Many little boys take a while to learn about potty training. It looks like both of you could do with a short break from any potty training. So stop all training and don't even mention the word 'potty' for 10 days.Then start again. Follow the recommendations you will find on the internet. Give lots of praise and a reward if he gets things right. Have lots of patience.

Hi there, in March my little girl was 2y2m and I just took the nappy off. There are going to be lots of accidents but grit your teeth and in two weeks you will have planted the seed. If they are starting at day care it will go easier too as he is gong to see his friends go and will put two and two together. in summer it is easier though as they are wearing less - and it is warmer. mayber consider starting when it is a little warmer..
