  • i know this is a lil weird.. but give him a mayo jar..tell him to make bubbles in it lol.... put cheerios in the potty tell him to aim at them and pee... they actually make rings for the toilet for that. my sister bought them for my nephew.. my son is too tiny to learn but i plan on using the ring idea..

  • why cant you have diapers in the house to potty train? To potty train my daughter I let her wear pull ups until she got really goos about actually going in the toilet when she had to but anyways We just made sure that she sat on the toilet for like ten min after having drinks... and that we asked her a lot... and remember not all kids are ready at the same time.... maybe he's just not ready

  • just stick to what you are doing. I never used charts ot stickers, just overally positive praise. My youngest is 21 months and potty trained, he did it in about 5 days.

  • For my two daughters it wasn't until day 5 or 6 that we saw real progress... I'd stick with it. Make sure you're focused on him and catching the accidents as they happen and moving him to the potty right away. If you notice 5 minutes later, he's already forgotten the feeling he had right before he had to go...
