Whats the fastest way to potty train a 2 year old boy. And get him sleeping in his own bed?

part 1

Up until 2 weeks ago he was pottying ''like a big boy'' now he's backslid. Hubby only one working, not buying anymore pullups, Diapering a 6 month old as well.

part 2
We lived in a family shelter for 18 mos (most of his life) so he slept with us now we are in our home and I need my bed back.

  • patience with both mommy. you have to relize hes been through a lot and now hes in a new place again so give him time to adjust. just keep putting him in underwears during the day and make it a positive thing when he does go in the potty. as for the sleeping with you bit i got no ideas lol on that one becuz my 20month old has co slept with us since day one. if you have room in your room maybe put his crib mattress down on the floor next to your bed or make him little bed on the floor next to your bed and just tell him that he can sleep near mommy and daddy but he has to be on his bed over time just slowly move him out of your room. good luck

  • Make potty training interesting. We used the book Once Upon a Potty by Alona Frankel. dh or I would take her into the bathroom, sit down on the lid of the big potty and read the book to her. It is long enough that she had plenty of time to do what she needed to do and she was interested in the story. There are versions for boys and for girls.

    As far as the sleeping arrangements go, you will have to make his room a friendly place. It needs to be somewhere he feels safe and comfortable. Stay with him (sit in a chair and read a book, sing softly, etc.) until he falls asleep and slip out quietly. At first, he will wake when you leave, so just repeat and be consistent.

    Good luck. Realize that every child is different and there are times you will have to help him get through changes and help him back from old routines, but he will be fine if you are consistent.
