How is potty training going for you?

My son sometimes tells me he has to potty and other times he doesn't.

That's exactly how my son started at first, but hang in there. He's completely potty-trained now in undies. The real change happened when we stopped the pull-ups and used the thick cotton training pants. As many people on CoM have mentioned, there will be accidents, but after 2 weeks, we were done! He was in pull-ups for 2 months making snail-like progress, but I really recommend those training pants. Now he is in Thomas the Train real undies, but those are more absorbent to get you started. Can be exhausting, I know, but there is an end! Good luck!

we are the same the problem we have mainly i that he will tell us he needs to go then we sit on the toilet but 80% of the time he will not go and will hold it in until we are off the potty then go . frustrating but Im glad he has 50% of it down heheheh at least its progress small but in the right direction some days we are really lucky and get 3 or 4 on the toilet others not one most of the time it is 1 or 2 my husband and I are both off work for 6 days after new year and are going to try the timer method of putting him on the toilet every 20 minutes see how we go fingers crossed for me
