How to Potty Train with new baby?

Amber - posted on 06/19/2012 ( 2 moms have responded )




My son older son Tucker is 2 years old and 5 months when he was about 20 months i began to start potty training him, he started to grasp the concept and he was at least peeing on the potty, sometimes on good days pooping on it too! Then about 3 weeks ago i had another baby, Reed and now Tucker wants nothing to do with the potty! I'v heard it's from jealously but it's just darn ridiculous! He refuses to wear pull ups he takes them off and brings me a diaper and says "put it on mama" I have tried to just let him be in underwear but all does is sit in his own filth and/or just holds a diaper up to me and crys! PLEASE HELP more advice on potty training i would like to have just one child in diapers!

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Do not put him in diapers, tell him that he is a big boy and wears underwear and the diapers are for the baby. Take him to the potty often (maybe every hour or so), have him take his wet clothes off when he has an accident, as long as you don't give in to him, this should be over soon. Also make sure you reserve time with just him so he knows that he is still loved, during this time you can read books together or color/paint. The best time is while the new baby is sleeping.
