Suggestions are very helpful... my 3 year old had shown no interest in toilet training but after reading this I realised he might have been hindered by the pull ups he was wearing, so after getting rid of them and a few accidents - I think we are nearly there!! Good on you, Gina Ford, and thank you!!

It was nice to have step by step guide, especially since I'm clueless when it comes to babies, kids and all things related. Just like her "Contented Little Baby Book", you have to be committed and willing to spend a lot of time and effort in the beginning to get any reasonable results.

Not that it hasn't been a VERY special challenge to potty train Atticus, and we're still a ways a way from getting him completely there, we're on the right track.

I found all the suggestions a great help. It helps first time mums like myself to understand how to handle this new territory. The title is a bit untrue for me, as putting time deadlines on potty training, can be very stressful. It's now been week two and my little one is doing brilliantly. I am just following the signals with the help of good advice from this lovely book.

Was more like 10 days for us but sticking with the method (after you have established your child is ready) really works. I was beginning to despair at the end of day 2 because my son was showing NO awareness of being wet at all, even when he was sitting in the puddle, but then it was suddenly like something switched in his mind on day 3. It was exhausting but glad it's over now. The method is simple and pretty clearly explained. Worth looking at if you are at the potty training stage or leading ...more
Being a 'Contended Baby' advocate I was keen to give this a try, but in a week? Sorry, not this time! Max is obviously not 'ready' yet, even though he'll be three in two months time. The potty doesn't interest him and he hates being without a nappy - even 'Thomas the Tank Engine' pants won't tempt him... I'll leave it a while before attempting to take the nappies away again

رغم صغر حجم الكتاب إلا أنه غطى جميع التفاصيل التي تحتاج الأم أن تعرفها لتدريب طفلها على الحمام ، مرجع ممتاز جداً لبداية ناجحة وسهلة و مريحة لهذه المرحلة المقلقة للوالدين.

I was curious about the method and now it's clear. I agree that the most difficult one is on day one, so I prepared myself for that. Unfortunately, my kid is not totally ready so we move back to the preparation stage.

verdict still out on this one as not supposed to start this potty training business until kiddo is 18 months old. that's a lot of diapers in the meantime, but training sorted in one week - i'm in!

Phew - finished with it. Some good advice. I used it more as a reminder of what to expect and when to progress. Fingers crossed, this is the last time I will need it!

Very instructional, which was what I wanted. This program worked well for my kids, and they were trained in about a week and a half.
