Anyone tried the 3 Day Potty Training method?

Have any of the Mommies on here tried and had success with the 3 Day Potty Training method? We are about to attempt it this Memorial Day weekend (fun!) with my 20month old son. Any advice or tips?

  • It works best when children are a little older from what I have heard.

  • Each kid is different, so if she's showing interest & signs of being ready, then who knows, maybe it will work.. All my kids were late trainers... We just FINALLY managed to get my son, who will be 5 in June, fully trained... I tried a bunch of different suggestions that worked for other mom's, but nothing worked... My son loves playing video games, so I started making him earn his gaming time by going potty... 15 mins for #1 & 30 for #2... It worked for #1 but it wasn't until I started taking his games away completely until he started pooping in the pot, that he finally gave in & is fully trained now... woo hoo! If he's ready, then what's the harm in trying? But if he's not showing signs of being ready, I wouldn't push too hard... GL!!

  • Never tried it with my son, he's in the middle of potty training, I think if your having trouble, try this method but understand most kids do at their own pace, good luck
