When dd was being potty trained it took forever and I figured it was because we pushed her into it. We started training at 2 and she was fully potty trained at 3 1/2.
With ds I decided he would be the one to make the decision on when he would be trained. For the last year he has been in pull ups and we would ask him if he had to go. Several weeks ago I was getting things ready to give him a bath and he sat on his potty and went. Of course I thought he was ready. Well after that he refused to go near his potty.
This week I decided he was going to be trained whether he liked it or not. We started Thursday afternoon and at first it was hard but since then he is getting it. He is in his big boy underwear all day and in his pull ups at night.
My question though is how do you get little boys to push their penis down so the urine goes in the potty and not all over themselves? We do have the guard for the potty but ds takes it off because it scratches him.
Thanks and sorry if this is long!
