Whats the best way for potty training a 2 & 1/2 yr old boy?

Ben working on it for about 1 month, he will go pee in the potty, but also in his diaper.

  • go to for tips..they have tips for jus boys and for jus girls. but also one thing i did for my lil bro was put a fruit loop in the toilet and told him to aim and shoot lol made it fun so he always wanted to use the potty instead of the diaper

  • the fruit loop does help but taking them to the bathroom every 30 minutes to and hour for a week straight should do the trick.Everyone I have told to try it has worked for and even worked for my now four yr old little boy.Give it a try and see.Good Luck and let me know how it goes.

  • Just stop using diapers, if he is already good about going in the potty, I'd just do it cold turkey.
