Individual experience. Results will vary.
I can’t believe it!!!! It clicked with my almost-four-year-old daughter halfway through the first day AND we have had two completely dry nights! It’s a miracle for sure… I never thought I would get her there! She started out excited about throwing out the diapers and putting on big girl underwear, but after holding in her pee for most of the morning when she couldn’t any longer, I had to endure an hour and a half of crying “I don’t want to wear underwear! I want my diapers!” She even searched through her room for any remaining ones. But I stuck it through and it clicked after a few times of going on the potty. I think it made all the difference that I was not forcing her to sit on the potty.
By day three (today), she is telling us exactly when she needs to go without any prompting from us. She even went off completely on her own and did number two all by herself and told us about it afterwards!! The final test will be seeing how she does at day care tomorrow. Her teacher was very supportive when I told her about it last week though, so I think we’ll be fine.
Thank you SO MUCH!!!! I cannot begin to tell you how happy this has made us!
