My 19 mo ds has recently started begging for the potty when he wants attention. Usually when I'm dropping him off at daycare (he's still adjusting to going, it's only 4 hours a week), or when he's feeling ignored because I have something else I have to attend to, driving, making dinner etc, or when he's trying to put off bedtime. He almost never goes on these occasions when I stop and take him.
How do you handle this? He's in diapers full time still, and we've only ever part time ec'd, though he's going potty more frequently now that he can tell us he needs to go. I don't want to go diaper free, he still wets his diapers multiple times a day, even when he potties in between, and he does pee on the floor sometimes if he escapes without a diaper on during a change/potty time. I could see moving to trainers soon, but I don't think that would really help with the crying potty thing. I don't think he's coordinated enough to pull down his pants by himself yet.
