Hi I am pregnant with ds4 and would ideally like ds3 potty trained by the time he arrives in 5 weeks.

I've made a start this week again. We tried before but he regressed when we moved house. He isn't afraid of the potty and will happily poo and wee in it. He doesn't ask to go on the potty. I either tell him too or he starts to dribble and quickly gets on. He goes crazy when he has a nappy change so I feel like now is the time(he has always hated his nappy changed). Yesterday I had him naked from the waist down and now accidents although I had to keep wiping down the leather sofa with dettol wipes grin in the afternoon I put a pull up on and he actually asked to go twice. Today again started with him naked and he used the potty twice. Put a pull up on and he pooped in it. He's just wet another pull up.

What should I be doing? I have also been giving him a chocolate button when he does a wee is that a good or bad thing. When do I introduce the toilet? I have bought a trainer seat in preparation. I can't remember enough from the first two as they are now 11 and 10

I'd put him on the toilet at bath time every night, get him used to it now.
And flush any poo from the pullups into the toilet so he can see.

Apart from that you seem to be doing fine. How much is he dripping, if it's a lot then padded underpants might be better as they contain drips?

Pirate thanks. I've ordered a load of pants to arrive today and I think I'm just going to get him used to them. Probably means lots of accidents. I left him naked yesterday afternoon and he peed on the rug twice. This morning the first thing he said on waking was "sorry mummy". I said what for and he replied "for weeing on the carpet". So there is at least an understanding there.
