I potty trained my 2 1/2 year old step daughter when she was almost 2 and she got it! But I have also potty trained little boys and I think their favorite thing was when i would put a piece of toilet paper in the toilet and tell them to sink it and they thought it was fun but I would keep them in big boy underwear as well. Hope this helps!

I just finished potty training my 2 1/2 year old daughter. I started by putting her in big girl underwear and taking her potty every 30 minutes or so. I know it sounds crazy but it worked, within two days she got it! Now she is asking every time she has to go potty without me having to remind her. Your son might have a few accidents but just keep doing it. If he does I wouldn't go back to putting him in diapers that would make it harder next time you try. In other words once you start just keep it up till the end. It might take less that you think. I still put my girl in pull ups during the night. I will take that next step in a few more weeks. Good Luck! Don't stress it!
