3 Day Potty Training With Lora Jensen: Day 1

on March 30 | in Potty Training | by | with 66 Comments

Yesterday was “P Day.”

“P” stands for pee-pee, poop, and PANTIES. I’m sure you know where this is going.

On the recommendation of a friend I downloaded Lora Jensen’s “Three Day Potty Training” method. It took about 20 minutes to get through the whole book. Gotta love that!

A few interesting things about Lora’s method:

  • She makes a case for not asking a child if they need to go potty, instead saying “Tell me when you need to go potty, ok?” It’s subtle, but I like her point that it helps the child learn when they need to go potty instead of becoming dependent on caregivers to tell them when to go.
  • She considers using training pants or vinyl covered panties “crutches,” saying “You shouldn’t be going anywhere during the three days of training and after the three days, there won’t be a need.”
  • She discourages letting children sit on the potty for long periods of time, saying “Let them see if they need to go, and if nothing, take them down. Your action of picking the child up and running them to the bathroom to do business helps the whole thing to ‘click’ with the child.”

If nothing else, her book helped me shift from overwhelmed to confident and excited. She provides a clear strategy and lists items that will be needed and tasks that should be done ahead of time. Check. Check. Aaaand check!

This morning Katie went pee in her potty right after waking up and received her much anticipated first pair of panties. We don’t use external reward systems in our parenting, but we decided to make an exception just this once and had lots of goodies ready. Totally unnecessary. Katie wore those panties like they were Cinderella’s ball gown.

Early morning was super easy. Loving her new panties (and the action of pulling them up and down) she went pee in the potty a zillion times. I got over confident.

10:24 a.m — First Accident

Poop! I wasn’t even in the room like I was supposed to be. Lora insists that we keep the child in our sight the entire time, but Katie was doing so well I forgot it was my job to ensure her success. So when Gigi yelled accident and Katie started crying I ran her to the potty, chastising myself the whole way. It broke my heart so see her so upset, but I sat her on the potty and cheered because she “finished” on the potty. I’m surprised I didn’t give myself a hernia gyrating and cheering like a madwoman, but it would have been worth it even if I had. The sight of mommy’s funny dance had Katie wanting to try again a couple minutes later!

10:30 am – First Rebound

Goes pee in the potty 3 times! Just getting her mojo back, I think.

Not a Play By Play

I doubt you want a play-by-play, so here’s the short version: Katie had an accident during naptime even though she emptied her bladder a zillion times before we laid down. Also, I got her a little too preoccupied playing in the backyard and she had a BM but she came running to me and tried to make it to the potty. My heart has never before swelled with pride over poop, but it did today. We had a lot of fun outside though.

As day 1 wrapped up, Katie began encouraging me in the restroom. I guess after almost twelve hours of discussing and celebrating every potty success she felt it was fair game ; – ) Overall, Katie had a fantastic day. She received quality time, love and support. She was celebrated and so were her successes. I really enjoyed it too, although it was pretty exhausting. I’m heading to bed early in hopes that I’ll be coherent enough to recognize her “need to go” signs tomorrow. Guess that probably depends on how many times I have to change the sheets tonight.

    I have never read this book. But it sounds just perfect! I always say it is more about training US in the first week. Recognizing their signals, staying close to them, Never-ever letting them know we are frustrated accident after accident. My best advice is even after a couple of weeks, when you start going out in panties, and she seems to be doing perfectly… still keep the same attitude (and ALWAYS a spare pair of panties and pants) That is when the frustration can really creep in and can make them feel embarrassed. Accidents are no big deal! EVEN IN PUBLIC! (kind of tricky when you are standing in the toy isle at Target with a huge puddle under their feet!) : ) I love that you are taking such a postivie approach! I’m always so sad to see moms dread potty training. Have fun with it!

  2. Heather says:

    Thanks for your encouragement, Jessica. We understand that children need positive reinforcement to change their thinking, but I am finding that I need it just as much. Advice and encouragement from other moms has been a lifeline as I prepared and began this process.

  3. Des says:

    I totally agree with being with them a solid 3 days or really even the whole week. Also YES on the positive reinforcement. Jumping and screaming when they do good and getting them so excited! the only thing I do and I don’t view it as negative reinforcement, but when they have an accident I always so “Oh yucky! that’s gross. Isn’t it gross to poop in your panties, etc.” not making THEM feel bad or pointing out that they pooped and it’s gross, but just bringing about the understanding that pooping or peeing in your panties isn’t good. But again, that’s just what I do.
    We do the candy or fruit snack or something she loves every time she pees and then if there are no accidents after a set number of days, she gets a reward like a toy she really wanted. But I am TOTALLY a reward mommy, so that’s just me. (blame it on being an aunt first!)
    You’re doing great. From my experience and talking around with moms THE MOST important thing is consistency on YOUR part.
    So keep it up!

  4. Kim says:

    Go Katie! I just wanted to say that, as far as nightime goes, I think it’s great to give this method a shot. But there are lots of kids that just sleep really deeply and don’t wake up to pee. I totally agree that letting them wet the bed a few times is well worth it if it trains their brains to send wake up messages, rather than just relying on pull-ups, which can have the opposite effect. BUT, just because something works great for someone else’s child doesn’t necessarily mean it will work for you child. All that to say that should you, or anyone else, have to use pull-ups at night, this should NOT be viewed as failure. I am opposed to limiting water intake in the evenings because I think we are, in general, a chronically dehydrated society, and I do not think that hydration is the cause of bedwetting. For some older children, I have read that mineral deficiency can be a factor.
    Anyhow, as a mother of five, let me just say that all of them were different, and I don’t think there is any “one size fits all” solution for any aspect of parenting. I do, however, think that learning from one another is both wise and appropriate, as long as we hold sacred our own mothering instinct, and trust it above all other voices.
    It sounds like this is a great little potty training program that will work well for most kids, so I wish you and Katie great success!

    • Heather says:

      Kim – You make some great points. The nighttime thing is my biggest concern and I’m glad you addressed it. One the one hand I can see how it would be an advantage for Katie if we did both at the same time. On the other hand, I am going to have a newborn in late August/early September and I need my rest both now and then.

      I agree with you about dehydration as well. I actually sent Lora a message regarding this recommendation because in the 2-3 hours before bedtime (recommended limited intake of fluids) we are playing in the sunshine in TEXAS. Water is essential and I don’t know how to get around that. I know I can encourage more water earlier in the day, and I know that if I drink a big glass of water before bed that I have to get up a million times, but I feel unsure of how to proceed with Katie.

      It seems like limiting fluids doesn’t teach a child to wake when the have to go. How THAT happens I have no idea.

  5. Meredith says:

    There is a pad from One Step Ahead – http://www.onestepahead.com/catalog/product.jsp?productId=6773&cmSource=Search – that we live by. When we put EK to bed with panties, we always put this down, that way in the middle of the night, if she has an accident, you just take the pad off and not have to change the whole sheet. Makes for a restful night. Keep up the good work!
    .-= Meredith´s last blog ..Down on the Farm =-.

    • Heather says:

      Great suggestion, Meredith! Simple tips like this keep the hassle-factor down and I LOVE that. I am using a pad made for a crib right now but would prefer to have something that covers a larger area.

  6. Jessica says:

    We have done it the same with each kid, only becasue it seems to work for us. But we do undies all day including nap, then we put diapers on for overnight. Thain did fine overnight right from the start, but Ava didn’t. And our dr said sometimes their tiny bladders simply CAN’T hold it for 12 hours. And if they are good sleepers, sometimes they won’… See Moret know to get up. We tried overnight with Ava at first, but I was having to get up 3-4 times a night to change sheets, even if she hadn’t had anything to drink. So decided with her, after 1 week of waking up in dry diapers (which includes if she DOES need to go potty, waking us up to take her) then we switched to panties overnight. It didn’t take long because they Don’t like diapers once they are out of them. But about another month.

  7. vanessa says:

    i’m sorry i don’t have any helpful advice heather!! i am so thankful to be blessed with a daughter who is very ambitious and easy to “train” and teach. i had always let her follow me into the restroom when i had to go, that way she would be familiar with the concept. right as she turned 2 years old she showed total interest on her own and would tell me that she needed to go pee pee without me even having to ask her. so i bought one of those small potties and put it in the living room (the room that we spent the most time in), that way when she needed to go she could simply go sit down on her own and go. in addition to that, i rented a video from the library called “once upon a potty”. she watched it and she LOVED it.
    i put her in pull ups at first, but she HATED them. she asked if she could wear undies like mama, so i said “yes” of course. she used the small potty for about 2 weeks, then when she had to go she started telling me that she wanted to use the big girl potty. so i got her a small seat to put on the toilet seat and she started using it every time :) away to storage went the small potty!
    she never had any nap time accidents or night time accidents either… to this day.
    plus, she hates the feeling of being dirty.
    i hope it’s that easy with luke!!!

    i suppose the only actual advice i can give from my experience is the potty in the living room and the video. if all else fails, give it a try!
    good luck on your new adventure!!

  8. Hey, I am a friend of Dr. Cindy’s and found your blog through her. I have a 4 year old and I loosely used this book when we potty trained her at 2. We never used pull ups except on a plane ride a month after ditching diapers because you can’t get out of your seat at all times. We still have issues at night so what we do is wear a cover that is either Mother of Eden brand or Bummis brand, bought from cloth diaper stores. She still feels wet but it does not require an immediate change of sheets. She also sleeps on top of an “ultimate crib sheet” in her big girl bed to contain leaks. She gets very upset about wetting the bed but we also don’t want to limit water intake. Often I will get her up at about midnight when I go to bed and let her use the potty then. That helps but I often forget.

  9. Heather says:

    Thanks, Christy. It’s good to hear from someone that used the same method. I should be getting some cloth trainers that look like panties in the mail tomorrow and I am so excited. I’ve been washing sheets everyday since we started training ; – )

  10. Kate Saab says:

    Hi Heather! I think we met at a cloth diaper party at Dr. Cindy’s last year around this time, before I moved to Argentina. I found your blog through Dr. Cindy’s facebook page and I LOVE it! So much great info! Anyway, I’ve been doing EC with my baby since she was about 7 months old but only for BM’s and it has worked out great. We have only had one or two “dirty” diapers in the last year. She is 20 months now and tells me every time she needs the “loo” to have a BM. Now I’m trying to train her to pee on the loo as well. I have her bare bottomed at home and this seems to work. She tells me almost every time she needs to pee. But I’m scared of night time training! I am due with baby number two as well in early August and I would like to have Mariana completely potty trained by then… so I’ll be checking your blog for anymore advise! The one idea I can offer is to use a soft wool blanket under her at night. Wool is amazing and will repel liquid while at the same time not have to be washed every day but just aired out… just an idea – haven’t tried it yet!

  11. Heather says:

    Hi Kate! I remember meeting you and talking about your big move. I even remember the cute jean skirt you were wearing. LOL! Thanks for sharing your experience. Two “dirty” diapers in a year sounds like heaven. We are considering EC with the next baby but are not fully committed yet. Do you have a blog? You need to! I would love to read about life in Argentina.

    • Kate Saab says:

      I don’t have a blog but maybe I should start one :). I strongly recommend trying EC at least for BMs… using it for everything seems a little daunting to me but I know it has worked for many people. I just hate the thought of my baby sitting in a mess, and I hate changing dirty, smelly diapers! The only problem I have run into is that I still have to sit with my baby on the loo for her to go – ha! Hopefully she will grow out of that soon :). We are extremely “attached” – family bed, family loo :)

  12. Heather says:

    LOL! Love the family loo. A lot of moms have told me the same thing about EC (watching for BM but not the other). Sounds great to me.

  13. [...] a long week of potty training and getting our house ready to list on MLS, Daniel and I were not in the mood to trek to Dallas. [...]

  14. Sili says:

    Ok, I am about to start potty training and have heard a lot about this. I’m nervous and actually was supposed to do this during this holiday weekend but, the weekend got a hold of me before reading the book. I think I will try in a week or so. I am encouraged to see this worked for several people. Though, I still have nerves. I’ll keep you posted and let you know how it goes! ;-)

  15. Ok, I know I am really (really) late on posting this, but I just found your blog via pinterest and I am about to go thru potty training with my daughter. How old was your daughter when you started training? Where there signs that led you to believe that she was ready? Thanks so much!

    • Heather says:

      Hi Melissa! She was 27 months when we started. To be honest I didn’t really recognize any signs. I was pregnant at the time and just knew I didn’t want two little ones in diapers!

  16. Melissa says:

    Hi there

    Thanks for your posts re. the 3 day potty training method. I’m on day 1.5 and it really hasn’t gone well (although it could be worst). He does not tell me when he needs to go and I can never get him into the potty quick enough to finish it there. Also, last night he had several accidents in bed (even after he peed in the potty at 11pm). And that was after giving him no fluids after 6pm. I also woke up several times to take him in the night with no luck. Before we started he would always wake up with a wet diaper. He has had no bowel movement since we started either. A couple of my friends said it worked for them, but they had no nighttime issues and were younger than my son who is almost 3. I’m going to stick it out these three or four days. But my question is…..if it doesn’t ‘work’ in three days what would you recommend doing afterward to continue the potty training, but so that I can get out of my house again and regain some santity in the night.

    thanks
    Melissa

    • Heather says:

      We didn’t find that our daughter was ready for nighttime training so we bought some super-absorbent training pants and let it go. Regarding daytime, each child is so different I can’t really say. Katie was not truly trained in three days, but she had the basic idea and we just went on with our lives. Accidents happened, but we I got better at reading her cues and she got better at communicating her needs. It was a gradual process :) Good luck!

  17. [...] So did some research on that, found some really good, honest view points on it here and here (actually this one is just a link to the first of 5 post, but the rest are listed at the end of the [...]

  18. I generally think 2.5 as a minimum for boys.

  19. Kathryn Lindenberger Nordyke via FB says:

    my son was so much easier than my daughter! he was completely trained by two and a half. took us no time at all.

  20. Tanya Nguyen via FB says:

    I used the 3 day method and stickers. We started at 24 months it was perfect timing. By day 3 my son got it. Good luck

  21. Anna Maijala via FB says:

    My son was actually easier to potty train than my daughter. He started showing signs of being ready shortly after he turned 2, and by 25 months, he was trained. All we did was let him go nakey, and take him to the potty frequently. It took him a few days to get the idea and a couple weeks to get really consistent with it. I say whenever they show signs of being ready, go for it.

  22. My twin boys were practicing until they were 2. But didnt get it until 3. And we’ve had no accidents…unlike my friends’ children who were potty trained earlier.

  23. Bonnie B Lehr via FB says:

    I potty trained my little boy using the “toilet training in less than a day” by Simon and scheuster. It really was more of a weekend thing. He was 25 months old. I actually think it is better to do this younger rather than older for several reasons, some of them outlined in the book. We started on a Thursday .afternoon ( having been preparing him and discussing it for 2 weeks prior) and by sh day afternoon I took him out for the day with big boy undies. Within a month or two he was also refusing night time diapers. I am planning the using the same method with my daughter. It is based on practice, muscle memory, repetition, and praise/reward. It really works!

  24. Michelle Valdes via FB says:

    My son wasn’t ready until he was one month shy of being 3. My daughter, on the other hand, trained herself before she turned 2. lol

  25. Stephanie Spaulding Carruth via FB says:

    I have a friend who all of her kids so far (two boys and a girl) were potty trained before 2. Her oldest was 18 month old, which shocked me since her oldest is a boy. My oldest son didn’t PT until over 3. My youngest son is PTing right now and doing a great job at just over 2. I don’t necessarily notice a difference in age with friends that do EC vs those that didn’t…or that it is easier, but that is just what I’ve seen.

  26. I did this method for my 2.5 year old boy. It was not good for us. He is very sensitive and he wasn’t ready yet, but he sensed how important we were making it (with all the celebrations, etc. after success) and he felt a LOt of pressure. He had a very difficult time emotionally with potty training because of it, and I wish that I had been more sensitive to him and followed his lead more – instead of going with the recommendations of others regarding his readiness. So my advice is to just trust yourself! (I have a feeling you’re pretty good about that anyway…)

  27. Anna Wasienko Hoover via FB says:

    Do you think he is ready? I have three boys (the third is a baby so he doesn’t count yet) that were potty trained before two, my first son I started at 22 months and it took about a month till I felt totally confident in him to go on his own without reminding (he was dry at night by 2.5 yrs). My second boy started at 18 months, but I wasn’t ready, so I didn’t let him go diaper-less until 20 months …. he hasn’t had any problems during the day and naps but still wears a diaper at night (he will be 3 in July). If you see he is ready, then go for it. Its so much easier when they are ready instead of pushing it on them.

  28. We started my son at 22 months (the 3 day PT recommendation), and it was a little early for him. We was doing really well, but I got really sick for 3 weeks at that time and he got a stomach virus. Completely derailed us! With my 2nd son (he’s 18 months old now), I’m going to wait until after Christmas, and he’ll be about 26 months old. I’m due with baby #3 in September, so I’d like to wait a few months after that for obvious reasons.

  29. Oh, and he just turned 3 and is completely potty trained. No diapers, even at night. But, we still struggle with going #2.

  30. Holly Massie via FB says:

    I would say 3.5 …. I tried earlier with my older boy and it was a fight with younger I waited til he was 3 and then til summer so he could gun around half naked so he was closer to 3.5 and it was a snap

  31. Shannon Brown via FB says:

    i started with axel at 21 months and it went really well! he couldn’t talk at all yet and it was still successful! :)

  32. Annemarie Orrick Laquidara via FB says:

    First off, I have to say I originally stumbled upon your site a few years back when I was googling the three day method…. Worked well for my son back then, who was just over 3, but I waited with him because I had a baby at home. Training my second child was at about 2.5 and all went well. Good luck!

  33. Mellanie Gray Sheppard via FB says:

    It worked well for Ryan at about 27 months. He was ready and caught on quickly. I tried it with my daughter at about the same age and she wasn’t ready. Did it again a few months later and it went very well.

  34. Heather Stephens via FB says:

    My son was closer to 3 and a little beyond to really perfect it. Both of my sister’s boys were about the same age. Always a tricky thing, but looking back it never seems that bad. Good luck when the time comes!

  35. Tanya Farnell via FB says:

    I actually did Ec’ing with my son for most of his first year, then noticed signs of readiness around 18 mos.. I grabbed a potty, and he took it from there.. didn’t follow and methods.. nothing.. he was “trained” before his second birthday.

  36. Trish Harper McAtee via FB says:

    Kudos to all you that did it before 3! My philosophy is one that carries to food, “Do it as natural as possible!” For us, I waited until THEY told me they were ready, then there was no training, and MAYBE 2 accidents. NO STRESS, easy as pie! My boys were both about 3 months over 3. I really do not think they are naturally ready before 3 without being pushed into it, which is fine if it works for you. So, please do not take that as an insult to anyone here! :):):)

  37. Kirsti Vossler via FB says:

    I have not PT’d my boy yet, but my mom had my brother out of diapers by 2 yo. He got a little matchbox car if he went “tinkle” in the toilet, and a matchbox truck if he went “potty”. He really liked the rewards, so apparently it went pretty easy. I’m planning on trying with my son later this summer when he’s about 20 months and can talk a little better than he can now. I used the Potty Boot Camp method with my dd, and it went really well for us. (Kind of similar to the three day.)

  38. Deven Draughon Vasko via FB says:

    My ped said there is actually something in the spinal cord that turns on around 24 months that gives you that “signal” that you’ve got to go. So, I say relax. It will come when they are ready. If you push too soon, you are the one that’s trained not them.

  39. Kristin Fisher Lawler via FB says:

    My son potty trained in a day at exactly age 3. At the time, I was a school teacher and his birthday is at the end of May, so I tried the summer after he turned 2, but he resisted 100%. We literally tried the day after he turned 3, and in one day, we were done. Something that helped though was the fact that he had been dry over night beginning at 18 months. :) In hind sight, I think waiting a bit enabled him to be ready 100%.

  40. Alicia Vaca via FB says:

    My boys were both potty trained by 18 months. One of them even through the night! The other is almost 3 and still needs a diaper to sleep at night. They couldnt tell me completely by then but I would put them on about every hour.

  41. 21 months with our boy. It was super easy. We love the book “Diaper Free before 3″

  42. Supriya Fernandes via FB says:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/steve-hodges-md/potty-training_b_1424826.html…don’t. I fretted a lot that my older sone would never be potty trained. One day – 3 years 6 months he went out of diapers in a day- full day and night no accidents. Easy stress free – no training required.

  43. My 3 boys were all trained by 18-24 months! It helps when there are older children for them to learn from as well. My girls helped train their 1st brother!

  44. Karma Spirit via FB says:

    My eldest boy learned at 20 months, and we will try around that time with my youngest son as well. We cloth diapered up until then, and encouraged him to watch/try when he showed interested. We taught him baby signs so he could sign us “potty”, one day we just switched to big boy underwear. With a little diligence on my part, we had it down in a couple of days :) Good luck!

  45. Michelle Boss Denny via FB says:

    We just did the 3 day with our son whose 2.5 this weekend! He has an older sister too (she’s 4 and potty trained with the 3 day at 29 months). He did great! In some ways he was faster than our daugther! And we didn’t do any rewards with him either (just encouragement). We’re still working on nightime but he’s doing great on daytime!

  46. Tabitha Davidson via FB says:

    We did the 3 Day at a few months after 2.5. We would have done it earlier, but at 2.5 we moved and had a baby, so there were already enough changes in his life!

  47. Joanna Moore via FB says:

    it was so long and drawn out with my first that i decided i wouldn’t rush it at all with my second. i’d rather change diapers than clean up peepee floors. you can’t make them use the potty if they don’t want to, that’s my philosophy. i would wait till he seems interested then just start taking him to the potty regularly, then when you feel comfortable, switch to underwear!

  48. Amanda McCandliss via FB says:

    I was thinking 2.5 and it worked out to about 3.5. LOL He had no interest. Not until I signed him up for an art class with 4 year olds and they all were able to use the restroom independently. Funny how a child sees things- his favorite part of the whole experience was going to use the potty and using the step stool to wash his hands- without mama. :)

  49. Sarah Van Ness Pinero via FB says:

    There isn’t a specific age although my boys were closer to 3 1/2 but you’ll know when they are ready because it will be super easy! If he keeps having accidents he is not ready..no need for any frustration, to me it’s like everything else, when the timing is right it’s takes very little effort!

  50. They pretty much did it themselves by age 3 1/2. No fighting or accidents. They were just ready to be like ‘dad’.

  51. Carie Connell via FB says:

    I have 6 girlfriends and I all had sons in the same year…we all used 3daypottytraining.com which says best and only time is 22-28months period…all our boys done in 3 days not accidents no looking back…totally works!!!

  52. Kari Hyatt Wagers via FB says:

    Oh, There is so much to say about potty training little boys!! He was potty trained in 2 days at age 2yr+2months. I did a comando style w/ him. Gave him ginger tea (diuretic) and he “got” to take his toilet w/ him to every room. He also “got” to clean up every mess. He went potty 12 times in the first hour. That is a lot of cleaning w/ soap and vinegar and paper towels. He was ready to figure this out real fast. We had a fun day and a got it done w/o silly stickers and rewards. He realized that he didn’t want to clean up all of the time and going potty that often didn’t allow for time to forget. A lot of times children don’t mind it because there is too much time between. We had snacks and games and all sorts to do that had to be interrupted while we were cleaning up. I told him how good he was doing at cleaning up. (He got really good that day ~ for a two year old. You obviously are there w/ your hands w/ theirs helping and stuff. But every stroke had his hands in it. I didn’t pretend he was helping. But we don’t roll that way. If he is a help we express that if not why lie… That’s another soap box for another day. Hope you have fun on your adventure!!

  53. Sarah Trease via FB says:

    So grateful we ECd. Dry all night @ 9 months, in trainers at 14 months totally trained at 20 months (no accidents). Watching her is what got her 2 yr old cousin to finally use a potty. Surrounding them with other kids using a potty is really helpful I think.

  54. I think it varies between each child. I don’t think it’s age but when they are ready. My little guy all of a sudden wanted to go pee on the potty one day…and I went with it (even though I wasn’t ready!!)…and I’m glad I did.
