I have a question about toilet learning for my almost three year old Ds. He was well on his way to potty success back in December, but then I had to go to the hospital for three days, and he reverted. Now he won't go on the potty. For several months he didn't even look at the potty. Now he will sit on it with his pants on, or sometimes even with them off, but he won't pee in there. Sometimes he will wait long enough for me to put his training pants back on to pee. I don't know what to do. I think he links his pottying success with my going away. I have tried to reintroduce him slowly, but I am worried. He has a speach delay and is being evaluated by the school for speach therapy. They seem to think there is more wrong with him because he is shy around strangers, and he isn't out of diapers yet. I just don't know what to do. Do you think a different potty would help.

The potty he is learning on now is the same one I learned on, and my brother learned on. It looks like a tiny yellow toilet and it plays music. Inside is a little bowl that catches everything and then you dump it. When he was using it all of the time I kept having to mop the floor when he was done, because the urine kept missing the bowl and winding up on the floor. I think one of the baby bjorn potties that are more of a one peice deal would keep this from happening, but I don't want to buy a new potty if I don't need to. I just wonder if a different potty might get him interested again. Has anyone had an experience like this? What have you done to help your toddler on the potty?

Thanks so much in advance.
