Today is day 6 of potty training. so far, day 1, 2 and 4 he peed in the potty once, day 5 peed in the potty twice, day 3 and day 6 nothing. We are so proud when he goes in the potty, even if it is once a day or twice, it's a great start. He is praised. but the days he doesnt and it's all accidents I get frustrated (I dont take it out on him at all). he's pretty much in underwear all day, cloth training pants for naps and outings, diapers at night. I take him to the potty at the right time because if he misses it's usually right after he is off the potty. I'm not in a rush, but also not being sluggish about it. can anyone relate? Are we on the right track?

You are on the right track... but with some kids... most boys... it takes a long time! You have to ignore all those "my kid did it at 18 months, and it only took 3 days" stories!!! Yeah, some people get lucky and that's good for them - but that is SO NOT the norm. The reality is it takes a long time, and you just have to keep trying!! I know... we've been at it for months!! Some days are good, some days not so much. I even talked to my little guys Doc... she says it's totally normal to be taking this long ;o) Hing in there Mom, stop counting the days, and roll with it!! Your doing great!!
