I bought this book when my daughter was 2, and I felt under pressure (from other mums) to start potty training. Using Gina Ford's easy to understand criteria, it was clear that she was no where near ready to potty train. When she was 2 and a quarter we looked at the book again and I gave it a go. In 3 days we were both totally stressed out and I decided it was time to go back to nappies. 6 weeks ago (aged 2yrs 9 months), she fulfilled all the criteria - following the instructions in the book she was completey dry in 4 days (has had two accidents since then) and completely clean in 3 weeks. This book does work BUT it's crucial to follow Gina Ford's guidance on "readiness" (can they tell wet from dry, can they dress and undress themselves without your help, can they follow simple instructions). If your child isn't ready, it will take much longer than a week.... oh, and YOU have to be ready too!!!!!!

I was at my wits end about potty training. My son was 3yrs old and was not at all interested in the potty. I tried all the tips the Health Visitor gave me, leave the potty for him to get used to, don't pressure him, let him do it in his own time. That's all very well, but when your son is about to start Pre-School and they won't accept him unless he is clean, you start to panic. And i did ! Then i happened to spot a book in a leaflet "Potty Training In One Week by Gina Ford". I was sceptical but desperate to try anything that might possibly work. I read the book in the evening when the children were in bed, and then resolved to embark on Stage Two the following day. That was a week ago now. And at the end of day two we had no accidents and he was fully clean during the day. And as from day five he is now dry at night time. I am amazed with this book and would strongly recommend anyone to try it. In fact, I think this book should be given out by all Health Visitors and available on the NHS !!!! Thank You Gina Ford you have made a stressed out mum in Swindon a very happy, proud and contented one.

If you already have "from contended baby to confident child"do not buy this, as the information is just repeated with just a few added case studies. If not, then this is probably the potty training book to buy. Gina as usual, has great advice and it does work eventually. Were still in the starting blocks but its given us hope for our stubborn but intelligent 34 month boy.

My son is 4 and starting school in September and was still in nappies until 3 days ago. I have tried everything and nothing has worked. Buying this was a last resort for me however I wish I would have bought it last year! I found the book very helpful and it seemed to point out where I was going "wrong". It is full of useful tips to help you. Day 1 - all I did was follow my son around cleaning up the wee (the book suggests you take them to the toilet every 15mins but there was no way he would do this) and by the end of the day he had done 3 wees on the toilet and 8 on the floor! Day 2 - I was quite shocked, he got up and put himself on the toilet and had a wee. At lunchtime he had a wee just as he reached the toilet! And for the rest of the day he was dry. Day 3 - No puddles to clean up!!! He is so proud we are going shopping tomorrow to buy a present for being such a good boy!
Hopefully that is the end and he will go to school the same as the others. I am now going to give it a month and start on my younger son!
I would recommend this to anyone who is struggling!

I bought this book, did everything it said, started training when it said i should, and it didn't work. That was approx 2 months ago and my son is still not clean.
Please don't misunderstand - i think the advice given in this book is good, and the book is written in a easy to read style. However i just thought i would point out that it doesn't always work 'in a week'.
Hence three stars for the good (but unsuccessful) advice.

Format: Paperback
I have attempetd to potty train my son on three occassions, the second attempt being the most traumatic and distressing experience of my son's life (and quite possibly mine too !!) During this 2nd attempt my son developed an ear infection and so I stopped the process. His, out of character, aggressive and disruptive behaviour, which began during potty training, continued long after potty training ceased. It turned out that his hearing had become significantly impaired as a result of the ear infection and his behavioural problems were related to this and not, as I had first thought, potty training.
6 months down the line, with gromets in place, I knew I needed to start the dreaded process of potty training all over again and the thought of it brought me out in a cold sweat ! Not knowing how to begin to tackle it, especially with the 'ghosts' of past experiences firmly in mine and my son's mind, I turned to 'Potty Training in One Week' for some guidance.
I have followed the Gina Ford Contented Baby Book for both my children and swear by the routines outlined in it, so I was already aware of and impressed with Gina's approach. I bought the book and followed the guidelines. My three year old son, who had had a horrible experience of potty training and who was vehemently against even looking at, let alone sitting on, a potty was potty trained in 8 days ! I am still in shock at how easy it was once I had the friendly support of the Gina Ford book.
During the 8 days I can honestly say there were NO stressful situations, my son was happy and proud of his daily imrpoving achievements - stress-free potty training - I can still hardly believe it ! Buy it!
