My DS is 27 months old. I have been slowly introducing the concept of the potty to him. We went and picked out a potty and made a big deal about it and he loved it. We also have the "Once upon a potty" DVD which he really likes to watch. At this point (it's been about a week) he will sit naked on the potty and wonder why nothing is coming out. I just tell him that we'll try again later and he may or may not continue to sit there and wait, or he'll just run around half naked for a while.
I don't really want to push it on him, and at this stage I'm not concerned about whether he actually learns to use the potty within any particular time frame, but is it ok to introduce it like this? I guess I'm concerned that he will look at it like we're just pretending or playing and won't really attempt to use the potty when he feels the urge. I thought about putting him on the potty at the same time every day (like when he wakes up or around the time he usually has a BM), but this feels kind of wrong to me for some reason. He is very bright and independent, and he was already trying to imitate me when I use the bathroom (he follows me everywhere) so I thought his own potty would be a good start. WDYT?
