My son is potty training and doing really well at home when he is not wearing anything (pants, underwear or diaper) when I put underwear or a diaper on him he has accidents. What's going on.. any idea's..???

My son is the same way. He's been doing GREAT while running around naked, but try putting underwear or a diaper on him, and he'll go in his pants.

The only thing that I can think of is that he has gotten so used to going in his diaper that it's become natural and when you put underwear on him, it's kind of the same feeling as a diaper, so he reverts to that.

How to change this, I don't know. Like I said, I've been having the same problems with my son. We generally don't go out much (especially during the winter) so it hasn't been much of an issue.

The only suggestion I have is when you put him in underwear, remind him constantly. Every 5-10 minutes, ask if he has to go potty. And then every 30-45 minutes, take him to the bathroom to sit on the potty, whether he goes or not. It'll probably just take time.

I'm hoping someones else has some other suggestions :)

Good luck
