I am getting ready to potty train Aiden. He will be 2 on April 29th. He is absolutely obsessed with Elmo. I got him an Elmo potty that I'm about to introduce him too. I just want some great advice from successful moms. He has older twin siblings that he has been kind of curious about when they go to the bathroom. I just want some advice on how to approach it. The twins were 3 when their daddy and I got together so this is the first time i'm approaching the potty training adventure. :)

Im with Lianne. That potty training DVD was GREAT! Also, I used a chart that we stuck on the door of the bathroom and everytime he went he got a sticker. After he filled up two rows, (or whatever works for you) then we went to Walmart and he got a cheap toy. Once he was done training, we used the chart for good behavior instead of potty time. If you try too early, he may have a ton of accidents and then you can just hold off and try again later on when he is ready to not have accidents. I started at 18 months, but he had accidents everyday so I stopped until he turned 2 and then he pretty much trained himself with a little assistance. He said "no diaper" one day so I told him that he had to go in the toilet if he wanted to wear no diaper and that was that!
