Hi, I'm starting to worry about my daughter. She turned 3 end of June and about 1 month before, she did her first wee on the potty. We praised her, showed her it goes down the toilet and that we flush it away and said goodbye wee wee.
A week later we tried potty training, for 2 and a half days. It didn't go to plan, she ended up with runny poo and got scared. Refused to sit on the potty and we had the same problem spontaneously offering the potty for 2 months afterwards. This weekend, it has been 2 months and with the summer holidays we thought it would be a good time to do it again, as she goes to two nurseries and we thought there's not enough consistency to potty train during school term time. Day 1, we managed to finally get her to sit on the potty with nothing on, huge progress! Two days later she's still holding her wee and poo, and only doing wee on the potty if she's sat on it but still gets up with it still dribbling out, and she runs away crying and saying she doesn't like it. We try to tell her that she can put wee wee in the potty, but she's not having any of it. It's been dribbling down her leg for 2 hours or more constantly wetting every pair of pants, making a total of 17 pairs of pants wet in 1 day.
Is this normal for a 3 year old not to be interested? Or is there something quite not right with her development? She also isn't listening to us or taking in anything we say, she is just running away all the time and ignoring us playing with her toys. I am yet to meet another 3 year old to doesn't absorb what an adult says to them.
Any advice and your experiences are very welvone! We are becoming concerned now.
