Hey fellow moms! I have 3 boys ages 1,2 &3. I've been working with my oldest son on potty training for about a year with very little luck. He has used the potty several times over the past year but its never a regular thing. For some reason he HATES to use his potty even though when he goes, he's very proud of himself. I've tried the reward system, candy, sitting with him and reading to help in relax, giving him a book and leaving him alone... So many different things and nothing is working! I've recently discovered that he has a problem with constipation and it hurts sometimes when he tries to poop so we go through a lot of diapers with "smears" in them because he tries to hold it. (sorry for the graphics! Lol) another thing is he has not yet peed standing up, only sitting. Does anyone have any alternative tips for me to try?? I would really appreciate any suggestions or feedback! Thanks mamas!
