Well, here I am again, here to update you on our progress and to maybe gain some MORE suggestions (we made progress and we didn't make progress).

Thank you for the update. My suggestion is to allow him to do the naked method for at least a week so he has a chance to understand what is happening. Then introduce underwear, and start using a timer, if your DS is usually good for an hour, set the timer for 50-55 minutes as a reminder to use the potty. With my oldest one it took time to transition from being naked to wearing underwear, but when he finally put it all together, it was great, and it happened over night.

As for a stand alone potty we used the peter potty, and the tinkletoonz. I highly recommend both of them. We started with the tinkletoonz, and then went to the peter potty once he had the control he needed.

I hope that helps. Please keep us updated on your DS progress.

Hello Kellycali,


Are you still having issues with your little Schuyler? I have an almost 3 year old boy and we are. We seem to be having similar problems. My son has pooped and peed in the potty and now has been in big boy underwear for about

Hello Savannah30!


It sounds as though we have the same little boy!

Heather, Hi and welcome to the Toilet Teaching board.

The first thing I would suggest is to let the frustration go. Kids can pick up on it and it effects them. I also suggestion that you finish out the weekend with potty training with the naked method. If after 3-5 days you do not notice improvement then stop and take break for a week or so and try again, either with the same method, or a different one. Many times finding the method/methods of training can be one of the hardest parts of training. Is there something that your DD really wants, a toy, to go somewhere? If so that can be used as the reward. Another idea that can help is give her some pennies each time she pees, and a dime or quarter for poops, and have her save up for a toy or game she wants. Please keep us updated on your DD progress.
