There’s a book called “oh, crap! Potty training “. A fast read. So effective for my boys anyway. Trained at 24 and 25 months!
Yes, elimination communication. it makes complete sense but a lot of hands on. Worth it though.
Maybe try observing his non verbal cues.
I use EC Elimination Communication. You should search some videos. It’s constant work but seems to work with just sounds
It took my son to be fully potty trained at the age of 4. Boys r much harder to train then girls. Girls r much easier. But I do a reward system. And at the end of each week when he goes to the bathroom I give him a reward(like chocolate, a toy, something he wants) and it works for my son to this day. I also tell him everyday to remind him “make sure yu poop and pee in the toilet td” and he listens and understands what I’m talking abt and he does it!
I just started potty training my 14 month old daughter and whenever we're home she uses the potty for both pee and poop. I started her off by putting her on the potty first thing in the morning, completely naked and telling her it's time to use the potty. Let's go pee. She ended up getting up and peeing on the floor. I had her watch me clean it up while praising her for going pee but telling her that she needs to do it on the potty. I sat her on the potty 2 hrs later and she went pee. Every 2 hrs I sit her on the potty and she uses it. Now for poop... She hasn't had any accidents on the floor but it was tougher to figure out when she needs to go. She was usually in mid poop and I'd come running with the potty scaring her. Lol but now 2 weekends later she poops and pees on the potty and will say potty and walk to the bathroom when she needs to go.
How's your potty training coming along? Done with diapers yet?
I started by putting him big boy underwear and every hour or 30 minutes you take him to the bathroom. I made it a game. Like hey I’m going to race you. I’m going to pee first. And he started peeing in the toilet. Now it’s just a habit
I just want to start off by saying it’s never to early. Some kids start speaking late and some early either way they find ways to communicate don’t they? Right so if you feel comfortable try it it’s something that’ll have to be a routine for sure and you’ll kind of have to guess at this point. I’d do like what the 1st person said and if you give them a drink of something I’d put them on some what right after good luck!
Luckily, a child doesn't necessarily need to be able to speak (or hear) to learn a new life skill like potty training. Non verbal and non hearing and non seeing babies learn potty training all the time - without ever speaking or hearing a word. As long as a toddler can understand simple words, requests & commands they can learn to use the potty! Self initiating or self prompting and toileting independence is a skill that typically develops later. You cant rely on your little cutie to go potty on their own or to tell you they need to go potty or request to go to the bathroom. That part doesn't commonly come automatically for a toddler. We cant rely on a toddler to "tell us" they need to go potty. Self initiating is a skill that typically develops later in the potty training process. You'll find lots of valuable tips and helpful ideas in my potty training video series. They're free on my youtube channel and they're only 10 minutes! https://youtu.be/dl9tOmqESRw
what are the signs for potty training & can you tell the process how you initially did the training. My daughter is 2 but she only says 2 words in combination but never lets me know when she does one🤷♀️
I tried when my son was 2yrs 3mths, I was 6.5mths pregnant and it was a disaster. We tried when he was 2.5yrs and it took a few weeks. He is now 2yrs 10mths and is toilet trained for day and night for almost 2mths now. We had the potty out from the first time we tried so he became familiar with it being in the bathroom. We used a reward chart and he got a sticker everytime he went. We changed it to everytime he did a poo when he became more consistent and then just overnight when we moved to training for overnight. He got to choose his reward at the start so he knew what he was working towards. We went cold turkey at 2.5yrs and we had 3-4days of constant accidents but he became fairly comfortable/confident on what he had to do. He also randomly started going straight on the toilet at my mums by himself so we took the potty away about 2wks in and he's been going on the toilet by himself. I'd did find having him comfortable in understanding what we were doing vital in ensure success. There is no need to rush!
My 2 year old son can communicate but don't think he's fully ready as he won't tell me when he needs to go to the toilet. I've been trying to get him used to the idea of sitting on the toilet (with a training seat). Initially he hated it so much and would stiffen up, the one day he warmed up to it (lasted about a week), and now we're back at square one. I'm so confused as to what has happened that he is refusing to sit on it after doing so well 😭
The secret to toilet training is your child’s readiness for it and your relaxed and positive state of mind. Hope this helps 🎈 https://sueatkinsparentingcoach.com/2018/05/toilet-training-made-easy/
I would love some advise. My daughter is 2 and a half and I'm trying to slowly get her into potty training without pressuring her. I did a day where I had her in undies and naturally she didn't make it to her potty at all through thay period but she seems to hate it when she pees herself. She hates it even if she spills a bit of juice on herself and even cries, I can't figure out why. Since that day I keep asking her if I can put her undies on instead of the nappy and encouraging her to use the potty but she refuses. She's actually brought a clean nappy to me and asked me to put it on her. I just dont know if I should be doing more but I don't want to pressure her too much. I talk to her about it alot and encourage her. Any advice from other mums on this?
My son hates having anything spilled on him and when we started potty training him we bought him some underwear and he hated peeing on himself but refused to use the toilet. So one day I just sat in the bathroom with him until he went I the toilet and when he did I made the absolute biggest deal about it. Praising him and giving him his favorite treat which is a popsicle and after that day he started using the potty. For an entire month I rewarded him and after that he's only ever had one accident and it was cuz he was watching a kinda scary cartoon. He's been potty trained for 7 months now!

I kept a potty out all day and let him run around with no nappy on and if he had an accident would just say oh look we use the potty but never say anything negative about him having accidents but when he used the potty I would always make it a big deal so he got excited to do it again I started when he was 15 months so he couldn’t really verbally tell me when he needed it x
I put my kiddo on the potty every 30 ish mins and put a little educational video on for him while he sits on his potty Nd he normally goes within like 2-5 mins
We also started once my son turned one so he is still learning but he does pretty good he's 15 months now
Hi my son is two and im trying to potty train him i got the peeing almost down pact but the pooping is another issue what can i do to make him realize he should poop in the potty ?
We started training yesterday. I have a 2.5yo. He too isn't a big talker but he recently exploded with his vocabulary. Anyway he's gone through phases of telling us when he's pooped in his diaper and has recently been telling us every single time and then runs to his bedroom for a dc, so we've decided to give it a try. I have no by the book idea of what I'm doing so kind of going between making him sit on it but also not burning him out so letting him lead the way too. I'm also doing the reward system. He peed twice in the toilet yesterday and probably 6 times NOT in the toilet. So far this morning he's peed twice and neither trip has been to the toilet 🥴 Giving it a solid 4 days and if it's not going to happen we'll take a pause for a while
Oh crap potty training book 1000000%
Hi Everyone, I’ve started my 18 month old with the potty. Well I think we’ve had it since she was about 15 months. She will sit on in the morning if we put her on it and most of the time does a wee. She’s done a poo once or twice on it. But sometimes when I sit her on it after lunch or tea she will not stay sat or if she has nappy off before or after bath she will sit on potty but then go and wee in the corner or something 🙈 She gets the excitement when she does on potty though because she claps or says hurray. How can I encourage her not to wee on floor? 🤣🤣🙈
Be patient and soft spoken. Never yell over accidents and use only positive reinforcement
Mine is about to be three and he just started showing interest in potty training
I taught mine how to sign for potty (ASL) and I sat in the bathroom with him all day on the toilet until he went potty. When he finally did I was super excited and made it such a big deal! He loves how happy I got and picked up going to the bathroom very quickly. Now he signs and tells me he needs to go. We haven't had an accident since October, when his baby brother came home from the NICU.
Let him run around with no diaper. When he pees on the floor put him on the potty. Eventually he will figure it out.
I slowly stared introducing the potty when my daughter turned one. Having her sit on her potty and read books about using the potty. It takes at least 10 times of them actually going for them to start to understand the concept. There is going to be plenty of accidents and a plastic underwear liner really helps. If you do have an accident don’t get frustrated with them sit them on the potty and say next time we go pee or poop on the potty. Try to have them help clean up the mess by putting the dirty clothes in hamper or getting the paper towel to clean it up etc. eventually they are not going to like getting wet/ dirty. Having a potty in the same room they are in at all times. It can be really difficult at times and just when you think you have it down the next day will be accidents all day long but you’ll get there! We have been fully potty trained since before she turned two. Lots of patience and consistency
How often do you just sit him on the toilet ?
Y’all please help I have a 3 year old and a 2 year both girls and my 2 year old seems more ready she’s used the potty more times than my 3 year old but my 3 old just doesn’t seem to have an interest in it but I really need her to learn and with my only bathroom being upstairs it makes it difficult to go up and down please help me
Choose one time per day to sit consistently… then two times… build her up and praise her for small steps and progress.
I struggle with my daughter to get her in the potty. I feel like we take 1 step forward and then 2 steps back.

Hello I have lots of potty training tips & tricks on my website to help https://sueatkinsparentingcoach.com/2018/05/toilet-training-made-easy/
My daughter responded really well to chocolate bribery 😂
Would 16 months be too early to start? She is ripping diaper off i literally have to keep her in shorts, pants, or onesie. I thought no harm trying early but didnt do my first child potty training til 2 and half when she started doing this. This one feels a bit early second time around
Samee🤦🏾♀️there was so much poop everywhere. I started to put my daughter on the potty after naps because that’s usually when she’d rip her diaper off. She pooped a few times in the potty because she really had to go but we haven’t been consistent or on a schedule so she has to always have pants on too
honestly just let them show you when they're ready. If he isn't very verbal yet then it probably isn't time. I potty trained my kid a little after age two and she's begun stay dry all night now, three months later, but initial potty training took like a week. Again, though, if you push them now then it'll be harder in the long run as they'll regress around age five!
I started toilet training my son at 18 months we follow the Montessori method. I taught him the sign language for toilet first then went from there. Took about a month for him to catch on. He’s now 2.5 and fully potty trained. I wasn’t a big fan of using rewards but we did say “you did it! You must be so proud of yourself” to encourage self gratification. I would also recommend teaching him how to pull his pants down too as it will save you having to assist every time once he gets it. Also if it’s hot where you are opt for naked as I did it in winter (rookie error) and I was washing piles of clothes a day! 🙃Good luck and trust me it will get better! You may feel like you’re not making any progress then boom! He’s got it 😅
How can I get my one year old to do a number 2
Mine do all the number 2 in toilet since he is 2 months, now 5 months
My daughter will be 2 in 4 months she’s starting to use the potty but she won’t do number #2 yet she lets me and her daddy know when she owes she says pee pee mommy or pee pee daddy
My son is 2 we are potty we put him in big boy unberwear during the day and pull up at night and nap time we let him tell us when he has to go and if he goes to the bath room he gets a small piece of candy
I’ve potty trained 3 kids and what’s worked for us is waiting until they wake up regularly with a dry diaper. This lets you know they can hold it. Then we got a training potty and would just have it around. We talked about it watched videos and read books. If they seem interested then we would hangout around the potty with no clothes or bottoms for easy access and attempted to get them to sit on the potty while watching potty videos. Then we would just keep up with this until things come together. If they start to get angry or seem scared it’s best to wait and try again in 1-2 months. We also try not to use pull ups just the padded undies.
Yeah my 3 year old still wearing pull ups and goes potty in the chair but I think we’re gonna try some new tips
I found that not pushing them or nagging them to go helps. They will learn when they are ready. My daughter is 3 in 7 weeks and we tried at 2 as she showed interest but wasn’t quiet ready but left her potty out just incase . We tried again at 2.5 she was doing really well but regressed after we moved to another state we encouraged her to try but didn’t push her, plenty of praise ect. The last few months she’s decided she wants to be a big girl and wear undies like mummy. Still having accidents but now goes on the big toilet by herself.
My daughter will be three next month and she'll go #1 in the potty but we have to put her on the potty every 30mins so she doesn't go in her pull-up. But the thing she will not do is go #2 in the potty she'll just go in her pull-up and not tell me or her dad. She has older siblings that try to show her but she just doesn't want to. Also she starts school in a couple week.
My daughter just say pee get the potty but i never no when she pooed starting tomoim going to do the 3 day staying in potty training
Online I use Eric potty training. Seems to work with some of the techniques. My daughter is nearly 3 and uses the toilet MOST of the time 😆
We’re in week 3 on potty training my 2.5 year old son. I believe it finally click to him. He’s been using the toilet for pee and surprise even poop. We started out with many accidents. But, now very very few. We did a combo of myths butt naked and underwear. Butt naked seem to do the trick.

My daught had 3 year old For me I stop rushing it I let her decide because forcing make her scare what she most of de time come in the toilet with me and copy me but done nothing I tell well done she happy to copy me and flush the toilet She had toilet double potty seat I always ask her do you want go to the toilet her unswear is always no
You can teach him the sign language for potty, pee and poop so even if he can't speak to tell you he can sign it.
I used the potty training in three days book. It really helped. We put a sticker up every time we went and also did a treat. Best thing I got from the book was to use a real potty. They get confusedwhen they can use the little one everywhere. It’s like diapers. They need to no to go to the actual restroom. Also sitting them on it backwards is sometimes less scary. For boys put Cheerios in the toilet and let the try to hit them.
Hi , so the book said to put them on the actual toilet instead of little potty?
My daughter is 3 1/2 and finally getting the hang of it. She struggles to poop in the toilet though. She would rather not sit around and wait. 🤷🏻♀️
Ok then its just not me! My 4 yr old is sooooo stubborn! I've tried everything down to getting those double seated potty seats. I have charts, rewards, bribery. I don't know what I'm doing. Lol. He acts like he's scared to go on the potty. I'm going to lose it lol. Any suggestions?
Thanks! I will definitely try that and hopefully that will help ease her an anxiety about it. Thats great that your son has done so well 😊
