Try putting some fruit loops in there an make it a game so he thinks it's fun! That way he will enjoy going pee . It worked for my son !! Good luck Hun

Thanks Sarah for your reply, I shall definitely consider waiting until we are all settled with newborn. He starts nursery 3 days a week in september aswel so thats another change for him so is a difficult one with knowing when is best to try. We also plan on moving house at the beginning of november X

I would wait until after baby is born and everyone has adjusted. As Nancy stated that often times they will revert back after baby arrives. I would not put a time frame on it. Starting after baby is born and everyone has adjusted allows you to not feel stressed and needing to have it done before baby. That stress may make the process longer and harder. What you could do know is just have a little potty sitting out (if you don't already). If he wants to sit and try let him, if not no big deal. Waiting until after baby is born and everyone is adjusted is going to be easier on you as well. Trying to help with potty duties when you are sitting and feeding baby is hard to do. Get into a routine with the new baby and then add in the routine of potty training.

I tried about 3 months ago by just letting him walk around the house without a nappy and getting him to sit on potty every 15 minutes which he did do but never did a wee in it and then he had one accident because the potty wasnt nearby. I then decided to try again a few months down the line as i needed to transfer him from cot to bed which he has adjusted to really well and didnt want to give him too much change at once so now i want to try with the potty once again x

This might work, but you also should know that sometimes, when the new baby comes along, those who are potty trained revert back to using diapers for the attention it gets them. Have you tried potty training him before now? How did that go?
