  • What signs is he showing that he's ready?

  • The 3 day method!! It's AWESOME! I have the ebook, if you want it. DS had 30+ accidents day 1, 6-7 day 2, and none day 3. He's had less than 10 accidents since, and that was in September.

  • I also did the 3 day method. I waited until my kids were 3 though.

  • You don't need a book. This is what I did and my kids were trained in 3 days - I waited until they turned 3. Then go to the store with him and buy a lot of big boy underwear. Get all the characters that he loves. Wait until you have 3 full days to devote to this. Don't leave the house. The day before say "Tomorrow you will wear big boy underwear!!! Yay! We are so proud of you!!" The next morning put him in undies. Take him to the bathroom every half hour or so. Be very positive. Don't yell for accidents. He will have some. When he goes on the potty make a big fuss. You can put him in pull ups at night. That comes later. The next day should be much better. He will even be able to tell you when he has to go. But still take him every hour. The third day will be even better. My kids were trained by day 3. The important thing is to never go back to daytime diapers no matter what. Good luck!!!!!

  • Google "toilet training readiness" for good info on readiness. (You might want to private message the mom who offered the ebook in case she does not look at this post again.) GL!!

  • Is he showing signs? My son potty trained himself in a week at 3 years old.
