  • If dad or grandpa or any male figure is around, have them take the baby to the bathroom every time they go. Then they can see how to work their penis. I mean, we have a vagina and sit down.... That's what always made sense to me LOL

  • I didn't use a method. My Son only took 4 days to fully train, and on Day 2 of training, He started standing to pee AND stopped wetting at night. He aimed just fine then (just under 2 1/2 years old) and still does (He is just over 3 1/2 now).

  • Some of my friends put cheerios on the toilet for their sons to aim at. Made it fun!
