    We did the three day boot camp when Jasper was 27 months old- it took him two days and he never had an accident after that!

    I have a 16 month old i am struggling to get her to use the potty she was doing it at first then she just stopped using it and she wont use it anymore help

    Great list! The only thing I see missing is a “reward”. We used M & M’s for initial training. Plain and not peanut. We rewarded for trying and successes. It only lasted a few weeks, but was a big success. Good luck to all in training :)

    I am not about buying all the gadgets they say you need for something, but this list is actually pretty good, and I found something new that might be a good idea, the faucet extender.

    Briana – 16 months is pretty early if it’s not done very intuitively for your daughter, because they don’t always have the communication skills kick in at the right time, they might be distracted by whatever else they’re doing–except maybe eating a snack while watching TV, they don’t multitask much at this age, so switching gears might be a challenge for her developmentally right now…not that there’s a problem, she’s probably right where she should be, but if she’s fearing failing, or more interested in playing with her toys, learning to potty is low on the list. I’ve also heard about some kids don’t like any fanfare at all when they use the potty, so perhaps the attention was fun at first but she doesn’t want a big deal made out of it. Just trying to make suggestions.

    I would recommend checking out a book about elimination communication…EC is “out there” if you’re not used to it, because it talks about how to basically potty train a newborn, but it also offers great ideas in general about how to approach it so that you can tap into a way of thinking that might be just the trick. I need to re-read it since my 22 month old twins are starting to PT, we did a little EC after they were born but we were just exhausted and couldn’t keep up with it. The good thing about a good EC book is that it promotes a non-judgmental attitude for both you and your daughter.
    Overall, I liked this book:

    Good luck!!
