This is my third boy to train. I always started to consistently potty train at 3yo and was done (night and day) in 10 days or less. But this kid...yikes.
He turned 3 in January, we feel he was ready earlier but we were moving and wanted one big change at a time. Hind sight tells me that I should have just said that "big boys in new houses use the potty" but that is why hind sight is 20/20.
This kid doesn't follow anyone. He does not care what big brothers are doing. If they are around playing together and having fun, #3 is doing his own thing. And I try not to compare the kids because as boys they do that well enough on their own.
Right now on the weekends when I am home I remind him every 30 min and he is kicking and screaming but eventually goes. Then during the week when I am at work his father (staying home) or the in-laws (who watches them also) just put him in pull-ups. I think my only option is to take my vacation time at work to stay home and potty train, which in turn makes my life easier so I guess that can count.
Does anyone else have any suggestions/recommendations? Any help is greatly appreciated.
