Help potty training my son?

[deleted account] ( 1 mom has responded )

My son will be 2 1/2 at the end of February. He is aware of the sensation before he has to pee because he will look down at his penis before peeing. He also goes and hides and squats down before pooping so he knows when he has to go. He just refuses to. I've tried getting him to do it sitting down, standing up, bribing him with treats and stickers, reading to him on the toilet. He will do it a few times and then refuse. Does anyone have any tips for getting him to use the toilet consistently?

I also tried a few of the things you did with my son. The thing I found that works the best is to put him in underwear during the day. Obviously at first they are going to have accidents. My son thought it was gross when he peed or pooped himself so he started going on the toilet. He is still in pull-ups at night, but he stays in underwear all day and goes to the potty on his own.
