As a lot of you know, Oscar has successfully had a wee in the toilet every night before his bath, with the aid of his Daddy, for several months. As this became part of his bedtime routine, we decided to get him to do it in the mornings and afternoons too, but it didn't quite work. Geoff and I were only doing it half-heartedly, often forgetting and Oscar was wearing pull-ups and wet it regardless.

I started work 2 months ago, and thought about tackling it then, but as Oscar's nightmares were so bad, and the three of us were not getting any sleep, I decided against it.

I had a letter from his soon-to-be nursery saying that he has been offered a place and starts in September, and suddenly realised he will be three in 2 months, and I'd like for him to be toilet trained by then as most kids are. I've been observing him lately, and he has always told me when he needs a wee, even though he is in his nappy. As the nightmares aren't so much of a problem this week, and as it was my day off, I decided today to take the plunge and let him go without a nappy from now on. So I took his nappy off this morning, threw it in the bin, sat Oscar on my lap and explained what he was to do if he needed the toilet. Instead of his nappies he proudly wore little boxers, and told me every single time he needed the loo, well in time for us to get him there. He only had 2 accidents all day. Once first thing, but I anticipated that. The second time was more my fault, as I was in the loo when he needed to go! :lol:

Getting him to do a poo was a little trickier. He was very reluctant to sit on his toilet seat, but eventually did and pretended to strain! Geoff filmed him whilst on the toilet doing this, it's hilarious! :lol: After almost an entire day of reluctance, Oscar started straining after dinner in the living room. I calmly explained that he was to do it on his Roary toilet seat, and he complied. He sat on the toilet seat, and after only a minute or two I heard it. I ran over and praised the hell out of him, as did his dad and he was sooo proud. He went to bed exclaiming about his achievement: "Oscar did a huge poo!" :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm so proud of him! I couldn't have asked for a better first day! After today, I'm confident that his nappies during the day are gone forever. It's an end of an era, but the beginning of a fantastic new one. :D <3

Well done Oscar! You will soon notice his night time nappies being dry too, then you won't be buying nappies any more!

Oscar can you encourage Ella to do the same please? She just would rather pee her pants than go in the loo.
Well done Oscar
