This worked for my DS

http://www.pottytrainingconcepts.com...n-One-Day.html

I didn't use a doll, just talked to him about it. When he had an accident and we practiced going to the potty, we started from different areas of the house and went through all the motions (turn on light, pull down pants, sit on potty, pull up pants, turn off light, etc.) each time.

DS was #1 trained in one day (2 accidents, I think). It took about a month for him to do #2 though...I think he was too tense sitting down and he just had to learn how to relax.

Re: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Help me potty train my DS

My first son didn't PL until after he was three; he seemed like he understood the whole concept, so I did naked time at home along with a sticker chart and maybe some treats (I think marshmallows but, to be honest, I don't totally remember). He had a few accidents, but was fully day trained within a month.

My second son has not been as interested, I think partly b/c he loves his cloth diapers and is not such a fan of his undies (Trimsies Trainers I made). But I've been doing the naked time during the day, he gets a candy corn and a sticker on his chart when he goes. He isn't always paying attention though; he was doing naked time yesterday and had a small pee pee accident in the dining chair, but then I took him to the potty to finish. He will definitely pee on the grass outside, doesn't pee the pool any more (but also won't wear his swim trunks )

We did the three day potty training with DS in Feb (he was two in October). It worked very well. He still has occasional accidents (mostly when he skips nap) but has for the most part been just handling the potty on his own for several months now. Basically you let the child throw away the diapers and go straight to undies, with lots of reminders to let you know when they need to use the potty. I'd recommend giving it a shot if you really want to train in a short amount of time.

Re: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Help me potty train my DS

IME, wait. Don't jump at the first sign of anything. Saying after the fact is a good indication that he is becoming aware but probably not that he has control. With both my boys they had plenty of naked time over the course of time just because I belive it is good for the skin to not be in a diaper all day. They may have been a little more aware because of this because when they did have an accident there was an immediate response of me cleaning it up/ talking about it. I waited a few months after my boys started showing readiness signs to actually "train" them. We went straight to undies w/ pullups/diapers at night. My ds1 is 5.5 and day trained within 3 weeks and only 2 poopy accidents (thank god!) he is just now night training because the boy is an extremely heavy sleeper. I started training ds2 on june 5th ( he is 29 mo) and he has not had an accident in 2 1/2 weeks. He also wakes dry and pees a ton when he gets up so I think he will be night trained before his brother.


eta: for both boys the first few days were spent at home or grandma's naked, the next few undies only then after that fully clothed.
Both use the toilet at home and in the beginning I kept a potty in the back of the van for emergencies.

It's never too early, IMO.

Re: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Help me potty train my DS

Boys, more so than girls, tend to just have better things to do than stop and go to the potty. The biggest trick is to find what motivates your little guy. Pushing will turn it into a power struggle, and you absolutely do not want that.

We're currently in the middle of training DS2, who will be 3 in September. His current favorite motivator is food coloring. A couple of weeks ago, he had to go just after I had cleaned the toilet, and the blue cleaner was still in the water. He didn't want to pee in it, so I told him that if he did, it would turn green. So now we keep a bottle of bluing (used food coloring instead if you can - it doesn't stain like the bluing does) on the shelf above the toilet and add a couple of drops just before he goes. He thinks it's incredibly cool to pee on the drops - gives him a target, and it makes the color swirl through the water.

He actually prefers to go potty when we're out - he's thrilled with toilets that flush themselves. Also, the family bathroom at our local Walmart has a kid-sized toilet that he thinks is awesome.
