Hi Lora,

Thanks for your response and support. Hooray! We’re technically on day 5. Yesterday, day 4, Rohan went all day without any accidents! Amazing. And I took him on an outting and he did great! He’s continued to keep his bed dry at nap and nights - 3 nights in a row! It’s all so great. I still feel that we’re in the learning stage - and I’m extra cautious. But I can’t believe how well he’s really doing. I see the next step for us being getting him to sit on a toilet (right now he’s into his little potty). But I’m fine sticking with the potty for a time. Thanks for your method - I found it so helpful. And really one of the best things is your willingness to connect as mentor - that was great. Anyway - just wanted to say thanks and let you know what a success the whole thing has been.

Thanks,

Jenna

Mirelle’s potty training

Dear Lora

After having gone three days of potty training with Mirelle, my little 4 year old preemie, she had finally got it right! I’m so thankful to you for your encouragement initially I do have my doubts.

Now watching her play and suddenly see her rushing to me and dragging me to her potty made me so proud of her!

I have a little problem though. What do I do when I bring her out for her medical appointments! Will she get used to the “Big” potty in hospital washrooms or shopping malls! The idea of putting her on diapers was very tempting. Since she could sign me when she need to go, surely she would do that even if she’s on diapers?

What do you think?

Once desperate but now happy Mom

No reply needed to this…I realize you are busy.

But one little story for you–

After 5 days of wearing real undies (2 days after 3 Day Potty Training)…a dear friend who had her 2nd baby, 8 years after her first–wanted to see us before she had to go back to work. She lives 1.5 hours away.

Was dying to see the new baby and her! So off we went on our first road trip and not in diapers!

I keep a spare pair of everthing in the car….tee-shirt, pants/shorts, undershirt and underwear.

So for our road trip I was covered–but grabbed an old gatorade bottle.

Figured he would have to potty on the roadtrip. Can you guess….my first child. Some other moms I knew had some porta potty in their car–they have girls. I explained to my son–your words–you are in charge. It’s your body, you have to let me know when you have to potty. OK? He said OK.

So off we go…(I admit, I did not give him much to drink before we left, so that we could make decent time)….about 30 minutes into the trip he informs me he has to go. So I immediately pulled way over off the side of the interstate….nice flat area….way off the burm–jumped out, ran around to his side of the car–got him out and it dawned on me right then and there!

Hey, he’s a boy, why did I bring a plastic bottle?!? Helped him get his pants down and said aim for the grass big guy! Did our best to make sure the wind was at our back–He was awesome and enjoyed it–and everytime he said he had to go, he did–so not completely taken with doing it outdoors–thank goodness! I think this is when he mastered the whole standing up to pee and enjoying it! So take a road trip–vs. some plastic Peter Potty!

Also to let you know….in our 2 months since using your method and book–he has only had 2 accidents –one at pre-school and one in the park after having to go but saw condition of potty in park….I offered him the opportunity to go around the back of building, but he said no, it was okay…but he had to have a BM–got bothered by condition of potty–few minutes later, had his BM–so grateful for the back up clothes & told him these things happen, no big deal…etc. –but no set backs what-so-ever.

Again, best $24-25 I spent.

Thanks & smiles right back at ya!
