My 3 yr old is in pull ups and been in them quite a while. I had to start using them to send him to preschool, but he was not quite ready to be potty trained yet. My son has developmental delay and some sensory problems, so that is why I am trying to potty train him so late. Here is my dilemma.... My son is perfect with the potty to pee in but only at bathtime. He will undress and stand up to pee in the potty before going in the tub, then he will get out of the tub to pee when he has to, and finally will go pee after the bath is finished.
I can't get him to answer me when I ask him if he has to go or not. When I take him in there and he goes, he will always wet his pull up like 5 to 10 mins later. It sort of makes me feel like he makes himself go to please me but can;t really finish entirely. When I do try to encourage him and instill some instruction he will always repeat what I said; for instance, "Great job and we need to stay dry all day now". Then he says, "all day everyday". And next time wets his pull up.
It seems like he really isn't understanding the concept and/or trying to turn it into a game with the all day everyday stuff. I really don't know where to go from here, and why is it so easy for him to understand and do at bathtime but not any other time.

Have you tried keeping him naked or putting him in underwear or boxers so he can see and feel when he is going. I never used pull ups I think they are just expensive diapers.
