Potty Blues

Okay... those of you with boys (I don't know why this is different, but it just is) ... hear me out.

We started potty training Nathan, very gently at the beginning of April (he was about 2 years and 2 months). Things were going great. He was peeing in the potty at least once a day, responding to praise, talking about it, asking to go... GREAT, I tell you. Then, we made an impromptu trip home to visit my aunt. I forgot to bring a potty seat and didn't buy one for a couple days. Those two days? Could they have possibly reset everything?

It's been a month and he's gone to the potty maybe 3 times. If you ask him if he wants to go, says no, and sometimes cries.

The Targo and I have taken a step back and just said, he'll do it when he's ready. We still ask him every day, we talk about, we read books, but he's just not interested.

Any ideas?

So weird! Liam has done the same exact thing. He was doing so good and then I was away from home a bit more than usual and he has developed such a negative attitude about the potty. So yesterday I decided to start bribing him with chocolate. It worked but I don't know if it will for long.
