how do i get my 2yo son to stay dry and use the potty during the day, when he stays dry all night?

Set a timer to remind yourself when he needs to go. I started taking both my boys every 30 mins, then every 45, then every hour until they got it. I just put my 3rd boy up on the potty the other day and told him to grunt. When he did some came out and we made a big deal out of it. Maybe you could try the grunting thing lol. It worked for us!

he is staying dry at night because he is not drinking through out the night so there is nothing going in so there is nothing coming out. Watch for signs that he needs to go the bathroom such as him grabbing himself or him going and hiding when he going to the bathroom, try and put him in big boy underwear with his favorite cartoon characters on them and tell them that they dont want his pee on them, along with that take him to the bathroom and sit him on the toilet every 45-90 mins! Good luck!
