I've been trying for months to potty train my son. He will be 3 in October and nothing seems to be working. I've tried pull ups, regular underwear, plastic underwear, and no underwear at all. I've tried the normal potty, his own potty, and the one that goes on the normal potty. I've tried the fruit loops in the toilet for him to aim at and even got those tinkle targets. We tried the reward system, getting overly excited when he does go. We've done the potty in the living room (where we spend most of our time). I tried letting him pick out his own underwear (Cars and Thomas). He just wants NOTHING to do with it. We had a good week where he would go potty but he wouldn't tell me if he needed to go..he would just sit on the potty and hang out and randomly would go (keep in mind he would be on the potty for 20-30 min sometimes before this would happen) so it's not like he would go sit on the potty and go when he needed to. He freaks out when we don't put a diaper on him and literally pouts for hours because of it. I'm just not sure what to do =/ Any help would be greatly appreciated.
