My son is almost 2 & a 1/2 he has been wearing undies since he was 18months he refused to wear a nappy during the day ( he wantted to be just like dad & wear undies). We started off very wet but after investing in a wee-man things became alot dryer. He loved the idea that this was his speacial thing plus he gets to stand up like dad & he can use it all by himself. But we couldn't get our son to sit on the toilet he was afraid he would fall in, so we bought a potty for him but no he won't use it. Some nights we will sit with him for about 45mins waiting for him to do a poo we read books, sing song & give him alot of encouragement. Sometimes he will do a poo but most times he wait 5 mins after we put his nappy on for bed to do his poo. My husband & I find it very frustrating not only is it costing us alot of money in nappies but our son wants to start wearing undies to bed of a night. If anyone has any ideas on how to help us we would really be happy to hear from you. We have tried a lot of things rewards, special treats, alot of praise even punishment but nothing works & our son is very stubourn & indepent. Please help.
