Individual experience. Results will vary.

I have a 2-1/2 year old daughter. She initially started using the potty when she was about 23 months old. She used regular panties and she did great. Sometimes she would have an occasional pee pee accident.

Well, we went on vacation though and used pull ups on the airplane in her carseat because we flew from NY to California. Well the whole trip was awful (in terms of potty training, she totally regressed). When we came home I just started leaving her underwear off so she could see when she was going to go. Then when I would go out I used pull ups.

Well currently at 30 months old she never tells me and has many accidents. I am so frustrated. I am lucky to stay at home with her so I just try and remind her(although after reading you ebook I realize I have been asking her if she has to go, not reminding her to tell me)

Also I never tried nighttime potty training! I feel like I wish I would have learned of this book soooooo many months ago.

I actually downloaded www.thepottytrainer.com and tried that last week. Well she is worse. By worse I mean she has always pooped in the toilet(since 23 months old) and never had poop accidents. When I said regressed earlier I meant pee only. Well yesterday after trying the methods from thepottytrainer, she had a poop accident. This other book recommends MAKING them go potty by a timer. Even if they are crying and screaming to force them.

So now I plan to just let her wear her underpants and follow your nighttime training method.

Then wait 30 days to try yours as you recommend.

I am a dwarf (3 feet 9 inches tall) and I walk with crutches so it is not easy to carry her quickly too far. I have been using multiple little potty chairs for her. I have a potty chair in the family room and one in the living room. So we just usually use the closest potty depending on where we are in the house. If we are in the bathroom or near the bathroom we use the regular toilet with a potty insert.

Can I continue doing this while using your method?

Also since we have had such a long go of this, do you have any other recommendations?

Thanks so much!

p.s.
I have to say thank you again because I was so uncomfortable with the other methods from www.thepottytrainer.com it just seems so negative. Today was just awful she has more accidents after following this method than she ever had!!!!!!! I am so happy to have your book now. THANKS!!!
