New here :) potty training advice needed!
Hi everyone, I'm new to the group. I have a 4 year old son with fragile x syndrome. He was diagnosed a little over two years ago. I wanted to write and see if anyone here had some really good tips/tricks for potty training. B is very quickly outgrowing size 6 diapers, and I REALLY don't want to have to special order larger ones... And have no idea how I'd do that anyway. What I really want is for him to start potty training. We took about a month off of his therapies to give potty training a try this summer. He did end up peeing on the potty a total of 5 times, however it was only when we took one of the portable potty chairs and put it at his seat at the table, and he peed while eating. He doesn't seem to care much when his diaper is full (pee or poo). I'm not sure what to do. I know its not something that'll happen over night, but I want to at least be starting to make some progress. He has a younger sister who will be 2 next month, she is completely unaffected and typically developing, and is starting to show signs of being ready to start potty training. One of the big things about kids with fragile x is that they learn well by mimicking, maybe when she starts it'll happen for him too, but I'd really like to start trying now. Any advice/tips/tricks are welcomed and extremely appreciated! Thanks!!
