We are trying to potty train DS (2yrs7months) and we are having a hard time. He shows all the signs of readiness, so we figured we'd try. We know he has control of it as he's held it most of today. He didn't pee until 11:30 this morning, then had 2 accidents in a row. He wore a diaper for nap and hasn't peed since he woke up. He pooped twice during nap (he holds it until nap/night time - usually early morning right after he wakes before we get up). Since we aren't around during his nap, he sits in his poop and doesn't tell us (when he does poop while not napping, he asks us to change his diaper). He has had more rashes in the last few months than he ever did before and he will cry when we change him if it happens.
I feel like he is ready to get trained, but we're having no luck. I've tried charts, stickers, m&ms, suckers, Thomas stuff, clapping, singing/dancing, we have the singing potty... nothing is working. We talk to him about how big boys pee in the potty and he LOVES sitting on it. He always asks to go when we go.
Anyone have any suggestions on what to do?? I'm at a loss as to what will motivate him. Should I just hold off?
TIA! I know there is a potty board, but no one is posting or responding, so I figured I'd try here.
