Hi ladies. My name is Laura, and I have a little boy who just turned two in August, who is driving me crazy with the whole potty training thing.



We started him early, because when he was around 16 months, he would pee on us on purpose when we changed his diaper. In fact, he thought it was hilarious. His face would turn red because he was pushing so hard to pee. So we introduced the potty, and he knew to pee on it right away. A few months later, he started asking to go pretty regularly while my Inlaws were here, so I figured it might be time to get more serious. So I bought him some undies. By the end of the first three days, he was only having one pee accident a day. Then he just quit.
This is our cycle. He will get to the point where he'll have only one accident a day (pee or poop), then he just stops asking for weeks. Then eventually he'll start again. So I know he understands the concept. I have tried sticker charts, rewards, making a big deal out of it, everything. I don't know if I just have to keep letting him do his thing. This time, I'm making him help clean up his messes, and hoping that might help. Any suggestions?

I've been lurking this thread for a while.



My son is 22 months and we started PTing a couple weeks ago, but currently we are taking a break because of the holidays and how crazy it is. I also have been babysitting an almost 3 month old so while we were exclusively PTing, it was very difficult to handle both a demanding baby and keeping on top of PTing my son.



When he wants to go of course I let him. He actually jsut pooped in the potty for the first time on Tues! And has been pooping in it since then :shock:, with the exception of a couple accidents, just barely missing the potty. Once he poops out one turd, he goes "ewwwwwww!" and doesnt like to sit back on the potty to finish LOL. So he's actually doing better with pooping than peeing LMAO



Once we get back from our trip we will get back into exclusively potty training. My mom thinks he'll be trained by the time he's 2. Which will be good because he's going to be the ring bearer in my brother's wedding in March!

Hello,
My daughter is 19 months old, and we planto startPTing after the new year. We have tried a few times, but she has no interest in the big potty-I will be getting a little potty just for her sometime soon.
Up until a couple of weeks ago, she really wasn't showing many of the behavioral ready signs. She is now becoming more aware of when she is soiled/wet and trying to take her pants down. She also loves mommy's undies. :)
Wish us luck. I've been lurking for tips and checking out links, but any other advice is also welcome!

I updated the OP with a "warning" about pull-ups leaking and not cooling after a pee for some people.

Hi everyone!!! My son just turned 1 today and for his bday he got a potty. After he woke up from his nap I sat him down on the potty and let the water in the sink run and I even ran water on his privates so maybe he would go, but nothing worked. Just looking for some advice on what to do. I am so confused with all this. lol
