Amazon's Customer Review: Toilet Training in Less Than A Day
The Azrin-Foxx toilet-training method really works. For a third of the price of a case of Huggies from Costco, you can get rid of diapers forever.
I used this book's method to potty-train my son three months ago. We spent from 9am to 2pm following the procedures outlined in the book, but he really had it down by noon. He had four accidents in the first week and a half, and none since. If I had been mindful of how long it had been since he last went to the bathroom, a couple of those accidents could have been avoided, but making the switch from changing diapers after the fact to a more proactive approach can take parents a little while too. I was concerned about putting him in Pull-Ups at bedtime, thinking they might feel enough like diapers that he'd revert to pre-training days, but it hasn't been a problem.
This book was written in the 1970's - those troubling times when moms were homemakers instead of fighter-pilots - and the text reflects the sensibilities of the era.
One caveat: The book is written for training children with well-developed cognitive abilities and motor skills (the book recommends about 2-1/2 for girls, 3 for boys). If you need to train your child at a younger age, this book may not work for you - because children develop at different rates, the book gives has a readiness test to help you evaluate if your child has the skills necessary to successfully complete the training.
When your child is ready for potty-training, start with this book's method. If you provide the recommended follow through this will likely be the last book on the subject you'll ever need.
We used this method with great success with our first two kids. Did it again with our 3rd and she got it pretty well, except for bowl movements and the book doesn't have much advice to offer, just that they'll get it because kids always pee when they poop.
Not this girl, she rarely pees and poos at the same time. She did pretty well the first week with only a handful of accidents. Now she is fully trained to pee in the potty, but poops in her pants about 4 out of 5 times. What do I do now? 10 practices in poopy pants is a huge mess of poop everywhere on the potty and her legs---yuck! I make her clean out the poopy training pants and have even tried cold sits baths.
What else can I do?
PTC Comment: Have you ever noticed if there is a timely pattern to her going poo? For example, after lunch, after nap, same time of the day, etc. If so, try to schedule her potty times at that time as well. Here is the name of an article that may also help you with this issue, it is called "Child Refused to go Poop in the Potty" .
