I think Robbie is ready so we got him a potty but he just wants to put toys in it, he knows what it is for, the other day he went in his room and pooped on his floor!!!! eeewwww so he needs to do this but it is hard to really focus when the babies are always screaming any tips??? Jordan was a breeze, one day we put undies on her and that was it
Jack has those days where he doesnt make it to the potty and it may result with one or the other on the floor. Its gross but I think part of training. Noah really didnt get it til he was REALLY ready. We had him wet trained but couldnt get him to poop on the potty for the LONGEST time. One day he just started going on the potty and heas ever since. With Noah, I had to take away the pullups and just use underpants. I did buy the plastic pants to put over the regular underpants to kind of contain any accidents. It helped somewhat. I only used pullups if we went out. Rewards help... stickers, m&m's, Marshmallows. We gave 2 m&m's just for trying. 5 if he peed and a bag of marshmallows if he pooped (the individual bags with like 5 mini marshmallows in them). At night time closer to bed he got stickers. Good luck!!
All three girls were easy to train so I do not have a lot of advice. I know that some kids will paly with the potty chair for weeks before they use it for the first time. You just have to try not to get upset whent hey pee on the floor right next to it. Kylie did that several times and it was so annoying!! It turns out my two older ones had no idea what the potty chair was for, but did great on one of the seats that attaches to the big potty. Emilee will use either, but def prefers the little potty chair. Hopefully he will figure it out easily and soon for you!!

We had a potty for Madeline and all she wanted to do was play with it as well. We ended up going to Walmart and getting one of those seat tops that just go right on top of the toliet. We let her pick it out and after a few days she totally understands and when she has to go she will tell me pee pee and run to the bathroom and put her seat top on and let me put her up there. Then when she is done she takes it off and puts it back.
After that to get her going I let her go naked or in big girl undies and just keep asking. If she has an accident its usually small bc she stops herself and I just explain that we go in the potty if we dont have a diaper on and I take her back to the potty and have her sit there.
