He has Scooby, Spiderman and Batman underwear, he had toys he specifically chose which were offered for using the potty for an entire day. He has had stickers with special posters, candy, and now even a puppy or gerbil offered if he will start using the potty. He has been home with just me for almost a year now, and I think it would help if he were around other kids who is the potty (but who knows). He is an only child and likes being a baby. He was told he will always be our baby even when he wears underwear. He might wear underwear for one, or once two, visits to the potty. But then he doesn't want them anymore. We tried pull-ups, he treated them like a diaper. He will wear the diaper until it is leaking and still not care, so the wet feel of pull-ups doesn't phase him. And he is in no hurry to let you change a stinky diaper. They say wait until he is ready. But he is tall kid and I feel foolish putting a diaper on him. I've tried letting him run around naked, because he likes to take all of his clothes off to use the potty. But just yesterday he peed on the carpet and then I asked if he had any more and wanted to use the potty and he said no. I asked again a short while later because it looked like he had to go and he again said no. Then after a bit he starts peeing on the floor again...a lot. What can I do? I am so tired of the diapers thing.
