  • Potty train him sitting down on the potty first. Once he gets the concept of going to the potty when he has to, then you can work on his aim. For that i would suggest putting a fruitloop in the potty, tell him to hold his pee pee and hit the target. It makes it fun! :)

  • All my boys went at 1 almost 2 I just started sitting them on the big toilet,over and over asking did they have to go plus stopped the pampers and pullups and put on undies.once they went in the toilet it was clear to them on going.You just have to be persistant.When they eat, drink,wake up take him.let him sit a few,and keep repeating.until it happends then praise him and he'll be ready.

  • I had a step stool and put my boys on the potty backwards so they faced the tank. It seemed less frightening. It also skips the dreaded baby potty seat. I tried a sticker chart and that helped a little. Really, it just takes time and some kids are ready earlier or later than others. Mine were both trained by 4. I think this putting them in underwear so that they pee their clothes several times a day is ridiculous. But, that does work for some so I'm not knocking it. It just didn't work for us. Good luck!

  • I put my son on the potty sitting down at first, then he got more comfortable and was able to stand. Same thing with my second son and now my 1 year old tries to copy him and go standing up but he's not tall enough for his penis to go over the rim!
