My little boy gets a sticker every time I potty him IF he has dry pants. He generally either has a story or the tv on for a few minutes while he's on the pot unless we're out in the garden etc. I don't wait for him to tell me he needs to go but keep putting him on and also watching out for cues like holding his crotch :giggle: . We're using various training pants and also normal pants with cloth sanitary towels in. He's often dry all day but wears a nappy at night, its always dry in the morning but I daren't leave him bare yet!

Sounds like he's getting the idea :)
I hate pull-ups when trying to potty train, they feel just like a nappy so they don't understand the whole concept. I used to ask my guys every half hour or so (nearly sent myself batty) but it worked and they soon realised their own body ques of then needed to go.
