I desperately need a help and some informations, advice or sharing a success stories for potty training. My first child is about 2-year-old now, a boy and recently i've been trying to potty train him.
He could tell me that he did 'papaw (pooo-poo)', or pee, but he would tell me after he did it in his pants :(
I've been trying not putting any pull-ups during the day ( i just put him on his regular loose-pants), set the timer every 15 minutes, then take him to the bathroom, encouraged him to use his potty train chair but nothing happened. He refused to pee (saying 'no-no') and even refused to use his potty chair (didn't want to sit on it, but he will use it for playing). So I've tried teach him pee by standing..but again even though I set the timer every 15 minutes, he still won't pee. He'll pee in between those time! Overall, he still pee or poo in his pants now. Like today he probably had more than 10 accidents (both pee and poo-poo). And cleaning up not fun at all. I'm so getting frustrated.
Has anyone experience something like this? I need guidance/tips/etc what the best method I should use to teach my boy to use his potty train.What should I do?
Thanks so much for the help!
Note : I have additional question though : bare bottom method vs underpants method... Which one is more effective?
