Took me FOREVER to get my son FULLY potty trained! He would go at home, but not with my MIL (who takes care of him). Honestly, I heard from everyone that boys take the longest and that they will do it when they're ready. I started training my son at 2 1/2 as well and I found that to be too early. He wasn't fully potty trained until he was 3 1/2. Don't be discouraged though mama! He will take to it eventually (they just have their own little time table) :)

I said the SAME thing. He will get there. I promise. I hate telling you this because I HATED when everyone told me this, but your son is still really young. He will tell you! My son slowly started doing it and then one day he KEPT doing it. Don't give up hope! :)

I agree but there are some people.who tell me he's too big for diapers and such. it annoys me , I hate when they try to teach me lol. But I let him do what he wants , i try to sit him but he won't do nothing lol . But I need him off diapers before my second one arrives , I dont want to buy two packs of diapers haha.

LMAO don't listen to those people! I had the same pressures as well! But I learned that it's better to let them learn at their own pace then to force them into something they're not ready for. You can actually really scar them that way. I just stayed consistent and made sure he was aware of what the potty was for and how to use it and eventually (after the MONTHS of him sitting and not doing anything in it) he finally PEED! It was amazing! Pooping was like a whole different potty training! I SWEAR! It was like starting from square one with the pooping. I know what you mean about buying 2 packs. I'm so thankful my son is out of the diapers now with #2 on the way! It'll happen!
