I decided to sit my son down on the potty, just to see what would happen. We played with the Elmo potty app and a few games for awhile, and to my surprise he pooped! I made a big deal about it and made sure he saw it, and then I didn't know what to do next so I just put his diaper on and put him down for a nap.
I'm not really sure where to go from here. He's not exactly showing any signs of "potty training readiness" and I'm not sure if he understands what happened when he went potty.
Now what? Should I continue putting him on the potty and waiting for him to go for awhile until he can understand the concept better? Or should I just dive right in to underwear and accidents? He doesn't seem to know when he has a dirty diaper, so I'm not sure that would be beneficial. I doubt he would understand any kind of a rewards chart.
He has very little communication, but I think I can teach him to use the ipad to tell me when he has to go, once he understands what that means.
If he's not ready, when will that become clear?
Any advice would be helpful, thanks!
