Thank you for your reply. Another question. My son is now holding his pee for long periods of time. He is back at daycare today. They are taking him to the potty with the boys so he feels more comfortable but still doesn’t want to release. At least he isn’t having any accidents but I don’t want him to get an UTI. Any tips to get him to release on the potty? Thank you! Also how do I get him to not wet during the night? He doesn’t wake up at all when he wets to tell me he needs to go. (He is still in a crib). He has always been that way. Even with a poopy diaper he will sleep right through it. I even have a video monitor so I watch and he doesn’t get up. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Jenny

Thanks!

I just had to write so I could thank you! My wife and I have a 38 month old son (our only child) who up until this past weekend showed no interest in potty training. We had been following the “he’ll do it when he’s ready” approach that was recommended by many people near and dear to us — but there were no signs of progress with this method. I found your web site and ordered the pdf last week. We started our training on Saturday, and by the end of the day I was a little discouraged. He didn’t seem to be “getting it”. By Sunday however, he was a pro! He loves showing off his new found skills, and couldn’t wait to get to daycare today to show his teachers.

I wish we found you a year ago!

Many thanks,

Hi Lora

thanks for your advice. I will try your nightly advice. Good news.. except the night time accident, my daughter has not has an accident since Sunday midnight. She back to day care center full time on Monday. The child care center reminded my daughter in regular base for potty and bring the group in potty once a while. I was told she did it at least three time in potty.

The most amazing thing… She came to tell me “pee pee” three time last night after child care center. One time she had pee pee right away. The second time, she had nothing but she refused to leave the potty. So I think she know she needs to go but just need some time. After a while, she told me she is done and left the potty empty. The thrid time she wanted to go, she did the No.2 right away.

My husband and I are very amazing the transition. Thanks a lot on your ebook and email support. I will continue to work on her night time.

thanks Glory

Russ 2.5 days and done

You deserve another star in your crown. We picked last weekend to give it a try. Three day weekend, my husband (Tod) and I both off. It seemed the perfect weekend to get Russ over the last hurtle of potty training. We had to get over the pull-ups for everyone’s sanity. Russ was 37 months old and partially trained. He would use the potty at daycare but not at home for Mommy and Daddy. As the weekend approached we read the book. We got things ready. Then plans started to change as Russ’s rookie league baseball practice was moved to Sat. So the weekend was going to start off with baseball.

Day 1-2 were a lot of work - I caught a stomach bug on top of it.

Day 3 one accident first thing in the morning and the rest of the day we had a big boy. Night 3 dry.

Day 4 we were going through our normal routine of getting up, dress vitamins and out the door for breakfast at school (daycare). Russ has been getting up on his own and I usually tell him to get his cloths and come into my room and dress while am fixing my hair etc. and I noticed he brought clean underwear and I asked if he had wet the ones we put on fresh before he went to bed and he said no and then announced he had to go to the potty. Ever since then, he has been going on his own, which makes it 3 days and 2 nights with out an accident. It is official for me He is potty trained.

I know if have some other issues like using public bathrooms so I might still have some questions but now I know who to ask.

Thank you for the extra push to get this hurdle completed

Respectfully,
ReGina, Tod and of course Russ

Thanks for that great advice! She ended up pooping on the toilet herself and we made a HUGE deal out of it. She glowed, she was so proud of herself. She got to call and tell everyone AND got a big prize!

This is such a magnificent approach to potty training!! I’m telling all my friends about it, even my childcare provider who has 5 children is using it with her youngest because she was so impressed with how quickly and efficiently it worked with my daughter. I am so glad someone told me about it!!!

Supremely Happy!!!
