Get a baby potty seat that goes on the toilet, it worked great for Catelynn :)

[deleted account]

i tried potty training for over 2 months with no progress...i just learned to read her and know pretty much when she goes, i'd sit her down and most of the time she'd go but she hates being on the potty too. after 2 months my husband said to put the diaper back on and so i did just cuz i got so tired of no progress. i trained with no diapers except put them on at night. and no luck. she never tells me when she wantd to go. i will try again in a couple months...good luck

My baby is now showing an interest when "we" go potty, and will tend to go find a secluded spot when he's making a poo but as far as being ready, I don't think so, not quite yet.

I would have to say don't wear anything, that's what i did, i started to buy panties but my little monster (said lovingly), because she doesn't know how to pull things off of her big bum it was hindering. Just let him be naked, yes there will be accidents but its easiest accessibility for him to the potty if he doesn't have to wear anything to take off. besides your little one will dig the new found freedom of air in places.

my son is a march 09 baby and fully potty trained. you have to set the example because babies look up to their parents so much. see how safe and fun it is to sit on a potty or the toilet seat if he's scared of the potty. it's also nice to buy a potty trainer that has music. it's fun for them, makes them wants to sit longer. good luck! potty training is really a challenge for parents.

My daughter is getting there.. I have started waking her up early and popping her on the potty so she does her first wee of the day on there. At the moment she is still learning how to control her bladder! With that said, my son didnt potty train until he was 3! I was at my wits end, put a ping pong ball in our loo and told him to aim.. within two weeks he was toilet trained!!

My son was born March, 28. I've been trying to potty train since June. He was to the point where he was going to the potty successfully most of the time. Then we moved....Now he has totally reverted back to not using the potty! I've tried just about everything I can think of. Finally, I called the doctor this morning. I'm still waiting on a call back. But I don't know what else to do!

Yes my son is 100% potty trained because, his older brother teased him into it. Seriously.

I had three kids in two years. My oldest son (who is 5) was potty trained at just about a year. When Rauri (the March baby) was big enough to walk and understand what they potty is Caoleb would call him a baby and make fun of him for using diapers.

I did get onto Caoleb and explained to him that it was not ok to make fun of Rauri because, he was still a baby. IT WORKED! Rauri got so upset that he refused to wear diapers and forced himself to potty "like a big boy". He was bound and determined to show his brother up and he did.

Rauri has been potty trained since he was about a year and a half old.

Don't feel bad...my son is a November 08' baby and still not potty trained. I am hoping that daycare can potty train him the same way they were able to train my stubborn 4 year old. Some kids just need to see others having the same issues as them. Good luck!

my two arent yet. my oldest is three almost 4.he screams everytime i try to take him potty. i have no idea what to do except keep with it. ive managed to get him to ask on rare occassion and he understands but he only seems to ask at nap / bed time. i think this may be a stall tactic but i take him anyway even if ive just changed him. he still wont go poopie in the potty only pee. its definitely frustrating and annoying. but i do my best.

it deepends on ur kids tt's wat others say. my elder son born in aug 2008 is potty trained for day & night. totally off diapers for 24hrs. He also don like to sit on potty. I trained him straight to the toilet (the squat type) let him see how his daddy pee as they pee the same. reward him if he does it well.

My daughter was born March 20, 2008 as well. I've been trying to potty train her since she was 2. She is very stubborn, she always uses the potty to poop but when it comes time to pee, sometimes she does sometimes she doesn't. She's been close to being fully potty trained a few times now, but for some reason keeps reverting back. Still trying to work with her, but being so close is very frustrating.

My son wasn't born in March but he was born in 2008 of December and he is now almost 80% pottyed traianed.. But as we all no all children are different. I have my own day care and I have several children that are 2 or getting ready to hit 3 and about 50% are still struggling and scared of the potty. Don't worry just keep trying and he/she will start going vefore you no it!!

well i was able to potty train my daughter before her second bday. it really wasnt hard the first time she went and got a diaper and told me to change her i knew it was time. so in reality she told me when she was ready to use the potty, now she uses the grown-ups potty with no problems. now i amtrying to get her 17 month old brother to use the potty before he turns 2.

well first off how old is he? if he is scared then I would give it a bit longer, and give him positive things about the potty when you go in there.. tell him "See, mommy uses the potty and so does ..... the potty isn't scary!! the potty makes you a big boy!" just make it a positive thing! and try getting him his own potty chair, let him play with it and let him sit on it with his diaper on....this is letting him get used to it.

My son is August 08 baby and he's potty trained as well. What helped was to have the potty in a room he feels comfy in which for the first week or 2 was his room. We also had the "Potty Power" dvd such a great dvd! And I kinda just let him run around naked for a while even to bed and he never had any accidents! Good Luck!

My April 09 girl has just full trained accept for bed. My other one trained early at 22 mths. They were girls though which train earlier i think. You didnt say. Buy them big girl/boy knickers. Borrow books from the library about potty time and read them with your chil on the potty (or beside it. Relax about toilet training. Some children wont go because they can feel how much you want it. The moment it becomes forced and a chore by you, it does for them too. Ask if they would like to go if they say no, in a happy voice say OK I was going because I am a big girl I thought you might want to too. Be light about it. Choose your times well too. Dont ask when their fav program has just started lol

My daughter is 18 months, born feb of 2010. I started this AMAZING '3 day potty training' method and she is now potty trained! You should really read up on it!!! I think you will love it also! She was 90% potty trained after the very 1st day!! There are several '3 day' methods out there but they are all very similar!
http://pottytrainingmethod.blogspot.com/...

If you think your kiddo is ready to do it, and you are completly ready to commit to it! Do it! It takes a lot of work, determination, research, commitment, patience, positive reinforcement, and panties/underwear (tons and tons!)! I wish you all the luck!

I was told by my daughter's pediatrician that it is called Potty Training, but it is not a "trained" situation. Just like getting teeth, crawling, walking....it will happen when the child is ready. Not to worry about it they will get it on their own and pushing them or pestering them to go "potty" all the time will only make you both frustrated! So, my May 21st, 2008 Girl is not potty trained but she does tell me when she has to go potty when it suites her.

My DS was born the 9th of May and he potty trained himself in February! I just let him go to the bathroom with us and told him what we were doing. He loved going with his big brothers too. It really depends on the child. Don't rush it.

I let my daughter, born march 4 '08, to just decide for herself when she was ready. I always encouraged her and she came with me when I went, but never made her do it if she was scared to not ready. One day she just woke up (about 4 weeks ago) and decided she wanted to start using the potty and she's been doing it ever since. No child is really going to go to kindergarten in a diaper, so my advice is to let her/him figure it out on their own. They know when they're ready! :)

My son was trained on "pee pee" at 18 months but then decided he didn't want to do it anymore so we gave it a break for about a month and started again. He is now 3 and has been completely potty trained (pee and poo) since he was 2. We started with using stickers as rewards and when that wore off we started using small candies like skittles and m&m's. He just moved up to using the toilet with a training seat.

my daughter turned three just this past march and she is fully potty trained now. I let her pick out a book and the type of stickers she wanted and everytime she went "potty" she got a good girl sticker. If she was bad she didn't get a sticker and was told that she was a bad girl and she needs to be a good girl and then she would get to pick out her own panties. That worked for me and she got dora panties and now i don't have to buy pullups anymore.

ok, first child showed interest at 14 months... success a few times on baby potty... until I had surgery and put her back in diapers while some one else watched her and was afraid of accidents on their floor. Three days of that, and she refused to go on the potty again. I STILL have issues...

Next, son... I was so frustrated with trying so hard with daughter, that I didn't WANT him training yet... we finally started to feel she was somewhat over it and suddenly he decided to use the potty. He never looked back... (at just a tad past 2 1/2.

My third, I was getting ready for trouble because she was really tough starting... but it wasn't long and suddenly she just up and did it right all the time. Literally, went from diapers to underwear in like a day! She's the March baby that's just turning three. She switched to panties over 6 months ago... maybe closer to 8...

My daughter has been potty trained since she was about 24 months. She has an older sissy and me so we took her in with us everytime we went and she kinda followed the leader. We also let her pick out her potty chair and had a fun sticker chart. Good luck!

My daughter was born on March 13th of 08. She has a big sister so she was potty trained by the time she was 1 I think. She goes to bed with no diaper every night and may have an accident one or two times a month.

My son has been fully potty trained for 4 months. Don't push the issue. Get a potty chair, let the child in with you going on the potty, let the child sit on the potty with clothes on.

Hello Kimberley,
My son was born March 19 and is completely potty trained except for at night time. From what I've heard, they will get it when they are ready. But you can help the process with consistency and practice. My kids are in school (daycare) and in the 2's class they start the process of setting a timer every 30 minutes and when the timer goes off it is time to "Try" going potty. If they go great, if they don't, fine. But they are starting to get the routine of going, and understanding what if feels like for their body when they have to got potty. We did the same process at home to stay consistent. We set the microwave for 30 minutes, and whenever it went off, we'd say It's time to try and go potty. It wasn't a question he could get out of, it was a statement "Its time to try and go potty."

We always had a big "Potty Party" whenever he successfully went on the toilet. The "Potty Party" consisted of mommy and daddy yelling joyfully and clapping our hands "yeah Jakey we are so proud of you, you went pee on the potty". He would get a big grin and say over and over again, "I went pee on the potty."

We also got the book "The Potty Train" and would read it all the time. I think it was a benefit that the boy in the book looks similar to my son, so we told him it was him, which helped him get into the story. http://www.amazon.com/Potty-Train-David-...

We had him in pull-ups for a while and would explain to him how they worked. If he peed in them, then the picture would be gone. He really liked the Toy Story ones, so he started to understand what we were talking about, because he was very into the Rocket, Wheel, and Stars that they have.

School recommended that we bring in a bunch of changes of clothes and just start putting him in undies. They can't really feel the wetness in a diaper. They feel it a little more with a pullup, but they really feel it when their clothes get wet. For a month or so I brought home 4 or 5 changes of clothes, but he slowly got it. Also, he seemed not to have accidents if he was naked. So we would try that on the weekends.

Finally, everything clicked when he asked us for a specific toy "Buzz Lightyear." We told him he could earn it by going poop on the potty. Every time he had an accident he would tell us "I earn buzz lightyear when I poop on the potty." We would not get upset with him, we would just get him cleaned up and tell him "Yes, that's right." Immediately, after he pooped in the potty the first time we went to Target and let him get Buzz Lightyear. He was so excited, and had only a few accidents after that.

Maybe too much detail for you, but this is what worked for us. Good Luck!

Just keep trying. Encourage them to go when they get that feeling run and sit on the potty. My little one is fully potty trained! she was born on Mar. 4th 2008.

Mine isn't. With my oldest I just asked him on a regular basis if he wanted to go. If he didn't, I didn't make him. One day he just decided that he wanted to go and start using the potty. Since I let him decide when he was going to do it, I haven't had very many accidents with him. My March 08 baby girl will go sit on the potty, but not until after she's already gone to the bathroom in her diaper lol just let them go at their own pace, no kid ever starts kindergarten in a diaper so don't worry :)
