Have you ever tried Cheerios? We done this with my second boy. Put the cereal in the toilet and ask him how many can hit LOL I know it may sound crazy but my son loved this game. Also he will go when he is ready :) I have 2 boys and I learned that from the first one. Be patient and make it fun. Good Luck

Thanks everyone! With my daughter it only took a week and that was that! Now with my soon its been 1 1/2 months. I praise him every time he go's on the potty and he sing the potty song. I've tried sweets every time he went and it did work for a couple of days then he was over it.

My son our took a little longer to train then our daughter. We use to let him go to the potty with daddy, to see how he used it. Because seriously he want to mimic everything he did. And that seemed to work perfect, and he was out of pull-ups totally by the time he was 23 months "Day & Night".....

My son was hard to train as well, so we devised a plan, a little Pavlov's theory, lol. We sat him on the potty when we thought it was close to time for relief with a box of smarties in hand and when he relieved himself we clapped, said big boy and gave him a few smarties. Some times it worked and other times it didn't. When it all comes down to it, the light just comes on one day. Perhaps the plan worked, maybe it didn't. Good luck!
