ooh I know what you mean!! I just had my 2nd son 8 weeks ago, so mobility was definetely an issue!! Being pregnant, you might want to hold off on training until your newest bundle arrives, the stress of a new sibling can sometimes cause backpedaling in the potty training department. Boys are very frustrating, so all i can say is patience, young grasshopper, he'll get it eventually, but the more you push, the more he'll resist

How old is he? Our son would have stayed in diapers forever if we would have let him. lol! I went to Target and we picked out some little "Cars" underwear. And I picked out some dollar bin "prizes". Just small stuff, but something to reward going in the toilet. He loved that! It was still a struggle, but within a week or so we had it! It's sooooo nice not changing diapers anymore.



As for the peeing standing up, mine wouldn't do it until he saw his little friend doing it. So, you might have to try that. lol!!

The easiest way to train a boy is to bring him into the bathroom with you when yyou need to go....My hubby and I have with our 2 year old son since about the time he was born....he just barely turned 2 and "goes potty".....as for peeing standing up, aiming for cheerios in the bowl works great!! also, use a lot of praise when he gets it right, but don't criticize him if he backtracks.....have patience, with boys it can be a struggle, but they go at their own pace. and once he gets it, iit's like a light switch....one day he'll be in diapers, the next he'll be in underoos!!
