - any suggestions for first outings without nappies? I have some "training pants" for her which are towelling and a little bit absorbent. Perhaps I just put those on her and venture to the cafe down the road for a quick trip or do I just bite the bullet and go somewhere more adventurous and assume we'll spend three quarters of the time in the toilet?
Thanks in advance.
