Help, potty training my son.

 I am currently potty training my 20 month old son. If I let him walk around naked with the potty near by he will go to it without me asking. If I have him in his pull-up he just goes without telling me most of the time. Once in a while he'll let me know he has to go and I'll take him but he won't go. How can I get him to go in the potty while wearing the pull-up?

i personally would not recommend the pull-ups, my son saw them as diapers. what i did was buy him little underwear and have him wear them around the house, the first ones i bought him had elmo on them so i would tell him that if he pee'd elmo would cry, so he would try to not make elmo cry...lol but when he had an accident he  would come to me and say "mommy, elmo is crying" lol. good luck!

I agree with Damien, my son thought pull ups were the same things as diapers. And also dont push it on him. If HE wants to go, then  let him. But I wouldnt try to push him yet if he's not ready (not saying that you are). My son will be three in a week and about a month before his birthday we started in underwear. The first couple days there were a lot of accidents but by the end of the week we were down to 1-2 accidents a day and a LOT more in the potty.
