How do i go about potty training my 2 1/2 yr old son?

my husband and i have started to try and potty train our 2 1/2 yr old son. he will pee in the potty but he won't go poopy.

also he doesn't tell us when he needs to go. if we just let him run around in underwear and don't take him to the potty every 15-20 minutes, he will say "pee" but it will be after he has already peed in his underwear.

how do we proceed on getting him potty trained?

  • I started setting a timer and taking my LO every 15 min and sitting for 5 and as she got better at it I would take her at 20 min and have her sit for 4. I slowly backed it up to taking her every hour and sitting just long enogh to pee. This worked very well until we moved and it took her between 6 and 7 mos to WANT to use the potty again. She is almost 3 (in just a few weeks) and has pooped on the potty 4 times in the last month. It will come with time you just have to be persistent and patient at the same time.
