Toilet Training in a Day

Some parents take weeks or even months trying to toilet train their child, but according to Wendy Sweeney, creator of Booty Camp toilet training in a day is possible.

Sweeney created her one-day toilet training method after she toilet trained her first son just before his third birthday. After toilet training a few more of her children (she has six in total) and helping with toilet training in her neighborhood, Sweeney decided she was on to something and founded , Booty Camp in Chicago, Illinois. She recently launched a DVD so parents can try her toilet training in a day technique at home and decided to share some of her secrets with us.

Is your child ready to start toilet training?

Most children, both boys and girls, need to be at least 2.5 years old in order to succeed with the Booty Camp method. “You want to make sure your child’s body is physiologically ready for the training,” says Sweeney. Every child is different, so you need to pay attention to your child’s cues to see if he’s ready. For example:

  • Can your child follow simple commands?
  • Can she keep her diaper dry for a few hours at a time?
  • Take your child’s diaper off and see how long it takes for him to pee on the floor. If your child is ready to toilet train, he will try to hold the pee or poo in.
