My son is 18 months old. I've been getting him used to the little potty we have. He is fine sitting on it with his diaper on but as soon as I take it off he cries. After sitting on the potty for a little while he has marks on his bottom. Do I need a different potty? I don't know if it's hurting him or not. He shows signs that he's ready but he's scared of the potty. If I catch him trying to go #2 and put him on the potty he'll hold it until he gets a diaper back on. I'm also thinking about buying him thick toilet training underwear (not training diapers) so he could feel he's wet. Any advice would be helpful.
