It sounds a lot like my DS. He's just not there, but we're doing things to introduce the idea of the potty - rewarding for asking to sit on it, telling us that he's poopy, etc. I had him in training pants (the underwear-type, not CD trainers) the other day and it seemed effective in cuing him that something wasn't right when he peed in them. He never asked to go to the potty before wetting himself, but at least he was aware that he was wet & didn't like it. So we would take off the wet pants, sit on the potty & talk, and then put new pants on. I'm going to try more of that in the future. We're about to head out of town for a week and I didn't want to progress it only to have him back in diapers 100% of the time.

On another note -- the CD trainers don't seem to be doing much to assist in the potty training arena. He doesn't seem to treat them any differently that his regular CDs.
