How many have tried this and actually had success? At what age?
DS1 is 22mths and I'd like to start him now. Ideally I'd love him to be at least day TT before our OS holiday in Sept (he'll be 2).
He knows what wee's and poos are, always watches me and hands me paper to wipe myself! He goes off in to the corner when doing a poo, so is aware it's happening. Is this enough?
Also with boys - do I start teaching him sitting down first since he's so young? Or straight to standing on a stool?

i haven't done 3 day method, more of a gradual change. my understanding is teach boys to sit down first so that what i m doing.
talk about wees and poos when you can see him doing it or when you change him. "no poos, just wees!" etc. if you don't do it already, tip the poos in the toilet, and show him when you do it. "bye bye poos" and flush.
you can encourage him to sit on the potty (in pants) while he poos now.
then next step try to catch him just before and get him to sit on with no pants. or do no nickers and remind him go to potty for poos.
My DD did most of herself, but i think the talking about it naturally helped her to be ready. Hopefully, my DS will be as easy!

i dont know of this 3 day method, but id never rush a toddler to TT.
I think the trick is to get them at THEIR right age. It's different for evey child. Some are trained in a matter of days at 18mths, others take months on end regardless of age...
and all of it is totally normal, i suppose.
I realise this is an old post, sorry, i was just browsing the section for information.
My 2.5r old mastered the potty in 3 days, but wont do poo lol
We started out wearing no undies, to undies, to skirt and undies, to pants and undies. on the 3rd day we ventured out and had no accidents thank god. She just wont poo!
