I don't really think my 2 and a half year old son is ready to potty. Then again, some days I do. What are the signs of being ready?
His boy cousin that is the same age goes to the potty and rarely has accidents. Meanwhile my son isn't trained yet and apparently the fault lies with me (I am so sick and tired of people asking why he isn't trained yet)
I let him sit on the potty when he wants to. He doesn't actually pee in it (I take that back, he has peed once)
I can sort of predict his bowel movements sometimes. I am not psychic, it's just that when he leaves the room to go to another one and slams the door, I know what he's doing.
Pee diapers aren't easy for me to predict. Sometimes he holds it for hours, other times, he pees 2x in 20 minutes.
Everyone keeps telling me to buy Pull Ups or just put him in the underwear. Once he's been wet a couple times, they tell me he'll start going.
I don't know if I buy that.
So what are the signs of being ready? When he is ready, how do I do it?
