My 2 yr old son is potty trained in the house during awake hours. HOWEVER, he needs to wear diapers when we go out in public b/c he doesn't use the adult toilet yet. Whenever I have tried to place him on the toilet, he seems scared. He has also shown little interest in standing to pee. I have heard of some people carrying a small toilet seat around to use in public restrooms, but I don't really care to do that. He also would need a stood to be able to stand and pee in the toilet. He has watched his dad, but still isn't interested? ANY ideas? How do you make the transition???

I found this cute little picture book that helped my son's transition tremendously. Find it on Amazon under "TEENY TOTTY" or go directly to their website www.LoewenHerz-Creative.com/Teeny-Totty. Moving our children from potty to toilet can be almost as difficult as getting them on the potty in the first place. Any bit of support helps! With warmth and sensitivity, this picture book guides little boys and girls through the challenges and rewards of transitioning from a potty to a grown-up toilet. It also includes a helpful note to parents. Good luck!!! (P.S.: it's also available as an eBook)

I have a daughter and I am having this issue also. She seems deathly afraid of the big potty, I put her potty seat on the big potty, show her its still her little potty, and then sit her on it, and she cries "no mama, hold you mommy!" which is Jade talk for pick me lady, I don't use the big potty. lol. I am going to keep trying to put her on it though. I even put her on it and the I sit facing her on the stool and put my arms around her, and she still isn't interested. It's crazy, Good Luck!!

If he doesnt like the potty there might not be one. you might want to try and get him used to useing the big potty at home first. you could get a potty seat and a stoot for him to use at home. my daughter like the big potty better than the little one because of those extra 2 little things. Just make a big deal out of it by saying something like oooh my you are a big boy now and big boys like you and daddy use the big boy potty. I trained my younger brother oooh my about 10 years ago and he was scared of the potty but he loved it when i put cheerios in the potty and told him to sink the battleships. im sorry i dont have any more ideas because i have 2 girls and thats all i remember from potty training my little brother hope this helps at least a little
