What age is a good age to do the 3 day method of potty training?? My son is 15 months and goes in the potty before bedtime, and stays dry during naps. He doesn't tell me he has to go yet, but usually if I put him on the potty he knows what to do. I know 15 months is young, but honestly most of us were trained by then back in the day :). Any suggestions or thoughts?? And if we do this method, should we never use pull ups?? I know I'm gonna be afraid to take him out at first.Answer Question

I don't know about the 3 day method but with both my girls until they recognize the signal to go, bar bottom, why do more laundry. When they get it I put them in the thick cloth undies from Gerber (Target, Babies r us) while at home. When we went out I used pull ups till I trusted her. It took about a week for my youngest and a month for my oldest. I still have plenty of cloth undies and extra pants to change her into and I know were the potty is in every store we go into. I take my youngest in to most stores and use the potty first just to make sure. She holds it for about 4 hours. I have her go about every 2 when out and about.

Attempting to potty train under the age of two puts unnecessary stress on the parent and child and can actually prolong the process. If he wants to go then by all means let him go but I think it's too early to be attempting a routine and actually expect him to potty train in a reasonable amount of time.
