I have two and half year old boy that was doing well with potty training, we were wearing underware during the day and pull ups at night. He had the flu recently and while he was puking he fell in the toilet head first. I was there just caught him just in time but, now he has a fear of peeing in the toilet what should I do??? Suggestion are really appreciated.

Get a peter potty!  It's this tiny little urinal...we have one and both of our boys LOVE IT!  And much easier to aim into so less clean up for mommy.

The small potty sounds good, and you could also pick up one of those padded, toddler-sized seat inserts that fits on top of the regular seat.  They're easy to lift on and off by himself, and are perfectly fitted to little buns.

Awww, poor little guy! How scary! When my daughter first turned 2, we were potty training her on the regular toilet with a seat on top. She was fine with that, until one day she was sitting there with the bathroom window open, and her daddy accidentally sprayed her with the garden hose through the window! It wa a long time before she would sit on the b"big potty" but she was perfectly fine with a little potty chair.

Now she's almost 3, and she's fine with the big potty again.

Maybe you should try using a small potty? it is smaller,and has no water in it,so maybe he won't be scared.Good luck!
