Help me re-attempt to potty train, starting today!

So Mason was well onto being potty trained but with delivery of Sloane, etc... we kind of slacked off. Mason will let us know when he needs to go poop but its mostly when we catch him being all squirrly and trying to hide.

He will go pee in the toilet but most of the time when we put him on the actual toilet. He doesn't put up a fight at all, will just sit there until he goes.

Last weekend we took off the diaper and let him run around in a pair of sweat pants. He had a few accidents and we set a timer to ask him if he needed to go.

I am thinking today we will still remove the diaper and set the timer but instead of asking him if he needs to go, just say something like, "ok Mason, its time....."

ANY suggestions would be so helpful! Oh yeah, Mason is two, will turn three in April.

Thanks

Kaila wasn't potty trained until she was 3. Asking if they have to go didn't work for us, because of course they'll say no I put her in the Gerber training panties and told her frequently when it was time to try. She had some accidents, but the key for us was not using diapers/pullups at all. They can't feel the wetness. We also used a reward chart. Good luck!

My son was potty trained naked. It was winter, I cranked the heat up, so he was not cold, and undressed him from the waist down. I followed him all day with a potty, and as soon as he said he had to go, or he would look like he had to go (stopping from playing, reaching for his penis, etc) I would put the potty under his butt. I also asked if he had to go every hour or so.

It worked like a charm, in one day, after no other method worked (I tried the Pullups- he just peed in them and did not care, and underwear - he got very upset when he wet the underwear so we nixed these methods).

Oh yes, and M&Ms for rewards - like a fistful of them everytime he peed or pooped on the potty - I thought he was going to go in a sugar coma, but it worked - the delight to get a 20 M&Ms everytime was the clincher.

Good luck!

My Mason just one day started doing it.. not even sure what the trigger was.. but he was closer to 4 when it happened (hes 4 1/2 now) We tried the rewards, but they didn't work he does get treats for breakfast if he doesnt have night time accidents, though.. (donuts!) so hes very motivated to not wake up wet... but donuts didnt work for daytime stuff. We just pestered him constantly about going to the bathroom.

Both of my boys were stubborn little buggers and refused to potty train until they were ready. Add to the stubborness, neither really cared if they were messy, which made it even harder IMO. Both boys were trained at about 3 1/2, give or take. We had the kiddie potty in the bathroom and we would have both boys sit on it, see if they would go, didn't push it (mine would backpeddle if pushed). We'd even put the potty in the living room and let them sit on it while naked, watching tv. I think they were eventually 'trained' the same way we trained our puppy: took them/it to potty every 30 minutes regardless of their cues. We also didn't ask, just told them they were going potty. Zach, my younger son, was more stubborn. My current husband eventually got him trained. I'd hear stories of both of them falling asleep in the bathroom (Zach on the potty, my husband on the floor - he works third shift lol). Wonderfully for us, both boys were night trained the same day as day trained.

^ We did the naked thing to. For rewards, I taped several kinds of small individually wrapped candy on the bathroom door. If they peed, they got one treat, poop got two. We started with serious intent at about age 2 1/2, even though we had had the training potty in there way before then. Each one was different in terms of being fully trained but this method seemed to work for us

Thanks everyone!! It wasn't that he wasn't interested or would get mad, but would not let me know when he had to go.

I put him on the potty myself and he would go a few times but a majority of the time he would pee in his pajama bottoms and then he would tell me he was all wet and needed to be changed. He is getting the hang of being wet and knows that he doesn't like it and would ask for a diaper.

I am going to try naked from the waist down and taping the treats to the door method. He has had his portable potty for a good eight months now. We wanted him to get used to it first. He likes to use it for toy storage sometimes

I will try any suggestions We don't want to push him or feel like we are in a hurry but it's good to hear stories from other Moms.

Good luck! I'll be starting hardcore training with bubs soon. He'll go on the potty if I put him there, and ask for diaper changes if he's dirty... I just need to start setting a 30 min timer again, and get on top of things. And lots of coffee...

Abram was potty trained the summer before his 3rd b-day. But he was a super easy going kid. A friend of mine didn't have her daughter potty trained at all until the child was 4. I don't get that but ya know Evan may throw me a curve ball or 2 so.....

Good for you! I changed my daughter's diaper early y'day morning, and she was dry at naptime, so I put her on the potty. She went, and then I forgot to put her back on AFTER Then she didn't tell me anything until she peed in the diaper. Put her in training pants the rest of the day and set a timer for 40 minutes. She did great until close to 7, when she pooped in the training pants Guess we'll try again today.
