A proven six-step plan to help you toilet train your preschooler quickly and successfully, from potty-training expert, Pied Piper of Poop, and social worker Jamie Glowacki.
Worried about potty training? Let Jamie Glowacki, potty-training expert, show you how it’s done. Her 6-step, proven process to get your toddler out of diapers and onto the toilet has already worked for tens of thousands of kids and their parents. Here’s the good news: your child is probably ready to be potty trained EARLIER than you think (ideally, between 20–30 months), and it can be done FASTER than you expect (most kids get the basics in a few days—but Jamie’s got you covered even if it takes a little longer). If you’ve ever said to yourself:
** How do I know if my kid is ready?
** Why won’t my child poop in the potty?
** How do I avoid “potty power struggles”?
** How can I get their daycare provider on board?
** My kid was doing so well—why is he regressing?
** And what about nighttime?!
Oh Crap! Potty Training can solve all of these (and other) common issues. This isn’t theory, you’re not bribing with candy, and there are no gimmicks. This is real-world, from-the-trenches potty training information—all the questions and all the ANSWERS you need to do it once and be done with diapers for good.

Jamie not only has years of experience, but she also has obvious intuition about toilet training and toddler discipline. Not to mention she is realistic. So does tell you that your kid will be toilet trained in 3 days flat (as some books claim) but rather talks about the blocks on the road to toilet training success. Complete the blocks / stepping stones, one by one at the child's pace and he or she will get the message and start showing initiative about all-things toilet!
My husband and I followed the book with our daughter who was 27 months old when we started toilet training. We made mistakes but nothing too major, and we checked ourselves against the guidelines of the book. The first 3 days were intense and so exhausting that we felt tempted to give up. But on the 4th day our daughter turned a corner, moved on to block 2, and everything became steadily easier. Our goal was to have her fully toilet trained by 30 months as Jamie's book admits that things get a lot harder at that age. We started night training her around 29 months and she wet the bed about once a week for maybe two months. Now she initiates all her day and nighttime toilet visits.
So it took our daughter about 2 months to stop having day accidents and about another 2 months to stop having night accidents. 4 months is great in comparison to a year or even 2 years of begging and pleading with a toddler to use the toilet. I am satisfied and never expected it to be a 3 day affair, especially since we started toilet training at a time when she really wanted to start testing the parental boundaries in a lot of areas.
The book has lots of advice and solutions for parents who have already attempted toilet training and hit a stale-mate and also for the more difficult age groups like 3yrs+
I appreviated this book so much that I bought Jamie's other book "oh crap, I have a toddler" and loved it just as much!

It’s insanely repetitive, honestly the book could be half as long but worst of all we followed the instructions to the letter and our daughter HATED every second of her potty training experience. I personally do not agree about not forewarning you’re child about their move to a potty or not rewarding them for a job well done. I also don’t agree that it’s never to early to potty train, it clearly was for us and honestly I feel like it has hindered our future attempts. I also find the tone of the book patronising.
So, in conclusion, great if you can continue on with this for the full 6 weeks with no pants.
If your nursery/childminder say they are fine with commando, they will be, until they have an accident and another child slips in it.
