  • Oh wow he is young! i would be so proud! Do not push though!!! Sometimes that can cause them to regress instead of progress. Just prais him, give him something to look forward to like a potty party to celebrate him being potty trained then the whole family can be involved.

  • I waited until all my kids were 3. There is no training involved if you wait until they are ready. I just put them in underwear and had 2-3 days of a few accidents and then they got it. My advice to you is to wait. What's the hurry?

  • thats good he is interested in going potty but dnt rush him it only makes it harder. now my son will be 3 in august and he started going by him self he just walked in the bathroom and went pee pee by himself and ever since then he will say when he needs to go potty. try different things to get him interested in it we actually have the cushion that goes ontop of our toilet and his lil potty we used it for his toys like his spiderman toy and told him spiderman has to go potty and it works. good luck it can be difficult
