Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Library Journal, starred review
“To use two bad puns, just when you think the market for potty-training books is saturated, along comes a new one that is worth the price tag, even though it’s a little dry. Writing specifically about boys, pediatrician Fertleman (Whittington Hosp., UK) and health editor Cave present a concise plan in fewer than 120 pages, which ambitious moms can read during baby’s nap. It is simple and factual and does an excellent job of addressing common counter-arguments. Guides for determining if your son is ready and tips for preparation until he is (e.g., let him see himself peeing in the bath) are excellent. Overeager parents would do well to read about the role of the hormone vasopressin in bedwetting.”

    This was the only potty training method that worked for my son -

    This was the only potty training method that worked for my son - it really gets into the heads of little boys. The method was simple, fitted with my life (I'm a working mom and didn't want to have to take a week off work just to potty train! who would???). Can't recommend it highly enough.
