  • My guy was STUBBORN. We're still not 100%.
    I had the best luck letting him be naked on the bottom, putting the potty where he could find it easily, and just waiting. If he started messing with his stuff, I stuck him on the potty. If I knew it was his regular poop time, I'd stick him on it and let him watch some cartoons or we'd read or whatever. Took a while, but it worked.

  • to help him be a good aimer you can put cheerios in the toliet and have him aim at em .....:) also I wouldnt reccomend using those pull ups during the day if he isnt staying dry at night yet ten use em but I liked to use the terry cloth training pantsthey save money and they feel good on the kids but the child will feel the wetness and find it uncomfortable and patients.....

  • All the tips are good, it's just you will have to find what works for you. I would read to him while he was sitting and sing songs. But, what I found out is that you both have to be ready. Not just your toddler, but parents included.
