ds is 24 months and still very much in diapers. I am not sure if I am doing enough to potty train him at this point. I am very laid back about it and wondering if I could be doing more. We have two potties- one in the bathroom on each floor. But my question/ issue is- he is still in diapers (cloth fitteds with thirsties velcro covers), plus then pants over it usually. It seems like quite a lot of work to expect him to tell me when he needs to go, go to the toilet, take off his pants and diaper, eliminate in the potty. I know lots of people go for lots of naked time but I am not too keen on having him pee all over the house. He does get naked time each day but mostly just to air out and have some non restricted time.
I don't usually have him outside naked.
I did get some "training underwear"- but they are basically underwear with a thicker part on it, and I rarely put them on him yet.
Should I be being more assertive with teaching him how to take off his diaper when he needs to eliminate? Right now he knows the words poop and pee, and he can tell us often if he needs to go. He is always interested in dh and I peeing etcetera. He occasionally sits on his potty (with clothes on). If I try to get him to sit on it unclothed he just gets up. I guess that means he is not ready? I guess I can try to encourage sitting on the toilet naked more? any tips? I know he usually poops in the morning, and I usually know if he has to go- and I can say, ds do you want to sit on the potty? and he says- no. Even if he is naked and I know he has to poop, I offer the potty and he says no and then he wants a diaper because he is used to it. Any tips on how to proceed- or do I just keep being laid back about it and let him initiate it?
