Work on the one that is most interested first. My TB were potty trained 5 months apart. The one just wasnt ready. Then one day, the switch flipped and he was instantly trained. Unfortunately, you just give them the tools and they decide when they are ready. Good luck!!

I have boy/ girl twins and they are just starting out @ 26 months. I posted on my local twin group and received comments on a couple parents having their twins potty trained at 18 months as if I was slacking lol. We are trying the 3 day boot camp but it really is not for us I don't think. It also be a while I am doubtful 3 days and we will be diaper free. I went 100 percent diaper free day and night with multiple accidents. Feeling overwhelmed and the gals at my local twin group thought it was some sort of competition and offered no help or tips. I am thinking we will do a much more less stressful version. I am open to any other tips as well.

I have used the book "Potty training boys" which has a very easy laid back approach that takes it slow. My boys are 28 months, we started about July 4th, and I think I can say they are trained now. I still put them in a pullup when we go out, but it is only very rarely that they use it. I had one that kept on wanting a diaper for poop, but finally he decided to use the potty for that too. Those 3 day and boot camp methods just are too rigid and stressful for us.

My biggest piece of advice, don't push it. They are in control of their body when it comes to eliminating. I introduced the potty at 2, and gently encouraged them . As in, "Let's go sit on the potty". If they didn't want to, I didn't force the issue. Finally around 3.5, something just clicked and they consistently went to the potty.

The problem with just sticking them in undies is unless you have all tile floor, it doesn't work. It gets to be extremely messy and even more frustrating. Just remember all of theses situations are what worked for the indidvidual who posted it. It might be completely different for you. It will happen. Be consistent and encouraging!

With my boys I just stuck them in undies. And took them together all the time. One week at home only. With plenty of extra clothes if you do leave: ) good luck.

Let them see you use the potty, Take them in there with you and keep showing them until they want to do it for themselves. Make sure they have a potty of their own.

My boys are 4,5 years old and the best advice I got is to let them sit for a no1 and no2 because firstly they will sprinkle all over and secondly when they can stand and peepee they don't want to sit down for a poo... I tried training them together but the one didn't want to sit on the potty so I left him and only trained one and 6 months later I trained the other one.
