So we eventually did the 3 day method end of october 2012 with our 26 month old boy and I have to say it was pretty horrible as he seemed to have no idea when he was about to wee and pretty well weed everywhere for the first day and a half! He absolutely hated weeing on himself and spent most of the day in tears (as did I!), and worse still, ended up being scared of the potty. Afternoon of day 2 my husband came up with a great idea which was to paint our 2 red and green ikea potties (fantastic buy at $4.95 each and lots of room up front for wilies!) so they looked like a ladybird and a frog! This fixed the potty fear. After day 4 we decided that since he still had no idea when the wee was coming, we would just take him to the potty every hour, as he was weeing pretty frequently at this stage. Long story short, we progressed from there, to now having very few accidents (couple of drops in undies occasionally) and about to ditch the night nappies. So I would say that the 3 day method was a great 'kick-start' to toilet training, but in the end we had to do it the 'long way'. I've since been told the 3 day method works much better for girls, but Im still glad we tried it, as he is basically toilet trained in less than 3 months, and not even 2 and a half yet (have also progressed recently to the big boy toilet as well). For those of you who the 3 day method doesnt work for, I borrowed a book from my local library called 'The no-cry potty training solution' and would highly recommend it. Good luck to you all, and goodbye nappies!
