  • Lazy? He's too young. Wait a few months and then try again. I waited until mine were 3. He's not even 2. Could he walk at 9 months? How was he potty trained? That's ridiculous. What is the rush?

  • well first of all if there is a major change then it's normal for kids to regress for awhile. secondly, if he was fully potty trained then he would not be wearing a diaper anymore. diapers don't help potty training. i would just start over again, but imo he is young to be truly potty trained. if you have to be the one telling him to go sit on the potty then he's not trained. they are trained when they realize they have to go potty and then run to the potty and go. but anyway gl and like i said, it's normal for kids to regress when there's a big change in their life

  • My mum had both my sister and I potty trained by 9 months as well. By doing the same thing.

    Stay consistent at your home and ask your ex to do the same. Explain to him that your child being potty trained earlier will save money in the long run because of the cost of diapers.

  • Potty trainers tend to revert from time to time.Its normal and it happens. Just keep doingwhat you have been doing,he'll go on the potty again! Great job mama!

  • MOst parenting books say that attempting to potty train a child before the age of 2 is a waste of time. Because it just becomes frustrating to them. 9 months. That is rediculous. They say a child is not ready to even start potty training until they can tell you that they have to go, or right after they go. Why are you trying to force your poor baby to grow up so fast?
