..and he has absolutely no interest in potty training. None, whatsoever. In fact if we even mention it he gets very upset and says "I don't know how". There was a time a few months ago where he would go in by himself and go potty. We didn't even talk about it he would just go. Now that we have mentioned it to him (because he recently had some trouble with his urethra and the doctor said the best thing for him is to get out of diapers) he flat out refuses to even try. I know every kid is different, my daughter was potty trained at 2 1/2 ...I just don't want to make him uncomfortable by tying but he actually needs to get out of his diapers. Do any of you have any suggestions?
*We also just switched to pull-ups, the doctors suggestion because of the problem he is having with his urethra and groin area. I did not want to switch to pull ups so early in the training but we have to.

LOTS of Bribery!! I let me 21 month old have a candy if he uses the toilet!! We let him pick out a special potty at target and whenever we use the restroom we take him with us and we put him on his potty and tell him lets go potty together! LOL weird but works! U can also put cherrios in the toilet and tell him ready aim FIRE!! My son gets a kick outa that as well!
