Common Questions About Toilet Training


Hi. I've read and reread Rosemond's books on toilet training. Here are my questions after having read those in relation to daytraining my 21-month-old:

1) I use bell and gate which work, but he won't sit on potty. Since I'm to leave him to it for at least five minutes by which time he pees on floor, how can he learn to sit, and especially connect peeing while sitting?

2) My 21-month old drinks 8oz each at 7:30am, 11am, and 3pm. He tends to drink it all at once. Then he pees every 15-30 mins for the next two hours. Suggestions?

3) Do I wait until daytime consistent dryness to not use diaper at night for my 21-mth-old ? OR is Dr. Rosemond saying to just expect bedwetting/crapping at night from beginning of day training for up to 6 months after. Should I wait to go without a night diaper until he's at least 2 yrs old or 2.5 yrs?

Thank you.
