  • Get a small potty, introduce him to it and keep encouraging him to sit on it. Watch for the signs (dancing around, etc.) and take him when you think he needs to go. What worked for me & was a suggestion my friend made: The first few days I let him go without clothes from the waist down. He caught on pretty quick. That can be messy though...Good luck!

  • I threw all the diapers away and put him in undies (used pull ups for nighttime) gave him lots of juice, and took him to the bathroom alot lol, he held his pee all day! (little booger) until his dad came home and showed him how "cool" it is to stand and pee :) good luck with whatever you do! and dont get discouraged!

  • I put the potty out in the open let him get aquainted to it. At first he may play with it. Say things like "Its time to go potty" or "Mommy has to go potty why don't you come with me". Hope that helps.

  • It's the same. Get a little potty with a splash guard. He can sit too. Then, when he has it down. Have him stand like the big boys.
