The problem I'm having isn't that DS (3) flat-out isn't using the potty. Its that he won't use it *for me*. If he were in grandma's custody, he would have been out of diapers more than a year ago. He has no problems going for her and staying dry 24/7. As soon as he comes home, he pees himself left and right. I've even tried bringing him home from her house in underwear (she never puts a diaper on him) and he pees himself as soon as he walks in the front door. I'm trying to take him at regular intervals but he either stops going (in the toilet or on himself) or he goes so often that I'm taking him and changing him every 60 minutes. I don't know what to do.

This Mommy and Military Daddy are loving their son.

Hi WifeofAnt. I don't have any advice for you but wanted to suggest that you post over in Dr. Laura Markham's forum to see if she has any advice. http://www.mothering.com/community/f/16927/laura-markham :thumb
