Contest has ended! Congratulations to the winners of the 3 Day Potty Training!
This is a topic I could discuss for hours on end. Potty training! I'll never forget how challenging it was to train my first son. I think it took a good year for him to finally "get it." At the time I thought I started training him a bit too young. I started at two and a half years old but he had no interest. I finally had him trained by three and a half but boy did it feel like an eternity! The poor thing would hide under the table when he had to go. I would find him sitting there staring at me petrified with those big brown eyes because he thought he was in trouble. Low and behold, it was too late! Not to mention he was in his underwear. No matter how many prizes I bribed him with, it was no use. I even went as far as putting Milk of Magnesia in his ice cream! (Now don't get scared, the nurse suggested this when I called to ask what I should do.) What happened is that he was completely backed up from all the milk and dairy products so every time he would go, it would hurt. I felt terrible. Then one day it just clicked and he got it! He never looked back.
I started potty training my daughter closer to three and I was getting pretty discouraged. The problem is I needed her to be trained for preschool so I was on crunch time. She turned three in August and school was starting in September. I tried everything I could to get her to go but she wasn't into it. I started getting desperate at this point. I did a ton of reading when I discovered something that changed how I felt about potty training. It's called 3 Day Potty Training and it is fabulous! Of course I was a little bit of a skeptic at first. Once I finally had my hands on this guide, I was determined to get the job done! I did exactly what Lora suggested. I got rid of all the diapers and the pull-ups in my house. I kept O. in her underwear and watched her. I studied everything. I even went as far as putting the potty seat in the living room! What scared me the most was putting her to bed without a pull- up. To my surprise, she woke up dry. From that moment on, I knew it was going to be a success. Now don't get me wrong, there were accidents here and there but according to this method, that's to be expected. So, next thing I knew it was time for preschool. Off she went in her big girl underwear. I was one proud, happy Mama!
