HELP! My husband and I are potty training our 3 year old twins (boy/girl) and it is NOT going well. We decided to do the immersion technique - where you take the diapers off and put training pants on. This is supposed to work in 3 days but we are on day 2 and only one twin has gone pee in the potty and that was only once. Should we stop and try again later or keep trying?

Thanks Julia! Don't know why, but I never thought of videos. The twins love watching movies so this just might help. Thanks again!

We tried and tried potty training with our daughter using pull ups, and it just didn't work. When we did try the immersion technique it did work quickly, I'd say about 3 days. I think one thing that really helped was the movie Bear in the Big Blue House - Potty Time with Bear. We played this while we did the training. She loved it, and even months later when she relapsed a little, we showed it to her and she was accident free again. It might be worth giving it a try!
