I am 23 weeks pregnant, and I'm due Sep 22, my son will be turning 2 on Sep 28. Is it possible to have him potty trained by the time the new baby comes? I know he's kind of young, but I'm very proud of the progress he's made so far. We don't push it, but he has a little potty, and we'll take him in when we go and let him sit on his potty, and when we're spending time at home, we let him run around naked. He hasn't done anything on the potty yet except pass gas, but he'll ask to take off his pants and sit on it and look like he's trying and he knows the potty is for pee and poo, and then he gets to wipe and flush, which he thinks is a big treat. He also loves to wear the pull ups because he likes being able to step into them. He's incredibly smart, so I feel like if he does it once on the potty and gets that feeling, he'll start to catch on really quick, I just don't know how to get that first time to happen. Any suggestions? I don't want to push him too hard, especially because I know he'll already have a big adjustment with new baby sister, but it would be great to have him potty trained when she comes.
