I have tried at 18 months, 24 months to potty train our son. It just wasn't happening..... :bonk:
Right before Thanksgiving '04 I tried again. Well, he has had two accidents since that time.......I did give him the benefit of the doubt and kept him in pull-ups or diapers at night. In Jan. right before he turned 3, he started sleeping in regular underwear. I didn't want to jinx myself at first but he has done so good and I'm so proud of him! YAy!!! :dance: :dance:
Now he better not regress after I made this thread......... ;)
I guess all mom's know the excitement I'm feeling who have trained their own babies. I'm just glad we made it through......... :)

:woohoo: :dance: :dance: Jaime-as the mother of two boys, granted they are grown now, I remember potty training my oldest...ughhh...little boys are so difficult. It is awesome when they do learn though!! Congrats, you should be proud of both of you. Him for learning and you for having the patience to teach!! Now there is no stopping him-he is gonna grow up fast. Oh, and a little secret someone told me, all those pants that didn't fit last year, try em again now that the diaper is gone, sometimes some of em might fit him again!!

:dance: :dance: I have no idea how to potty train little boys so my turn is coming, my girls were a piece of cake. Keep your tips fresh in your mind I will need them in the future.

I would've tried that tip Rhea, but he is so long-legged and is very thin. He turned 3 in Jan. and just now his 2T pants are staying up on their own. I'm afraid to search for deals now on the net.....afraid I'll be stuck with it and he wouldn't get to wear them.
Stas-I'm sure other people have thought of my technique but I just told him that once this bag of diapers were gone, he would have to use the potty cause the store didn't carry them in his size anymore. He kept repeating that for a while while he was training and it stuck! I know it wouldn't work everytime a child is to be trained.
And a friend of mine who's mother is a teacher of 35 years said that was the best advice and she had never heard a parent be so creative........ :biglaugh: (Nice compliment for me, I was thrilled, being a first time mom and all.)
Anyway.......now that you know, maybe both of us can remind each other when it's time to train your big guy........hugs........

Now if I could get Lindsey to quit regressing--just after we have months where she is just wearing panties, all it takes is talking to Chris on the phone or seeing piictures of him and she backslides. Those Pull Ups aren't cheap either. Her pediatrician told me not to worry, that she has been through alot in the past 6-9 months (moving twice, going from full time day care to just preschool, Daddy leaving, at home with Mom)and they're not worried. Yup, my logical nurse mind knows that dude, but if I hear from one more family member that I am a rotten(all Chris' side)Mom because Lindsey isn't fully potty trained I am going to scream. :cussing: :headbang: I just can't wait to do the happy dance and get these meddling people out of my child rearing.
Hugs, and congrats to you Jamie,

It'll happen.....Lindsey and you have gone through enough........you sure don't need family telling you that you're a rotten mom.......that's just rude. And I hear ya, those pull-ups are costly. Take care and I hope you have a peaceful weekend. :grouphug:
Oh Barb-tell your mom-in law to back off. I am a firm believer that each kid learns EVERYTHING at their own pace and that includes potty training. And Jaime-what a really cool thing to do about not carrying the diapers in his size. Very creative. My youngest (18 now) was a tall chubby little thing so the pant trick worked with him. My oldest was a little thing and skinny like your son so it didn't work with him either. Just thought I would pass on my "mother wisdom :biglaugh: ". Anyways...congrats again-they grow up so dang fast dont they :(.

Boys, as I know, are hard to potty train. I use to put cherrios in the toilet and told them to aim! (I know, it sounds funny, but hey, it worked!!) My eldest son was trained by the time he was 2, but my youngest, he had so many health problems , he was in and out of the hospital too many times to count that it was hard to train him, and when he was, he was almost 4.
