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!!!!!!

This is a review of this book which I now hate and also advice to any parents who have no idea where to start with potty training or who are buying this book because they are struggling.

Ok so having had two completely opposite experiences with potty training with both a boy and a girl I felt compelled to write a review for this book. I bought this book 2 1/2 years ago when I began training my now 4 1/2 year old daughter. She took to potty training really easily at first and was dry at night before she was dry during the day. Then about 6 months in came a bout of constipation followed by holding her poos in and 2 1/2 years later, lots of tears and paediatrician appointments she is only now potty trained. I can honestly say without hesitation that if you have a child struggling with potty training, this book will make it worse, put lots of pressure on you, and make you feel like you are doing something wrong. A child will be potty trained when they are ready and at no other time. I could have offered my daughter the mooon on a stick but she was terrified of going to the toilet. I followed a lot of the advice over what to do in these situations and it made no difference to her. She ended up so impacted she has spent the last two years on laxatives to try and put things right.

When it came to potty training my son we decided to take a completely different approach and ditch anything I have ever read from Gina Ford. I didn't do anything. I didn't use pull ups, that's the only thing I agree with. They don't work in my opinion. I reminded him every now and then, didn't use reward charts, didn't plan it with military precision like some kind of crazy person. He is happy with a kiss and a high 5 and is clean, dry day and night after 3 weeks. No pressure, no stress.

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.

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 wasn't overly impressed by this book despite all the good reviews. There isn't any advice as such in the book that you can't find online or by talking to other people. It made me realise that there isn't really an art to potty training just consistency and giving children the opportunity to go when they need to.
