When my son was 3 yr and 5 m. he had used the potty but did not want it to be his rutine. I tried 2 or 3 potties, 2 or 3 places ( restroom, family room and his room), reading him something while he tried, giving him something to play with....nothing make him to make the connection. He was able to pee and poo but I had to take it to it.I started to get worried. Cafe Mommies told me ..."he will do it on his own pace" and it was true. I kept him naked most of the day on weekends...he did it but I had to take him to the potty. One day I passed by the toddlers underware and he got excited with the Spiderman and Diego designs. I told him I'd buy them only if he started to go to the potty by himself. He promised and we started on the long weekend of Feb. '09 at his 3 yrs and 5 months. Is your child going to daycare? Mine was and he could see the other children going to potty and the teacher played greatly in the success. Good luck!
