  • Whatever works for him. Mine sat like a girl for the first few weeks and once he "got" it, I had him stand and learn that way.

  • My son never sat unless he had to poop. And when he pooped, he sat backwards. Now he is sitting normal when pooping. It all depends on the child.

  • When we first started training, my son sat down and we told him to make sure his penis was in the potty (many times it wasn't and he peed all over the floor). He still sits (trained for one month) and is starting to show interest in standing like daddy.

    My son was 2.5 when he met all the readiness signs. It took 4 days.
