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.

All the signs she was ready - I followed this to a tee. She was 2yrs 5 months when we started. We did everything she said, where it was humanly possible, but it just didn't work. And my child was very happy to sit on the potty for the first 3 days.

The problem with this book is not the concept - clearly it works for lots of people - great. But if it doesn't work, there is no advice whatsoever. All the advice is for situations that do not exist or for questions that are not relevant.

I have given 2 stars, as there are a few good ideas, so not total rubbish, however, as always, Gina makes you feel like a bad parent if it doesn't go like clockwork.

Though many wees do go in the loo (no poos yet) every day there are 3-6 wet pants. I have persisted with this for 2 months. Stickers, rewards, not getting cross. This doesn't work for everyone. If you are banking on this being over in a week, maybe you'll be lucky, but be prepared that it may not work.

With hindsight, I would have used pull-ups and only gone cold turkey when they were dry.

Format: Paperback
Before this book, my two-and-a-half year old daughter was always happy to sit on the potty. I decided to use this book, tempted by the fact that she could be clean and dry in just one week. Don't be fooled! This book is prescriptive, rigid, inflexible and makes no account of your child becoming annoyed by the constant asking and reminding about the potty which is sitting right beside them. After all, who wouldn't become totally irritated and put-off 'performing' being asked every few minutes if you need to wee or poo? By the middle of Day Two my poor daughter was crying at the mention of anything toilet-related and distressed by the whole situation. She was refusing to sit on the potty and constantly wetting and soiling herself. There was not one success. We were both stir-crazy by being stuck in the same two rooms of the house for so long with the dreaded P-thing looming in the room, reminding us what a failure we had both become. Then I refer to the book and find that by Day Two we should be having more successes than failures and my child really should have cottoned on. At lunchtime I gave up for my daughter's self-confidence. It has taken three months to get her even close to sitting on a toilet or potty again and I can say without doubt that the Gina Ford Experience damaged her significantly. She is still not clean or dry (although I am trying again) and is now nearly three. I am consumed with feelings of being a failure and three months later, I know she still remembers the experience. If I could give this book no stars I would. Ms. Ford, with no children of her own, has a lot to answer for.

I bought this book because I thought that I would be able to potty train my 2 year old in one week from start to finish. In fact, you have to go through a preparation stage and this can take much longer than one week. Consequently, in that respect the title, in my opinion, is misleading. It should be "Potty Train in One Week providing the Child is Really Ready".

Other than that, the advice is mostly common sense and practical. I have not succeeded yet but hopefully once stage one is out of the way, I will be able to finish potty training within a week, as the book promises.
