and then say pee pee...So i think he knows right before he goes...anyway..is this a fluke? i heard boys were so much harder to train. DD was day trained by 2...or maybe a little over..Anyway, does anyone have any suggestions for this situation? I don't know if i should pursue this or just leave it alone til he's older..
My daughter (now turning 5) was potty learned at 18m old. It happened very quick (within like 3 weeks) and I really didn't push it. She was just ready to learn
If he is willing to sit on the potty let him sit on it. I would just start putting M on the potty when I went. We'd sing a song, read a book and when I was done, I would take her up and if she went we would get excited. If not, then nothing. After a week of that, I would start putting her on after she woke up, before her nap, after her nap, 20 min after lunch and then another time during the day, then after dinner and before bed. I would only sit here there for a minute or two and that was it.
Once she started peeing on the potty and she could hold herself and wake up dry from sleeping of a night time the diapers came off and we went straight into undies. She never had a diaper on again after that.
