So my son is 25 months old and he does not want anything to do with the potty... I don't want to use pull-ups since a lot of moms say it doesn't work... Please help I need some tips. He has accidents all the time since I have him in underwear during the day. He has always been somewhat constipated he poops once a day sometimes none. Thanks any advice will help...

ALL children potty train on their own schedules. My doctor has always been supportive of waiting until your child is ready. How many Kindergarten children do you know in diapers? My now seven year-old did not potty train until he was just shy of three and a half years-old. My three and a half year-old made great leaps and bounds about a year ago in potty training, but then regressed all the way back to nothing after some otherwise positive lifestyle changes.
You can fight with your child day in and day out until they are mostly potty trained, but they are bound to have accidents and it's 10x the work for you. My oldest was fully potty trained in less than 3 days and only ever had one (possibly two) accidents in the past 4 years and never a bed time one. Is it really worth it to push, push, push? Well, that's up to you. I'm saving my sanity for other things and changing diapers until then.

Boys take their time and I trained my boys just like you did. Try using cloth training pants with an inner liner. They are expensive but worth saving the sofa. I got mine from The Natural Baby. Check her out Rebecca has great products and she is very knowledgeable. Good luck

I have a 2 yr old daughter and it was tough getting her to use the potty . The way I got my dayghter to use the potty was I started taking her to the potty every 15 minutes no matter were we were to get her use to going to the potty. She got a little aggravated with it after awhile but eventually she got use to it and even started saying she wanted to go to the potty. The trick is you have to be consistent or toddlers will drop back into their old routine. There are also washable training pants that you can you can use that have the clothe material inside and the plastic training pants outside which give toddlers the underwear feel but the protection in the event if an accident.

Sounds like he is not ready yet. Wait until he is ready and wants to go on potty. Boys tend to be closer to 3 yrs. Before they are ready. The muscles they use to hold pee develop later the girls in general. Follow his lead. It will come it just may take time. Just like walking and talking it comes, you can encourage but can't force.

My son wasn't ready until 3 years old. I tried, but he was not interested AT ALL. I followed his lead and one day he just clicked. He first started peeing in the potty at 3years and at about 3years 3months he was pooping in the potty as well. When I felt that he understood when he had to go to the bathroom, I let him run around the house without pampers on. I had to clean up a few messes, but within a week or two he figured out what he had to do.
