How long does it take to train my child?

This is a good question.  I read the book everyday and tried to document when he was most likely to soil his nappy, so read close to those times.  I kept copies next to the potty and change table.  I also recited words in the books for toilet time or hand washing times so when we read again, it was familiar.

My son was doing a wee to the toilet within 10 days and a poo by 2 weeks.  He also stopped wearing nappies to bed after 4 weeks.

My second son took about double that time as I was in a two storey house with him, so had to rely more on the potty downstairs than the toilet, to get out of nappies.
