My best friend used the Fruit Loop method. She put a fruit loop, yes the cereal, in the toilet and told him to aim for it. He loved it so much, it took 4 days to train him. He though of it like a game. So whenever he had to go he made sure to tell her so he could play the Aim Game. My son is almost 3 and I will be trying the same method. If you aren't too sure about the cereal, they also sell little plastic colored rings for this purpose as well. You just have to take them out and wash them. I like the actual cereal methid myself because once it absorbs water it turns to mush and will not clog the potty. You just flush it away...no mess! I hope this works for someone as well as it did for my nephew!
