My son stays dry all night and wears undies to bed. He poops only in his little potty. But he still has pee accidents, usually when we are out.. unless I battle him onto the public potty and force him to go. Any advice? Maybe he is just scared of the big loo, or doesn't want to miss anything? I know he could hold it, because he holds it 11 hours at night! And he holds his poo poo till we get home and goes straight for his potty. I do use a fold out potty cusion when we go out and he will go if i force him and bribe him too ( but not without a battle!). He'd rather pee his pants than go on the potty. I know he is very young to be fully potty trained, but we seem so close! He is actually 2 in few days. I don't expect him to be fully accident free, some kids still have the odd accident until they are 7. I just would try to help ease him on the public pottys. It would be nice to have fewer accidents and less of a battle. Right now it's either the battle or the accident( and honestly in public, the battle sucks more than the accident as people stare like, well you all know!) He loves wearing undies. I always ask him what he wants to wear, diaper or undies , and he always chooses undies. But I have to carry pants around because I know a accident is bound to happen. I hope if i keep plugging away at it he will catch on, he does say ewwwwww when he pees his pants and let's me clean him up.
