My 18 month old has been using the toilet since he was 14 months, we started because we noticed that he was starting to control when he weed. We started putting him on the toilet and he would instantly wee or poo, and we would often have accident free days. But after a few months he started screaming every time we put him on the toilet, so we thought he may have wanted some independence so purchased a potty so he could take himself. It took a few weeks for him to understand how to use the potty, and he will wee and poo on the potty if put on it, but he will not take himself. Does anyone have any ideas of how we can encourage our toddler to go to the potty himself when he needs to go?
