My son is turning 3 in April. I started easing him into the idea of potty training previously. At first, he liked wearing what I call his "big boy pants," which are just boys' underwear, and had no problem putting them on, but now he doesn't like taking his diaper off at all, and whenever I ask him if he wants to wear his big-boy pants, he says no and starts asking for his diaper and crying. I don't get it. I've been very easy with him with the training as I did read the book Potty Training for Boys. He did go on the potty once but that was because one day, he just loved sitting on it and did not want to get up. He was reading his Chuck N Friends book on it and wound up peeing right in it. I was soooo proud of him for it and praised him. He really doesn't tell me when he has to pee, though. I thought if I kept at it, he would understand.
Anyway, why he is now crying for his diaper, when at first, he was really excited to wear his underwear? Not sure what to do at this point and I can't force him at all in this process and don't want to stress him out, but at the same time, I feel like if I continue being easy and putting his diaper back on when he cries for it, we'll never make any progress. I really don't want to stop because he was sitting on it at one point and did actually go in the potty once, but then again, I'm not sure if this is a sign he is not ready. Not sure what to do.
