Hi ... I am desperatly after some help or advice.
My son will be 4 in August and refuses to toilet train at all. Will not wee or poo in a toilet. Will not even try.
I have tried alot of things but nothing works. We have tried bribes, musical potty, wee man. Daddy has taken him to the toilet unsuccesfully. He just refuses to even try.
I now feel like it has to be done. He is too old to be in nappies and needs to be trained. It is embarrasing and frustrating.
I have gone to the extent of having him at home in undies for a whole week. Only putting him in nappies for his day sleep and at night. He will hold his wee and poo until he is in a night nappy. My next step is going cold turkey and missing his sleeps all together so he hasn't got the opportunity to wait for his nappy. I have even had an occassion where he has held both wee and poo untl 6 pm (after not weeing all day) and i finally gave in and put him in a nappy. so I know he has bladder control.
Please help me ... I just don't know where to go next. Is holding out on nappies all together the wrong thing to do?
