I got my son a potty chair at 18months of age in hopes that he might be mostly trained by the time I had my second son this January. I know I was being optimistic. Since starting he has done really well as far as going #2 on the potty, but not #1. He has said he needed to use the potty and only done #1 a few times so I think he gets the sensation to go. My problem is that I tried training pants a few days and unless I take him to the bathroom every 20-30 minutes he'll just go on himself. My mom says I should keep putting him in the training pants and continue to take him to the bathroom all day but it seems to me that I am just forcing something that is not ready to happen yet. Anyone have any thoughts/suggestions??
