Re: naked for potty training?
I have to say that potty training my son was so much more time consuming, harder and frustrating than potty training my daughter! My son did great peeing in the potty, but pooping was a totally different story. Urghh...seemed like it took forever.
I saw you mention diapers and pull ups, but have you tried underwear, or even boxers? This way, he is covered on the bottom half and your husband might be a bit happier with it. I know you said that your son just goes without thinking about having to pull pants, diapers or pull-ups down, but underwear is a totally different feel for them, and doesn't keep the moisture away from their skin.
There really is no wrong way to potty train- you have to figure out what works for each child and go from there. Like I said before, there was little to no effort in potty training my daughter as she seemed to just potty train herself at the age of two. My son was almost 4 years old before he was totally potty trained.
Try putting the "big boy" underwear on your son and let him know that these are special, and need to stay dry and clean. I think the sticker chart is a great thing by the way- maybe you can come up with some sort of sticker/star reward for every time he lets you know he needs to go without going in the big boy underwear?? I took my son with me and let him pick out the big boy underwear he wanted and liked the best. It did seem to help speed up the process a bit.
