...and he is 2 1/2.
I'm pulling my hair out. A few months ago, he was doing great and then dad left for work. Ever since, he'll decide to use the potty, but it's sporadic. I've tried filling him up with juice and then sitting him on the toilet with water running in the sink, letting him wear his big boy underwear to see if he would be more inclined to go on the potty instead of on the floor, sticker charts, letting him have a candy when he does go on the potty, just about everything I can think of. None of it seems to work. He just has zero interest in going until he has his diaper on. I ask him all the time if he needs to go potty or if he wants to sit on the potty and he tells me he likes his diapers.
Any tips to get him to start using the potty again?
*** I forgot to mention the reason I'm trying to have it done now, haha. Normally, I would be with you guys and wait it out or give it more time. I am a full time student and take at least 15 credits every term. Because DH is gone, I need my son to be in daycare while I do my homework and all that for my classes. Right now, all he qualifies for is 3 hours for two days a week, plus I can put him in their hourly care program (I go online, see what times they have available for another child to join them, and try to book it before someone else does), Once he's 3, he qualifies for a longer program IF he is potty trained. So, the goal is to have him potty trained at 3 so he can go to daycare for an extra day or so a week while I take more credits to get my degree done as quickly as possible.
