My name is Lesha, I'm from the March 08 PR. I have two boys, Stone (2) and Mason (1)

My oldest son Stone, showed interest in PT when he was 13 mths. He used the baby potty daily with much success.

Once Mason was born, that went away....

He's in the I'm a baby too stage... I've tried the big boy approach, dont ya wanna be like daddy... no... he thinks hes a baby like Mason...

Ive tried candy, stickers... a big boy toilet seat... big boy undies...

My new trick... giving him tasks only big boys can do... and making sure to tell him, that Mason can not do this because he's a baby.. blah blah.. hes loves to help me do things around the house, so these tasks are fun for him.

Im hoping after a bit of this.. maybe I can reenforce his big boy behavior, by talking with him about the potty again...

Anyway what are some tricks??

I hope I made sense there.. lol

hmmm... the whole "you can do this and your brother is too little to" always worked for me.

Sam loves the zoo. So I took a picture of the giraffes, made a 5x7 of it, then cut it into puzzle pieces. Every day he goes without an accident, he gets a puzzle piece. When the puzzle is complete, he gets a trip to the zoo. This works well since we have zoo passes and get in free. Costs me nothing more than the photo itself.

We also have a mantra: big boys pee in the ________. Sam has to fill in the blank. Helps with speech delay.

I let him pick out three packages of big boy underwear and he likes wearing them.

I wonder about this too. My dd is 20 months old and has shown interest on and off in potty training. But I am due soon with our second child and am really wondering how that will affect her potty training.

Making the distinction between what a big boy can do and what his baby brother can do sounds like a wonderful idea.

Oh, once a week if either of my boys went accident free all week, they got to pick out a package of character underwear at the store. and they get 2 starburst each time they went pee or a sucker for poop. this worked great with my oldest since my younger son was too small for candy.
