Okay...I've decided to finally take the plunge into the world of potty training boys. We finally bought a little tushie toilet yesturday and some Diego underwear ( Carson's current favorite) and tried it out. Carson was quite intersted in his new potty that I decided I would take off the diaper and slip on some undies. Well, in the hour we tried it, he wet through all three pair of underwear...ugh! So, I'm looking for some suggestions on how to jump start potty training...any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! One good thing... he didn't like the feeling of wet underwear...so at least I have that going for me!

Oh man, good luck. My neighbor is just starting to potty train her little girl (she's almost 3) and it seems to work pretty good for her until she gets excited/distracted with playing outside or something. Her mom gives her "potty treats" of course every time she goes and puts her on at random times of the day, whether or not she says she has to go, but I know its different for boys, so GOOD LUCK!! I'm sure Jan is plum full of good ideas..she takes great pride that she potty trained Christian at 22 months. Wowzer.

I wish I could give you tips, Jill...when I found out I was pregnant we got all geared up and the same thing happened! Now I'm to the point where I have to wait until the baby is here before I worry about it. I tried setting a timer for about every 15 minutes...and I would defintely use treats, A.J. was very motivated by that.
