I agree with VickieLynn. Pullups remind My Ian of diaper and he doesn't think he needs to go potty with them. Except for one week he decided to revert he has done wonderful with big boy pants. He almost never wets himself....maybe once a week we will have an accident if that. But he still does not poop in the mode all the time,however it is getting better! yeah! Good luck!

Big Boy Pants, very appropriate name

Now would that be regular underwear Candy, the thick ones for the "big boy"? I know that if I use that saying with my son he may just like that. He knows that he is "not a baby" he is a "boy' that is what he says to me...now I will introduce that to him and say this is for a "big boy". I think I have one or two around that a friend passed on to me. Smiles, LovedMom

I put Ian in real undies with pictures of spongebob and spiderman and skooby doo on them...some are plain and I do have a few pair padded trainers. But my veiw is if they have an accident something is going to get wet so we just went for the big boy undies and it has worked very well...the few accidents he had it was not any harder to clean the carpet or whatever with either pants. Once he got use to the "no Padding for his butt when he threw a fit and plopped down" he does love his big boy pants or as we sometimes call them my dutch boys pants...he is grandma's little dutch boy!LOL he likes that.

I have to say that the phrase that was the big key for Luke is "superhero." Every time he used the potty we would say that he was being a superhero. Now he will tell everyone that he used the potty, "I'm a STUPERHERO!"
Strangely enough he prefers his plain white underwear to the character ones....I think because he knows Daddy has the same plain kind.

The problem with those thick underwear for us was that they don't have a lot of elastic in the waist. On my skinny kids, they kept falling down and the kids didn't want to wear them. I hardly used them at all with Luke for this reason.

THank you Candy and barbszy

I will be reporting back how it goes over here. Thanks ladies for the sharing and tips because I can see that if dh helps out with our "big boy" things will perhaps pick up a lot faster. At any rate, I have given my dh an ultimatum LOL, that we are not going to keep using daipers and our last bunch are the ones he just bought. I also tried the thick underwear today and he did wet it and felt very uncomfortable like mom get me out of this and he walked around funny but I thought that was good for him to realize where his business belongs...in the toilet...
Hugs gals, LovedMom

I practiced tough-love with two of my children, making them walk their own poopy pants/diapers down to the bathroom (after changing) to dunk them in the toilet, then put them in the diaper pail.

I even went as far (one morning) as to pin up a pair of dirty morning diapers on the clothesline for all the neighbours to see. Diaper inside rubber pants, just as I had pulled them off.

I never spanked for accidents, though there were times I wanted to... however, for blatant laziness... an automatic spanking.

Potty training is slow going, but we will get there. Not fond of the pull ups cause they seem just like diapers. Will need to start using training pants on a regular basis. There are early learners, and late learners, a mom just has to go with the flow (pun not intended LOL!)

My grandson is 19 months old and has showed an interest in potty training about 3 months or so ago. We went ahead with dr. advice and got him a potty chair, he is well under way.... most of the day he uses it for #1 and occasionally for #2, has a small accident here and there, but is terrified of the big potty yet. And then when we go shopping I hate to even think of putting him on one of those dirty big pottys! Anyone have any suggestions on what to do then? He is still so young he would fall in if I didn't hold onto him, lol!
