The every two hours on the dot method I used with my daughter (she needs discipline because she can be a bit of a scatterbrain) and it worked.

I agrre, if he showes interest,go for it. If you feel the eval and all might be too stressful, just back off a bit during those times.

For my DS, it was pretty quick. He just wanted to pee outside. So, depending on where you live, you have some time left. Yes, winter came and DS couldn't go outside any more and the problem was solved. (Until we went to Florida mid-winter and stayed in a high-rise. I caught him peeing off the balcony!!! Like father -like son)

However, night can present a whole new set of issues for some! My DD at age three decided no diapers at night and has had a grand total of 3 accidents...all of which she slept through. DS is 4.5 and not even close to ready for night time. I think he has had three dry nights in four years!

Good luck...

I have three boys. The first potty trained at 18 months (took two days). That was only three months after his first word.

My son can say "pee-pee" and it is generally understood by everyone.
