I started potty training my son two days ago but he won't pee in the potty. He is holding it for hours and hours, even through the night. He will pee about once every 24 hours and that is only after much crying because he doesn't want it to come out. I have put him back in diapers and he still holds it. He tells me that he needs to go pee in the potty about every five to ten minutes, but he still won't let go of the pee. Help!
You'd think that by boy number five I would have this all figured out, but this is a new one for me. Especially because he won't pee or poop in his diaper.

Load him up on fluids so that he can't hold it that long? Maybe he has an infection and it hurts to come out? If he doesn't have an infection now he could certainly get one from holding it that long. Maybe you could explain that to him?
