Potty Training questions

Read Dr. Gordon's general advice on potty training


Starting Potty Training

I've been potty training my son for the past seven days. He has yet to actually pee or poop in the toilet. I keep underpants on him and now for the past 3 days holds everything in until bedtime when I put diapers on. What should I do? Should I continue potty training or keep playing his game? (... more on Starting Potty Training)

2 year old who likes to be naked

My daughter is now 27 months old and quite interested in the potty. Videos, books, loves her panties( to play with).  She tells me the minute she goes...etc.  Lately she has been taking her diaper off and all her clothes for that matter at nap time.  We have a video monitor so I can (... more on the 2 year old who likes to be naked)

potty seat

What is the best potty seat? Where do you keep it in your home?

We have been through 5 or 6 potty seats over the years. The best potty seats are the simple ones. We had a Baby Bjorn seat for our last couple and are using a Fisher-Price one with our current toddler (shown in picture).

Potty Training Resistance

My daughter is 28 months old and is fighting us on potty training.  We have a small potty for her downstairs that we keep in her playroom and a small potty upstairs for her in the bathroom.  She has peed in it twice (on her own).  I allow her to run (... more on Potty Training Resistance)

3 year old having accidents

My son is now just 5 months shy of his 4th birthday. He is for the most part, potty trained. He still has days, well, just about every day, when he has accidents in his pants. To clarify, they are not "true" accidents. He just doesn't want to stop what he is doing and go to the potty. (... more on the 3 year old having accidents)

2 year old who prefers to poop in a diaper

I am potty training my 2 year old girl, just turned 2 in December.  I also have a 4 year old girl.  The potty training is going great.  Only a few accidents in just 3 days.  However, she has not pooped on the potty yet. The first day it was in her panties.  The 2nd day she asked to go (... more on 2 year old who prefers to poop in a diaper)


Pooping on Potty

My 2 1/2 year old daughter is having issues with pooping in the potty. She has been peeing in the potty since March/April of this year. She has pooped in the potty before and was given a reward. However, for the last 3-4 months she has been holding her poop for a few days and refuses to poop in the (... more on Pooping on Potty)

Potty Training Regression

My son will be three in June and has been potty trained for 5 months now with an occasional accident but for the most part was fully potty trained. Within the last few months he started showing some signs of discomfort when needing to (... more on Potty Training Regression)

3 year old not potty trained

My son will be 4 in 3months.  He was probably a late potty trainer in that we didn't start until a couple months before he was 3 because he just never seemed ready (and his sister was born (... more on 3 year old not potty trained)

Potty Trained and Having Accidents

potty trained and having accidents

My daughter was potty trained last July when she turned 2 and within two weeks she was fully potty trained. In December she also came off pull-ups at night because she was waking up dry every morning. She always asked to go to the toilet with plenty of time to go and had recently started going by herself (... more on Potty Trained and Having Accidents)

2 year old won't poop on the potty

We just started potty training our 27 month old son 3 days ago and he has caught on rather quickly going # 1. He had one accident the first day and then one during bed time but other than (... more on 2 year old won't poop on the potty)


4-year-old still having accidents

My daughter is 4 years and 3 months and potty trained at age 2. She was amazing and within 3 weeks she had mastered potty training and by the time she was 2.5 y.o she was dry at night too so we said goodbye to pull ups. (... more on 4-year-old still having accidents)
