Thank you for your advice. I did wake him up and kept it dark and sure enough, he went right back to sleep for the whole night. I went back in a few times to check for dryness and just whispered for him to call me if he has to go. I took him in the morning and noticed he was completely dry! So proud. Ok, so my next question is, how long after the 3 days shall I continue the sticker charts, small rewards and visual schedule? He goes to his sitter on Tues, should I give her a bag of m&m’s, and have her give him one each time? For how long? Thank you

Thank you for your response!

#1 As far as high fiber foods, we had been loading her up on bananas and cheese and it seemed like it went straight from diarrhea to not pooping for 3 days! We have now adjusted and are being more careful of what we are feeding her. She eats a lot of oatmeal, oranges, and apples. Any good ideas on foods? I know she has to go and she sat on the toilet multiple times and just cried like it was hurting her. I think she is just afraid to do it, like it will hurt. Finally, last night, after watching her like a hawk all day, there was another accident that took my attention for a couple of minutes and I found her in my bathroom upstairs in my husband’s closet with poopie underwear. I was so disappointed. I made her go straight to bed (using Love and Logic) without any of her bears. She was kind of sad. But….on to

#2 She woke up probably 8 times last night, dry every time! She went potty maybe 4-5 of those times and when she got up this morning and I found her climbing on her bed, she was still dry!!!!! It was amazing! Thank you for your ideas. I will see how it goes tonight and see if I need to do the waking up at those certain times idea. Thank you so much for your help. I hope we are on the way…


Potty training going great!

Thursday, March 26th, 2009


Yes I did get it and I am in the process….it is going great! I was very exicted about potty training him not only during the daytime but aslo night time too.  He did wonderful his first day with no accidents and the 1st night went good with a couple of ‘mommy I’m peeing…’ around 3:00am but still the underwear stayed dry. Thanks so much.

Dear Lora

I have been meaning to drop you a line of feedback for a while now. I successfully used your 3 day potty training ebook in the beginning of April, much to my amazement and delight. My daughter and I had become the the talk of the creche groups. I am so pleased that I took the, what seemed at the time, big risk of paying for your ebook. It has been worth every penny spent on it. I am so proud of myself and my daughter for going for it and looking back the biggest thing that made me hesitate was the doubt in my daughter’s ability to be able to control herself. Of course you must receive numerous emails like this but i just wanted to thank you for being so kind hearted to have written your book so to spread the much needed pearls of wisdom throughout the world!!!! To be honest with you, toilet training my daughter has done more than just got my daughter out of nappies, it has inspired me to have belief in myself and my daughter to be able achieve goals together. I believe that had i tried to toilet train using the advice of friends and books it would have been quite a different story. Your simple method advice and words of encouragement worked a treat.

It has been about 6 weeks since the training started and accidents are occasional. She had wet herself whilst playing with friends when starting nursery and occasionally at night (such as when she had a temperature). I am so glad that i stuck it out with the night time too, during the first week of training i thought that it would take a long time to work as over half of the nights had resulted in wet sheets, although some nights she managed to stay dry. With in the first three days she pretty much mastered the day time toilet trips although she sometimes couldnt hold it long enough to get to the toilet. By the end of 2 weeks she was still bed wetting about 40% of the nights until i tried the advice of a friend who suggested lifting her after about 2-3hrs after her going to bed for another wee. by this time she had become used to being lifted in the night (after wetting the bed)and started to wee on demand although appearing to be still asleep. since then she very rarely wets the bed and when i lift her she generally doesnt wake properly or if she does wake then she always wants to go back to sleep. I was worried about lifting her initally as in the first few days of training she cried and screamed when i tried to place her on the toilet during the night so i stopped doing it. i think that as she got used the toilet she came around to the idea. she seems to sleep better too and now doesnt wake up at night seemingly for no reason and start crying as she did sometimes before potty training. she never needs soothing back to sleep now if she does wake. i wonder whether the damp nappies had caused the problem before?

She is so much cleaner and happier now. it had become a wrestling match to change her nappy before and i was just getting sick of changing them when she had become so capable. trying to pin down a pooy bum 2 year old is not easy!!!!toilets are the answer

Thanks so much and i am happy for you to use any comments that i have written for you website etc

Best regards

Peeing before bed?

My wife and I just completed the 3 Day Training with our daughter, and your system is amazing. Your techniques, based on love and compassion, fit perfectly with the rest of our parenting and it is exactly what I have been searching for!! It works so easily and well…thank you for sharing your knowledge!

We just have one hurdle left…our daughter still does not pee before she goes to bed. This results in an accidend durring the night. We have been attempting to have her pee twice before putting her down as your book suggests. Our plan is to just stay consistant with that until she catches on. Do you have any other suggestions? I have also been waking her one hour after she goes to sleep and one hour before she wakes, but have the same result…go to the toilet, but no peeing.

Thanks Again!
