My son will be three in September. He is interested in sitting on the toilet to read books, watch himself in the mirror, sing songs, etc. He peed once in the toilet one early morning months and months ago. He's as well pooped in the potty just a week ago. However, I can't keep his interest long enough to go consistantly. I've tried having him drink a glass of milk then taking him so many minutes later, but he always ends up peeing on my floor after I take him off. Even if he sits there for 20 minutes. I've tried letting him play in a cup of warm water, but that didn't work. I've tried absolutely everything I can think of .. heck even all my mom can think of too.
He's most definitely interested. He tells me when he needs a diaper change, he seems to understand what to do on the toilet, but I can't get him to actually go. And if he's been on there for more then 10 minutes he'll start to cause trouble to get me to take him off.
So ladies .. What methods have you used? I REFUSE to purchase the 3day training books, but I'd love to know what their methods are. PLEASE HELP!
Oh .. And my reasoning for getting him potty trained ASAP are ..
1. He's definitely ready, just getting him to start is the issue.
2. I have three kids under the age of three. I'm losing a fortune in diapers.
