20 month old boys potty habits!

Sarah - posted on 06/21/2013 ( 2 moms have responded )




My son loves to run around naked at the min and enjoys peeing very much! The potty has been around a while and he sits on it now and then, he also follows both me and daddy to the bathroom and has a chat while we pee. The problem im having is he will stand over his potty holding his little fellow (in a fashion) and the pee gpes everywhere but the potty!! He refuses to do this on the big boy toilet tho how do I get him to get it in the potty? Thanks

I agree with Little Miss. But you also have to understand he is not even 2 years old yet. He is still learning how to do things and handle small and large motor skills. For him to perfectly hit the potty with his "little fellow" is not going to happen over night. He needs to be worked with and shown how to do this right not once or twice for a lot for a long period of time and dad is the best one to teach him that skill as it provides the model for him to follow. I actually had my son learn to pee standing up because he was taller than most boys his age (2-3) and he stood tall enough to aim into the toilet.

Have him sit and pee, or just take away the potty seat and have him use the regular toilet. Don't give him a choice.
