  • I wants more attention that is little brother is getting. It seems he belives his little bro is getting more attention cause he is a baby and so he wants to be babied.

  • He's crying out for more attention. He probably still wants to be the baby. I would try to praise him more for being a big boy & maybe give him something he can help you with around the house & just spend some special time together while your other child sleeps. Tell him that peeing in the pull up is yucky, & how proud you are of him for using the potty. I hope that will help.

  • I agree with PPs. Make a BIG deal out of being a big boy and talk about all the fun things he can do because he's a big boy & his little brother is just a baby. Only big boys use the potty, etc. Talk to him about how his little brother wants to be just like him because he's the big brother and big brothers use the potty.
