Potty training

April - posted on 08/21/2016 ( 2 moms have responded )




HELP! I started potty training late with my son (silly me, I thought he would show some signs!). We were doing pretty good, then we took a road trip. No he won't tell us when he has to go #2. Any ideas to get him back on track?

I don't know how late is late, but there's really no such thing as 'potty training too late' because under the right conditions a child will potty train themselves when they are ready... like Sarah mentioned.

My son potty trained #1 -- no problem. For #2 he did not want to use the toilet and waited until we put him in a diaper at night. I tried during a hurricane season when I was home for a week keeping him out of a diaper and he ended up holding it. I asked him how old he thought he should be before doing it in the toilet and he told me. I reminded him that when he got to that age he would be ready. And frequently before he turned that age. Sure enough, at the end of the day of his birthday, I reminded him. He sat down, looked confused for a minute and then did it.
