  • i put the potty in the room we were in like the living room, i had two kids in diapers my two are 18 monthes apart and i was a single mom., so when it was time to potty train my dd, i would put the potty in the room with us, toddlers don't have the same bladder control as we do, and i would watch for the signs that she needed to go, and quickly put her on the potty. now for my boy, i just used the regular potty i was so happy when he finally went and the first time he wee weed standing up, made me so proud of him. you just have to watch for the signs, mine would squirm and pull at their pants thats how i know, and maybe put cheerios in the potty for your boy, thats always a fun trick to help them potty train, my sister told me that one.

  • still battling my 3 yr old. He knows that he can use the potty, but is reluctant. He'll sit a few times for a chocolate reward, but that's pretty much as far as it gets right now. My 5 yr old took until right after his 4th bday to get a total clue. Bday is coming up for my little man, so I am hoping that the last of the struggle is coming soon. I was hoping to get him done before his little brother arrives, but that's in 3 weeks, so I don't forsee it happening. oh well.
