Show me the proof
We think that the best way to "show you the proof" is to show you what other parents who have used this method have to say.
The first parent testimonial is from a doctor who is also a mom!!
Potty Patty rocks!
While we started with videos and books (Alona Frankels series, which is very nice) to get the mood going, I purchased one of the "aqua dolls"
where basically the water goes straight through. Dont waste your money! Its not convincing to a skeptical two year old.
So, I ordered Potty Patty, STUDIED the guide, and in 2 intense weekends following the guide to the letter, wouldnt you know it? It worked! (I am a working mom 62 miles away from my home!), my daughter "got it" all in one fell swoop. Pee, poo, day and night. I realize I was very lucky. I recall in mid-July 2006, Bernadette was in pull-ups to visit her Nana at Jamestown, VA. Her "I did it" Dora the Explorer official "Big Girl" potty training certificate is dated August 6, 2006. I can count on one hand the number of accidents she has had since then.
My advice? Do it in the summer. Do it now. The freedom of being "sans diapers" is, in this moms opinion, the best thing since giving birth! Plus you save $20. (at least) a week. Prepare to be silly and enjoy the process.
Also be prepared for your child wanting to "show off" his or her new skill. I recall her needing to check out potties around town for awhile as the novelty had not yet wore off! Im never embarrassed only proud when I hear "Mommy, I need to go potty." I proudly take my daughters hand and I feel the envy of the other preschool parents with kids still in diapers. BTW, my daughter is quite petite and had no problems. Shes only 28-30 lbs. at 3 years, 5 months. She was trained using Potty Patty at 2 years, 7 months.

The second testimonial is from parents where the Mom was skeptical it would work but was desperate.
Thank you for your program!
Your program is just WONDERFUL! Before we purchased it, our three year old son would have nothing to do with the potty. If we put him on it he would literally scream. I was skeptical to say the least that your program would train him in one day.
The "big day" was a frustrating one. It seemed that it wasnt going to work. Then by days end he was going on the potty and no more diapers ever since.
Weve had a few accidents since the big day, but they get less frequent with each day and somedays he doesnt have any! I cant tell you how pleased we were with your program. I have recommended you to every parent that I know!
Thanks so much!
