My little 2.5 year old boy is progressing nicely using the potty (though he still hasn't quite caught on to going poo on the potty), but he was actually interested in it having seen my god sons being potty trained ahead of him. I have read recently several people posting their own potty training successes. Many people said they had wonderful (and quick) success simply switching to cotton training pants or regular underwear, no covers. Yes they had messes the first few days from accidents but they said their children learned very quickly it was easier to go to the potty and then get back to playing than to go in their pants and have to be cleaned up before being able to resume playing. Good luck to you! And remember, every child learns at their own pace, don't push it too hard or you could end up delaying the entire process.
