  • The worst thing to do is put them in pull ups. Normally between 2-2 1/2 is when boys potty train, some before some after. The best thing to do is put underwear on them and ask them if they need to go potty or take them to the potty every so often. The most important thing is to just stick with it.

  • i started my son at 2. he didnt really get it until almost 3 though. we started with pooping. it was the best thing ive ever done. i think he only had 3 accidents EVER, when he wasnt sick and couldnt help but to go in his pants. no more poopy diapers after about 26 months. i LOVED that. and i used pull ups at night and undies during the day. i started out taking him every 20 mins to half hour for about two weeks. then we took it up to every 30-40 mins for about two weeks. and so on. eventually he was going on his own. you'll need ALOT of undies, as he WILL have accidents, probably often, for the first at least two weeks. i didnt use rewards at first but after a while, he didnt seem interested anymore. we got him a potty seat from walmart for like 10-15 bucks with his favorite character on it and we did a sticker chart. after 15 stickers he got a prize. its simple, cheap, and it WORKS! good luck momma!!! =]
