A little potty training advice please…

It worked!!! My daughter, Alana (32 months old) and I did the 3 day pottying method over the Memorial Day weekend. After Sunday, she did great! Got the peeing in the potty down with no problem. She has only had 3 accidents since then and one of them was on the way to the potty. So, I am so proud. Now the poopy has not been successful. Just so you know Alana’s bowel habits. Since Alana was a baby, she pretty much only goes one time a day. Every now and then it is 2x a day, but that’s few and far between.

Back to Memorial Day weekend. She did not poop at all on Saturday. On Sunday, I did the technique, “Tell me when you gotta go pee or poopie, okay?” She started saying her bottom hurt. I knew it was coming. I was right with her like you said. She never changed expression, stopped what she was doing and said, “Mama, I poopied.” Sure enough she had. Scooped her up, plopped it in the potty and she sat on potty for 2 seconds. Lots of praise for “finishing in the potty.”

The next day, she started in her panties, I caught it and she finished in the potty. Praise, praise, praise. I had to go back to work on Tuesday. Alana went back to day care. She did not poopy at day care at all. (she usually does it there) That night, we were playing, I was watching her carefully for any tell tell signs. None!!! She looked up and said, “Mama I poopied.” that is how it has been ever since. I have been telling her there is a “big prize if she poopies in the potty.” One time last week, I knew it was coming and tried to get her to sit on potty and she was kicking and screaming. Refused and I didn’t want to “force her,” so she started in her panties and when I tried to get her to finish on the potty, refused to sit down. So, what to do?

Alana does not seem afraid. After she goes we talk about pooping in the potty. Her poop does not appear hard, so I don’t think it hurts. She has pooped in grocery stores, kmart, restaurants. I am still positive and we are still rewarding the peeing part. She does not like the “dirty feeling,” should I try to make her “feel” it longer before I clean her up? That seems so gross. I know this is just week 2, but I feel like we are so close. Thanks for your help and this program was great.

Hi Lora

I just wanted to let you know that Milo was able to stay dry all day long at his first day back at daycare. It worked!! I’m so thrilled. Thanks again for all your support and advice before and during the process. That sure made it easier knowing I wasn’t alone! I’ve posted the results on the mommies group site, so with any luck you’ll be getting more orders soon.

Speaking of which, I would like to give a copy of the book to my sister for working with her daughter. Is there a way to give her a gift certificate or something like that?

Thanks again! :)

Hi Lora,

Finally an email with just good news!! I can’t believe it, but we were actually able to take Allen out to a restaurant and a fun “Jump Zone” place with NO accidents tonight!!

It has finally “clicked” with him and he runs to the potty and says “I want to potty” and goes, doing almost everything by himself! We reminded him over and over while we were out, and sure enough, he told us when he had to go!

THANK YOU so much for this book! Sorry I had so many frantic questions, but this was an exhausting process. I didn’t want to give up, but with every set back, I was worried that there wasn’t an end in sight.

We’re still waiting on the big “poo poo” in the potty and accident free nights, but I know they are on the way shortly.

The effort you put into writing this book has been such a blessing to us. We are grateful to God for this success, and we thank Him for your good work in this book, too!

Hi Lora,

Thank you for your FANTASTIC program! It has worked beautifully throughout the day time and our daughter has improved at night to the point where she is only waking once to go to the toilet however that occurs with my husband sleeping on the floor next to her bed and waking to take her to the potty. We are nearing to the end of Day 4 and there are no longer any accidents throughout the day. We are very impressed as we had 18 accidents on Day 1 and nothing to show in the potty.

2 Questions please …

1. How do we now get to the stage where she will sleep throughout the night dry without my husband being present (our daughter will be 3 in June)? As we are in a large house and her bedroom is at one end of the house and us at the other. We don’t want her to wake up and panic. We have placed her potty in the bathroom closest to her bedroom and leave the bathroom light on of an evening.

2. Throughout the 3 day program we have given her lots of variety of fluids as you suggested. But going on to so called Day 5 tomorrow how much fluid should she be drinking throughout the day?

Kind regards,

John and Kylie
