Anyone's 3 year old NOT potty trained

My DD turned 3 in September. We have tried 3 times to potty train her. We tried the 3 day training and didn't work. She knows the whole concept......knows what its for, always comes with me and will sit but just will not go. My DH said not to stress about it; but I feel like should be in underwear by now. Also completely think its a control thing.

Re: Anyone's 3 year old NOT potty trained

My boys were 3.5 and 3 years 10 months when they trained.

I tried earlier, and nothing worked. Something just clicked in them, and they wanted to do it. Sometimes it is peer pressure that motivates them, or, they want to be grown up and clean.

I liked the Potty Power DVD.

Re: Anyone's 3 year old NOT potty trained

My twins just turned 3 2 weeks ago and are not trained. I have tried half assed a few times but I can't commit to fully trying yet. We had a rough year and 2 cross country moves in 10 months so I'm waiting unti we all feel more settled. I am upset though. i feel they're overdue especially DD.

Anyone's 3 year old NOT potty trained

My twins turned 3 in September. My daughter has been trained for probably close to 2 months now. My son has absolutely no interest in even trying. Won't sit on the potty or anything. At the rate he's going I think my 18 month old will be trained before him. Im not pushing it though because I think that will discourage him even more.

Re: Anyone's 3 year old NOT potty trained

My youngest is almost 3.5 & not completely trained. He will go pee pee here & there but not consistently. My ped told me its not uncommon & you can't force it or you could face possible regression.

Re: Anyone's 3 year old NOT potty trained

my 3.3 year old is not trained yet. he gets it & has done both pee & poop in the potty before, but has no interest in doing it all the time.

im going to try the 3 day method in february & hope for the best... if that doesnt work, were having our 2nd baby in april so i guess i will have to wait & see what happens after that to try again

good luck!! your not alone!!

Re: Anyone's 3 year old NOT potty trained

Dis wasn't fully trained until 3.5. It was frustrating because we would take one step forward, two steps back for a while. But they it finally clicked.

Anyone's 3 year old NOT potty trained

My twins just turned 3 on 12/2 and they are not even close to potty trained. They have no interest in the potty. I am quitting my job and will be a FTSAHM come February 1st so I figure I can work more with them then, but it's quite frustrating. They scream every time we go near the potty.

Re: Anyone's 3 year old NOT potty trained

The "diaper fairy" came and took all of DS diapers on his 3rd birthday in early December. That sort of forced him into trying and he has been going peepee on the potty ever since - if he has to poop, he asks for a pull-up. Before that, he had ZERO interest and would cry when we tried. We also had a reward system every time he went during the first week or so.

Many kids aren't potty trained until 3.5-4, but if you want to get rid of the diapers, the "diaper fairy" worked like a charm here!!

My DD was trained at 3.5. I never even attempted it before then, and it was a super easy process for both of us. Little to no accidents! She was just ready.

Re: Anyone's 3 year old NOT potty trained

don't stress, don't push, its totally a control thing, give her back the control


mine was funny he'd only go on certain potties. He loved his daycare potty, they had tiny ceramic toilets, he'd only go pee and poop in there. At home I'd ask him, do you want a diaper, or will you wear underwear and use the potty to pee.

He chose diaper at home, underwear for daycare. At around 3.5 something clicked and he didn't want diapers anymore anywhere.

Re: Anyone's 3 year old NOT potty trained

My oldest didn't train until 3.5 she wanted to but wasn't ready. Ped said she was small and just not physically ready. She tried hard but had lots of pee accidents. She said she was ready one day and trained in 2 days. Night trained in less than a week. My younger was trained at 26 months. I learned they will do it when they were ready. Not necessarily when you want them too. My oldest tried many times. She did well day one, day 2 had a few accidents more on day 3 then would get upset and give up. She just got it one day.

Re: Anyone's 3 year old NOT potty trained

My twin boys turned 3 in August and are nowhere near trained. We have tried everything. They know what the potty is for and will use it whenever they feel like getting some candy but other than that nothing. When I ask them to go, they actually tell me, "No thanks mommy, ill just go in my diaper." When I try and force them to sit they scream and cry. Sorry I have no advice just wanted to say you arent alone.

Re: Anyone's 3 year old NOT potty trained

DD is a pro with pee...wakes up dry, no accidents ever. But I am convinced she will be shitting her pants until High School.
I am at a loss with that one. Just a total loss...

Re: Anyone's 3 year old NOT potty trained

My just about 3 year old dd has been trained since 2.5 her twin brother on the other hand...is clueless! He pees when I tell him to but will not poop on the potty. The other night they were running around naked after their bath and he pooped next to the Christmas tree. He was so proud too..."look mommy I don't go poopy in my diaper"
Clearly he is not ready!!!

My DS is almost the opposite. He will poop in the potty (not all the time) but never tells us when he has to pee so that's always in his pull-up. He still wakes up completely soaked every morning too, so I think he's just not ready still. He's 3y3m.

Anyone's 3 year old NOT potty trained

My DS had no interest in training. We tried once and it was a disaster so I gave up. I knew he could do it, but he didn't want to. So, every day when he woke up and before bed I'd ask if he wanted to go on the potty and if he said no, I just told him ok maybe later or maybe tomorrow. One morning, when he was 3.5, he woke up and said he wanted to go on the potty and that was it - instantly trained! So easy and stress free for all of us. Pee and poop, no accidents day or night - it was just done. As my ped said, no one goes to high school in a diaper - he'll do it when he's ready. BTW, I don't believe in "training" per se - if you have to train them, they're not ready. You show them how to do it and they will do it when they are physically and emotionally ready. JMO.

My DS is 3 1/2 and so NOT trained. This thread was such a relief to me. I thought I was the only one. He has no interest and we have been trying for months. My biggest problem is school. If he has an accident in his pull ups they call us to change him. Sometimes it's twice in a session. What are you guys doing about school and training?

Luckily her school is a full time daycare so they will change them if they have accidents.
Like I said- she pees like a pro, poop is the issue. She usually poops at home though so she only had a handful of accidents in her panties at school- and they will change her into clean underwear that I keep in her cubby.

Re: Anyone's 3 year old NOT potty trained

DS turned 3 in August and he has no interest at all. He says it's "too loud" Chat Icon ... and it's not the flush he thinks it too loud because if he sees us on the toilet, he always wants to flush.

I don't want to force it because I don't want it to be traumatic, but at the same time, we want him in school in Sept and I'm afraid that if he's not trained he won't be able to go (and I realize that a lot can happen between now and Sept). UGH!
