My mum had the best tip for the nite time training, we got him up jus before we went to bed and sat him on the loo. He did look funny thou being half a sleep sat on the toilet :). But it work and stil is

Well it sure makes me feel better to know I wasn't the only one who had a 3 year old who wasn't potty training! Sounds like all little boys are a bit tough to train!
I very happy to report that my son is FULLY day trained! It was HARD. My husband had 2 weeks off over Christmas and I decided that's when we would start. So day one I FORCED him to sit on the toilet, he cried and cried but I made him go, he went and we gave him a Hotwheel car. WELL that was it. He wanted more cars. And voila. Toilet trained little boy!!! YEAH!!!

My daughter has been PT for about a year. I got her a potty chair around the time of her first birthday. she'd go sit on it and go in her diaper.
Ironically, she was poo trained long before pee. It was like a game, she'd go at night when I was giving her a bath... in and out of the tub about 10 times until she got it all out!
A friend of my husband's was over one night doing some work in our basement... she loves him. So, every time he said he had to go, she'd run up the stairs in front of him and say, Me first! Then she'd go and come out and say, "It's your turn." And she's pretty much been trained since.
We just started night training in November. I got sick of buying pullups and she wasn't going at night, she'd sit in the morning and go in it because she had it on. She's only had a few night accidents since, but I don't give her anything to drink after 7 and I make sure she goes before we put jammies on.
The best thing I did was get rid of the pull ups and put her in panties- not training panties (except to sleep) but "big girl" panties with Tinkerbell and stuff on them!

My daughter still wears a pull up at night but the rest of the day she goes potty by herself. She does not even want help wiping.

My son is mostly potty trained. Having trouble with peeing in the potty but has been going potty for quite a while now. He has been having seizures ever since October 16th 11 days before his 3rd birthday. Was almost potty trained before that.

My October 2005 boy is mostly potty trained. Having trouble with Pooing on the pot but has been going potty for quite a while now. Any tips? :)

So update. My son decided this week that the potty is not such a horrible thing. I got sick of changing diapers and pull ups all day so I put him in big boy undies and voila he just started going no questions asked. Stubborn little booger. We still do pull ups in bed b/c my husband hasn't gotten around to turning the crib into the toddler bed.. Also this week, my son finally kicked the paci habit. Hasnt' even asked for it today YAY!!! So once his bed is turned into the toddler bed we should be off and running!! Sorry I'm way too happy about all of this lol!

My baby girl is 3 and just got her hair cut for the first time by her aunt/my sister. It was so neat seeing her get her hair washed and cut. She is potty trained. I started sitting her on the potty at like 15 months. I did it everytime i went to the bathroom, she picked up on it really quick when I got some candy involved...heheehe We all have our tricks, right?

Anna seemed to be 100% potty trained last June and then the novelty wore off. For a long time it became an argument every time I told her to use the toilet. We're past that, but she still won't go until I tell her to go. I think I inadvertently trained her to do this by never really giving her the chance to do it on her own. Plus, it just doesn't bother her to be wet, so that doesn't help.

I am very lucky. My little one was potty trained at 2yrs and 3 months. My mother in law works from home and she kept Alexa for 5 days. She had Alexa on the potty every single hour. She came home potty trained. No pull ups to bed. She has had only 1 accident and that was right after she was potty trained.

Hey, my 3 yr old has no intrest in the potty and the only way he will go is if we let him run around naked at which he has no other choice but to go potty. I'm beyond frustrated and my husband, who was deployed most of the time our daughter was training, doesn't understand why our 3 yr old will not go. He actually gets mad at him which makes me think it's worse. I am to the point of not knowing what to do. I can't let him run naked all the time b/c then his sister wants to and I just don't feel it's appropriate to let her run naked, she's 5 almost 6. Other than that, he is fairly smart and speaks really well, when the plug isn't in of course but that's a whole other battle.. Ugh, I guess I'm just a frustrated mommy lol.

ok so it sounds impossible but we ordered an e-book off the net called 3-day potty training. I was skeptical but after 5 days he was doing really well and a few weeks later we were 100% accident free. www.3daypottytraining.com

I wish we were potty trained...my Oct 12th little girl is like 75% there only if she would put her mind into...she is finally realizing that she doesn't want to were wet pull-ups...we spent like 3 months without doing anything with it and i was worried that we would never get potty trained. But like 2 nights ago just out of the blue she sat on the potty and went :) its been an every night thing lately so hopefully this means it will be just a little bit longer.
Genie - posted on 11/14/2008
My daughter is as stubborn as it gets! I would say she is about 80% potty trained, basically meaning she has lots of accidents. I thought I would freak out at the fact she isn't fully potty trained at 3, but for some reason I am feeling very patient. I guess I know she will get it...eventually. Potty training aside, she is the most amazing child. Such a personality! Although, I am sure every mom thinks this of her child!

We are potty trained but I'm having some difficulty. It's normal but I wish it were not! She wets her pants every so often, and recently wanted to start sucking her thumb!!! Other than that her vocab is progressing very well and she seems to be becoming more independent as the days pass. She's a big tom boy and seems to get into lots of trouble!

Hi! My little one will only sit on the potty occasionally. Most of the time refuses. She is not even close to being potty trained. :(
Allison - posted on 11/11/2008
Yeah!!!! We have been dry all day (and he even told me once that he had to go)!!! We did have 2 pooh accidents today tho but that will come along! Yesterday I finally just put him in underwear becuase pull ups obviously werent working and we had 2 accidents yesterday and today he is doing sooo good I am so excited for him!!!
Tiffany - posted on 11/11/2008
Allison, we're in the same boat. My son does the same thing - ask him to do something, he refuses, and then does it on his own 15 minutes later. It just needs to be his idea. I've been told to put the boys in underpants. they'll get wet, he'll hate it, and you can point him to the potty instead. Here's a quote from a BH&G magazine article from April 1988 that I'm going to try "parents should be available, but not hovering; helping, but not pushing. When the child has an accident, stay calm, reassuring, and supportive. Focus on success rather than failure, but keep praise low key." "Independence - not cleanliness - is the central issue in teaching a child to use the toilet. For the process to work, the child must have almost total control over it. Parents need do little more than arrange so that the child can use the toilet easily."
We're going to try again over the long thanksgiving weekend, since we're home w/ no visitors. i just need to buy training pants that actually fit. Anyone want a copy of the 1 page article, let me know and I can probably scan or snail mail.

My boy will not tell you ever if he has to go pee, It's always after the fact! He is too stubborn for his own good, you put him on the potty and he goes then 15 min. later he has gone in his pants. It is getting really frustrating, any ideas?

Jaden is doing fine. He does not talk that much but everyone is telling me not to worry too much some children are just late talkers. He is coming on with the potty training, a few accidents at nights but doing ok. His little sis has beat him to the finish line though, she is 22 months tomorrow and she does not use pampers at night. I try not to compare the two, they are each special in their own way.

my daughter is completely potty trained and is now in a ballet class for 5 yr olds even though she is only 3.

My boy is doing well with the potty training. At school he has been dry for about 4 months now, At home he still has a few accidents, also because he plays to hard & doesn't say he needs to go to the toilet in time. He doesn't like the potty at all, so he is straight on the toilet... He still sleeps with a nappy but takes it off himself when he wakes up in the morning. So I am hoping we will be 100% there in December.
April - posted on 11/03/2008
does running around naked without any accidents count? ;)
Jaymie - posted on 10/28/2008
Ya we've given up a few times here to. If they're not ready...then there's nothing we can do about it!:(
Yes someone posted in another thread about letting them be responsible for their own messes etc. I am going to try this as everything else has failed!
Tiffany - posted on 10/27/2008
We tried this weekend and failed miserably on the potty training. First, the training pants I ordered online were WAY too big. Then, he cried and begged to get off the potty each hour when we put him on there. So, I gave up. Probably the worst thing to do, but there's just no way I was going to deal with it. I'm going to start over thanksgiving weekend - we'll be home together for 4 days and maybe he'll be ready then. Plus, the gerber training pants I ordered should be here!
I've heard great things about letting them take responsibility for their messes / accidents as well as when they need to use the potty. Anyone use that method and what were the results?
Jaymie - posted on 10/27/2008
That's funny mine is into Transformers too, well just because they're "Wobots" ha ha.
Good for your son for Potty Training!!! Jealous!
Good to hear he's doing well in school. I think sharing is hard for them, I'm sure your son will learn! Mine is just grasping the concept. He just started hitting though. Argh.
Jennifer - posted on 10/27/2008
My son is really into Transformers. He is potty trained! Yay! He does not share well with his little brother (15 months), but he's getting along well at school. He is very stubborn, but is usually very sweet:)
Jaymie - posted on 10/24/2008
I'm jealous! Mine just turned 3 on the 21st of October and were no where near potty trained...he says he needs to go potty AFTER he's already went in his diaper! I'm getting scared 'cause size 6 is the largest size diaper...is he going to have to go to Depends if he's still not potty trained in the next bit!?!?! ;)

My little ones are spending the next couple of days at their nanny's(grandma) house. My three y/o is potty trained. He loves his super hero underwear. We're still doing diapers at night but he's wants it off as soon as he gets up.
