This is how you will wean your child from diapers within 3 days. Can't believe it really works!
From the moment of birth, our children wear diapers so that they and we can deal with their 'mess' better. It works for a while, but in the end every parent has to deal with the child's weaning. And as any parent would tell you, there will be accidents. The frequency varies from child to child, but you may think you are different if your sweet child has difficulty getting used to the new reality. This is completely natural.
In the end the results are worth the challenge you face, but why should weaning be so difficult in the first place? After so many years of teaching our kids how to do it, you would think there was an easier way to do it. According to Laura Jensen, the solution to easy weaning is already here. And the best part - it only takes three days to do it! It may sound too good to be true, but according to her new book "3 Day Potty Training", it doesn't have to be that hard. Get ready: The three days of the program are extremely intense.
"Parents need to know that they will have a hard job, and that they will have to devote all three days to their child. That means giving up time for themselves. You will not cook, clean or visit friends - or watch your favorite shows on TV. You will spend all your free time with the child, then you should go shopping and prepare food in advance. Do laundry and clean the house ahead of time. Be prepared to play games, draw and spend time with your child", Laura says.
It may sound like serious madness, but who can argue when the alternative can take weeks or months of frustration? This is how you will start your child's way of weaning from diapers.
When your child wakes up on the first day of the program, change his diaper and ask him to throw it in the trash. Ask him to say 'bye bye' while he closes the bin.
Make sure your child only wears a long shirt that reaches to his knees. The important part is to explain that there is no diaper that catches or holds his poop or pee, so they should use the pot if they need to defecate. There is no safety net.
Give your child a breakfast with plenty of drink. Once they finish eating, take them to the pot.
They should be able to pee because of the extra fluids they drank.
Make sure you always have a bottle or glass of water with you. Make sure the child drinks regularly, and take him to the bathroom every 15 minutes. Yes, every 15 minutes throughout the day!
After he finished eating dinner, don't let him eat or drink any more.
Make sure he goes to the pot just before he goes to bed.
Wake the child up in the middle of the night to go to the potty. Yes, that means you're on duty around the clock.
Repeat the whole process for the next two days again.
If the child doesn't want to go to the pot after drinking, try to convince him. When the child defecates in the pot, reward him with a toy, sticker or small snack. It is at your discretion.
When your child is sitting, make sure he is sitting on a bath mat. Most carpets have a rubber bottom so that the liquid will not penetrate it. Accidents will happen, and this will create a barrier between the toss and the carpet or floor.
If the child misses and pees or poops on the carpet, don't get angry, and do not make a fuss about it. Clean up and move on.
This is definitely a method worth trying. Although for three days you will not have a life. But it will save you a very big headache afterwards.
