The hardest child I had to pt is my second son who is now 3 1/2. He is fine during the day, but at night he still has accidents. But with my other kids I've learned that shutting them off of liquids about an hour or so before bedtime (and making them go before they get in bed) has cut down the accidents tremendously.

He also doesn't mind one bit in wearing the pull-ups to bed. So I'm working on encouraging him to not wear them at night.

My son is FINALLY using the toilet...it is kind of funny how it worked though...Normally when a child bounces between two homes the one that they are at least is the one that causes regression...in our case my son went to stay the weekend with his dad, he came home potty trained!! He has had 3 accidents since Tuesday night when he came home but it is going great and it is nice to not have to bend over to change a diaper all day with this huge belly of mine, hopefully he will be totally done by the time baby is here and my daughter will stay dry through the night...Meg

I had an easy time with potty training my little girl. I started her at 15 months and she was completely potty trained (with less than one accident per month) by 18 months. The reason it went by so quickly was because I read this book that completely changed my viewpoint on potty training. It said that back in the old days and even still today in parts of china, kids would be potty trained by the time they were ONE YEAR OLD!! Now, when I read that I was doubtful because all the magazine articles and toddler books say to NOT PUSH IT and WAIT UNTIL THEY SHOW SIGNS OF READINESS. This book said the key is: be consistant. I bought her a toddler potty to start with. Next I formed a routine. I would sit her on the potty first thing in the morning when she woke up, 20 minutes after eating or drinking, everytime I used the restroom, before baths and right before going to bed. I would have her sit for no more than 5 minutes at a time and if she went I told her \"good job\" and if she didn't, I told her \"okay, maybe next time. tell me if you need to go\". I did this EVERY time EVERY day. For the first month or so there were a lot of accidents because we went straight from diapers to panties but after that, she progressed. I reccomend it; it saved a LOT of money on diapers and we didn't have to go through the terrible twos AND potty training at the same time--which can be really tough.
