What is the best way to potty train my son?

We tried to potty train before. He likes to sit on the toilet but wants to get off and on a lot so he never sits there long enough to do anything. He is now going in his diaper and then taking it off so I know it is time but how???

  • A very cute one that I've heard on here is to put a few Cheerios in the toilet and make a game of trying to see how many Cheerios he can "shoot" with his pee.

  • @ MrsHouston Ya I had heard the same. I only worry that my son will try to eat them instead!!! haha
    @ Lynnsae My son always wants to use it he just won't sit there long enough. I am hoping he will decide he will be ready soon. After this weekend it is no more diapers.

  • Well, I have potty-trained 5 little boys and working on the 6th atm. My tried and true? "go potty with daddy" I put a small container of Cheerios on the back of the toilet and they aim away. My son hasn't got the concept yet, but he is getting the idea that when you pee you go to the toilet. Once they master peeung in the toilet the comes naturally.
