ok so my son doesnt fully talk yet and is still wearing diapers but whenever he goes in his diaper he'll put his hands down it or try taking it off... i was told that that was a sign to start potty training. since he cant tell me when he has to go and only gives a sign after he went im not sure how to start the process

any advice???

The one thing I can say I actually like about base housing is there is not a single room with carpet. If you want carpet in your house you better go out and buy some area rugs. lol. The blessing about having linoleum everywhere is when there is an accident unless it is in or on a toy, it is easy to clean up. My daughter (twin to my son) was actually in big girl undies before the baby was born (she was just over 2) but regressed big time when the new brother came along. All is going well now though and I am hopeful that I will have both completely potty trained by the time Daddy comes home next spring.

my daugher turned 2 in april and is now potty trained durng the day! was a total shock, was 1 day i thought she might be ready as she was doing the same and taking off her nappy after she went and i thought ok, she doesnt like it wet, its a good start but now for her to notice when she got to go! then the next day i literally left her nappy off all day and viola, she sort of held her noony and i sat her on the potty and she did a wee wee, she clapped and said wee wee on potty and we had big squeezy clever girl cuddles lots of clapping and cheering and the smile on her face was priceless, enough to melt anyones heart!
since then its been sooo easy, but after a few days of having nothing on i tried to put knickers and trousers on her to get used to her wearing clothes and knowing to take them off, most of the time she remembers to take them off, today only 1 wet trousers! so such an achievment!
but i think this is a sign that if not right now but very very soon your son will be ready to make that change onto a potty!

but ill give u a bit of advise, make sure u stock up on washing powder and carpet shampoo :-) lol

good luck xxxx

I have a soon to be 3 year old boy with a twin sister. I have been working with his potty training for the past year but only lately has he been playing an active part in it. I got him his own potty to train on to start with and pull ups. Then every hour I would say "Potty Break!" with enthusiasm. His sister has been wearing big girl undies for the past month during the day with only an occasional accident and now that he is showing signs that he is aware that he has to go ("POTTY!" takes off running. Only does this maybe once a week) I am going to start putting him in big boy undies during the day so he is more aware that he is wet and hopefully start using the potty more. This is also recommended by the EIC (Early Intervention Center) who sees my son for visual impairment. Good luck and I hope all goes well with minimal stress.

Hey there Vanessa! Im Missy, mother of soon to be 5 children, 3 of whom are boys! when it came time to potty training them I let them have their diaper off during the day....yeah theres gonna be accidents but he wont like the feeling of being wet and you can also look for signs hes about to go....like for example my boys would get a little erection before they had to pee...lol so when you see that just put him on the potty right away all the while cheering him on! Then if he goes make a big deal about it, dance around with him and clap your hands, maybe sing a little song. Tell him what a good boy he is and eventually he'll pick up that peeing in the potty is a good thing and he'll want to do it more often. I hope that helps :)
