I have been potty training for two weeks now, and we have gone on our first entire week of no accidents. I am so proud of her progress. I am going out tonight to get some thicker training panties and the rubber pants to put over them for night time and outings. I am as of sunday going to start venturing out diaperless. With a change of clothes and panties of course :)

my son will be 23 mths on the 13th.. We bought him a potty 3 weeks ago and he uses it as a chair. When I try to sit him on it without a diaper he gets mad and says NO! I'm trying to teach him that his "chair" is actually his potty. I am 20 and he is my first child does anyone have any idea how to make it easier on him?

ya. i ask jude often if he's ready to be a big boy and use the potty and he always says"baby!" and hugs me so i think he is still wanting to be my baby and isnt quite ready just yet.. which is fine.i want him to not have to grow up any faster than he's ready too.... but saving the money on diapers sure would be great!

I went no diapers on my little girl all day during the day and just cleaned up after her. didn't get it from this article just what I did. I also went and bought big girl panties for her and she didn't like when they got wet. One day it just clicked. I do have to add this. Potty training works only when the child is READY for it. Not because the parent is. So if your child is showing anxiety to trying or gets upset over it stop. It doesn't do any good to force it. The more you push the more they hate it. If you get it to work congrats but if it doesn't it's no loss, just try again later. There's nothing wrong with pulling out the diapers again. My daughter was potty trained all but bedtime since the beginning of this month, that's really early. But while we were trying anytime she said no she didn't want to try I just said ok, and I told her constantly that if she had to go to tell me. Also it's good if the child goes in with the parent and sees them use the big potty. Helps the idea connect with them. Good luck! I don't have a washer either which is why when we went no diapers I just let her run around with nothing on her lower half unless other ppl were here. She still wears a diaper at naptime and bedtime but her naptime ones are always dry. I feel it's better than hand washing sheet after sheet. I hope you find something that works for you and your son. But remember this is a big step, if he doesn't seem ready or if he has accidents make sure you let him know it's more than ok, that made all the difference with my daughter. I think because she felt in control it made the transition easier. Sorry for all the rambling. hehe whatever you choose hope it goes well! :)

i reeeeeeeeeally want to potty train jude, BUT and its a big BUT, we do not have a washer and dryer in our apartment at this time, so any dirty sheets and undies is what is keeping me..... i so want to though.....its a major fight to get him to sit still to have his butt changed.....

I think the "beauty" of the method is it makes them uncomfortable. Who wants to have wet pants? haha I think that's the key. When she has accidents, I clean up the accident first and then her...kinda mean I guess to make her wait but she HATES being "dirty"

My little boy just doesnt want to use the potty at all.... I have tried the toilet too but no show. I praise him for sitting on the toilet but he wants to get off straight away. I think i will give the 3 day method a try now. fingers crossed heh

My 23 month old told me "no more diapers mommy" so I did a quick search online and found the 3 day method and tried it. We are 5 weeks into potty training and rarely have accidents during the day or naps but are still having one or two a night. I am not doing diapers at night because when she told me "no more diapers" we did a huge parade around the house and packed all the diapers away. I didn't want to bring them back haha

it didn't work for me. we were at the end of our ropes trying to potty train, than Nannie come out and somehow got my daughter potty trained in like a day. it's awesome. it's only been a couple weeks, and she only wears pullups at bedtime and naptime.

i get a parents.com news letter via my email, and they had an article on 22 months and two week olds, and that method was laid out, details and all....basicaly, you hole up in the house with a "potty" partner and your toddler for three whole days and go no diapers (unless sleeping) for pretty much ever. drink lotsa beverages and whisk the baby to the potty every time any fluid/solids come out, and do a potty dance and lots of praise when even a drop hits the potty. also you and the potty partner get the dance when you go..... the article was waaaaaaaay more in depth and much more convincing than my run down, but it really seems like if you commit 100% it could work.....
