  • switch him to underwear...he needs to feel those accidents on his skin. I would say maybe he is not ready but because he was doing so good I take pull ups away. once my kids basically get it down except at night they wear underwear.

  • we gave our son nothing but praise when he did good... on his good days, he received so many compliments about being a big boy, he tried extra hard... and he was rewarded.. a cookie, coloring, or a new Hotwheel car was added to his collection...
    on his bad days, he felt terrible... he didn't know why he wet his pull ups.. so we just nicely explained that he had to continue to try very hard to run to the potty.. big boys go in the potty, and they get to wear really cool underwear, once they are potty trained.....
    we also changed the theme in the bathroom, to something he liked... he loved Finding Nemo... watched it almost daily.. we changed everything in the bathroom, to an Ocean theme... he loved it... especially the toilet seat.. it was a clear seat, with fish inside... he loved going potty after that...

  • Get rid of the pul up as PP states. There is nothing stopping him from peeing in it since it will absorb it. Basically a big kid diaper.
