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.

I'm Pro-Gina on the understanding that she is a professional and most of us using her books will be mothers (so she does have a style that is suited to getting the job done and this may feel a bit protocol-driven or restrictive for some mums). That said I actually love a protocol, so we followed her advice, almost to the letter, except of course the putting the child on the potty every 15 mins for 5 min at a time which is just going to drive you both berserk, and our 26mo daughter took about 3-4 days of hit and miss then has been dry almost all the time ever since, so it really worked beautifully.

As with most things parenting, most of the mountain is YOU feeling confident, and having read the book and ticked off that you are ALL ready (and it is a team effort, partners!), you will hopefully feel able to tackle what can be quite daunting.

Having decided that by guidelines in the book our little girl was ready (apart from not always doing what she is told :), and got the potty and toilet seats etc. ready ages in advance so they were familiar, we then bought some bright, clear girl's potty training books and having read the books together she just said 'I want use potty'. We asked if she was sure, she insisted so we went to the shops there and then and bought her big girl pants and we were off. First 48 hours I did wonder if we had jumped the gun - the front room carpet will never be the same - but suddenly it clicked and she was able to go every time we put her on the potty and hardly ever in between times. Especially useful: writing down every time your little one 'goes' so after a day or two you will feel you know how often to pester them about it. This gives you confidence, you relax, your child won't become irritated by being constantly asked, it all goes better.

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.
