Potty Training???

4 answers
I am 6 weeks pregnant with our third baby, my 13 month old son is still in diapers and this baby is due 7 days after my sons 2nd birthday. I would like to have my son potty trained before this baby is born but I don't want to force this issue on him. He is saying pepe and grabbing his "stuff" so I thought he was ready but every time I take him to potty he wants the toothbrush and toothpaste...(at least he has good oral hygeine) But seriously...any suggestions????

What worked for my son, was to let him go around the house with no bottoms on. Everytime he had to pee he would hold himself and then run to tell me. But whenever I had underwear or a pull up on him, he would just go on himself. I think it was because it felt like a diaper to him since he was used to going in one before. Good luck!
Thanks....I do let him go without bottoms and all but he will go and pee and poop in the floor instead of holding himself...I am now wondering if he is not ready.He just trned 1 in March
I wish you the best of luck with the pottytraining. I was under the impression that a 13 month old just wouldnt be ready for potty training yet. I have a 13 month old daughter and am 18 weeks pregnant with baby #2 and had not heard anything encouraging about trying to potty train at all before the new baby gets here.. If anything works for you let me know.. I am just getting used to the idea that we will have 2 in diapers since she will turn 18 months the same day I am due with this one .. good luck =)
Thanks! I herd that boys were alot harder to potty train than girls and it must be true! I might as well get use to having two in diapers as well!   LOL
