I'm a little late potty training b/c my son doesn't really care to be wet. But he's 3 and 3 months now and I figured we need to move on with this potty training. I've got everything ready to go. However, my son will not RELEASE THE PEE unless it's in pull-up or diaper. We wear only underwear when we are home; hoping that he can feel the pee and know when something is wrong. However, my child held his urine from 10am to 4:30pm and finally released in on my carpet when he could not hold it anymore. I'm so nervous that he causing harm to himself. Occasionally he holds his penis and I know he has to go but it will not. Does anyone have any clues? I was told to take him outdoor without bottoms so that he will get used to releasing. Thoughts? Suggestions? My daughter was not THIS HARD!View Thread
Thanks for you reply. When we are home, we only use underwear. We only use pull-ups when we are leaving the house and diapers are used at night (b/c we still have them).
My son sits and tucks to pee. I was told that this was the easiest for boys and to use the Cheerio method after they master it. Using blue food coloring is something I have not heard and will have to try.
The issues I have is the actual release. He panics and tries to get diapers and bangs on a door that I keep them in when he has to go bad. He applies pressure to penis by clutching it tight to keep it from coming.
Just now, he had to go so bad that he knees were clutched and he was clutching his penis. My husband ran him to the potty. It's been 15 minutes and we have no pee. He will not go. It seems as though it's psychological. How do I get him to realize that it's ok to pee outside a diaper. He see us go and watches my husband go... but it has not clicked and he will go hours without peeing. View Thread
