My DS is 2yr 6m and we have hit a bump in the road regarding potty training as he is practically refusing to wear pants or understand the use of them.
If we are having a day at home he will be bare bottomed all day and use the potty whenever he needs a wee but he hates me and DH trying to put pants on him. He gets quite angry/upset about it and the few times he has actually wore them in the house (we have him in just pants and a t-shirt) he will just wee/poo in them instead of using the potty.
I have explained to him (age appropriately) that if he needs a wee or poo then he can take his pants down or ask me or daddy to help and then he can use the potty, but he just won't. I don't think he understands that they aren't nappies and he can't just wee and poo in them which is fair enough as I know he's still young, but I don't know where to go from here?
I was thinking that pull-ups should be the next step but most people I've spoken to have gone straight from nappies to pants.
Exact same thing happened with my DS. I used pull ups when out of the house and told him they were pants and he still needed to use the potty/loo. Was hit and miss for a few days and then just got it and was in normal pants within a week with no accidents and dry for naps and overnight.
