Which method is that?

Quoting mymothersfood:

Can you tell me where to find more info on this method that you mentioned? I have triplets and one of them does not want to go potty. She is very strong will. One is fully done and the third one is half way trained. Need all the help that I can get. Thanks.

I'm having problems potty-training my son to take a "number 2". He always uses the toilet to urinate but won't "number 2".He never does it during the day. Only in the middle of the night like 2 AM. He wears a nighttime pull-up to prevent from BMing on the floor. I have tried putting on him on the toilet asking him to try to push it out. he sits there for a few minutes and says he doesnt have to. Does anyone have any advice?

I have a few tips that might be helpful in helping your little one use the potty. First, start by making it fun. Try to tell them about the potty and what it does. Then try having them take off their diaper/pull up on their own and unzipping or pulling down their pants. Then sit them on the potty and after they go give verbal praise which is needed a lot when starting to potty train and through the process. However, if your child shows no interest in wanting to use the potty don't push it because, they are still young, but if your child shows interest and wants to learn, then go for it!

I honestly let my dd run around butt naked. She loves it, and so far so good. She has peed on the potty twice today. No accidents. She woke up from her nap completely dry.

My son is 2 1/2 and I'm trying to get him trained before #2 Joins us in late January. He doesn't seem to care about potty training. We have tried "bare bottom" and take him all the time...he will pee on the floor and clean it up and he knows where pee and poo goes but nothing....we do rewards etc. He loves it after he does go and will cheer but that is the extent of him caring.

What is the 3 day method???

Kids LOVE games if you have more than one kid turn it into a game and watch the PTing and fun begin.

Put cherries in the toilet and let the boys aim at it.
