I need some advise. I potty trained my two year old son, he was goin on his own all the time. He wouldn't even tell me any more that he needed to go, he just went. Now I have a three week old baby and he has completely stopped going. I have no Idea what to do to get him interested in going potty again. Any ideas?

Make sure you give him the same amount of attention your giving the new baby and try rewards for staying dry. He can bring you items for he baby too, like a fresh diaper, wipes, a change of clothes...etc he can be helpful at this age and he gets attention.

i have tried all sorts of different bribes. they dont work. He was throwing huge fits over the smallest thing the first few days but he is over it now and as sweet as ever. The only thing he hasn't gone back to is using the potty. I think it makes him feel on more equal ground with his little brother or something and I am at the end of my line trying to get him to stop goin in his pants

Encourage him with stickers or something. Children will sometimes revert when a new baby is in the house, they feel they aren't getting attention.
