Potty Training Boys.... need tips !

We have had Danny use his little bjorn potty a few times... well, yesterday he actually pulls down his pants and wants to go pee in the regular potty.... I was like??? What do I do... do I get a stool and work on him standing? Do I sit him on it and aim down? (the bjorn potty comes up so he pees and it hits the shield).... of course, it took me too long to decide and he peed on the floor !!! Any tips? and any books you liked? I have the signing times potty video.. I"ll think we'll try that later today.

That is great Wenz! Joseph went right to standing- he thought I was nuts wanting him to SIT & PEE! I guess after watching older brother-LOL;) If he is game I think you should let him. Of course I do have to clean around the toilet a lot more often!

We read our potty book every night before bed and I made sure and took him every 1/2 hour to try. He was trained in no time!

Wow!  He's so young!  I don't have any advice though.  Ian was 3 1/2.  ;)  But it was no "training" by that time.  It was me telling him "you better pee in the potty or you don't get to play video games."  Harsh, maybe?  But he was trained in one day.  No accidents!  He was more than ready... just lazy! LOL

Good luck to you!!!
