I wouldn't bother with the potty if he is happy to use the toilet. None of mine used the potty for long and I was gald of that really as it is a fiddle having to empty the potty and clean it each time. On the other hand, the potty is mobile so your ds might get to it quicker than the loo..........

If he prefers the toilet - let him. Friend's DS was PTd just after turning 3 and from the start he used the big toilet and a stool for standing up wees. He didn't get on with potties at all. Because he was tall enough, he managed the toilet fine.

I know he is still struggling with going for a poo - like many children do. My tip for that - make sure if he is sat down he has something firm to place his feet against - we found this certainly helped with DD>

stick with the toilet! it's much easier because then if you're out anywhere you know he will go without having to lug a potty round with you.
