Good day candorella,Welcome to our board.

This is a common accourance for this age,they have been in diapers and pull-ups all thier lives.

I found the easiest way around this is to buy a few pair of plastic pants and after the first accident with his regular underwear,have him wear a pair as he did with the naked method.

He will find very quick that with the plastic,they will leak and run down his legs,this is what they dislike most.

When he wets them,take him to the bathroom,in the tub and take them off and clean both him and the pants there,then put another pair on and let him know,he can stop wearing them when he starts using the potty again.

He may also just be doing this because of the new baby on the way,don't worry,it will not take long for this to change.

Please keep us up-dated on his responce and progress,or not.

Many Blessings to you both.
