    Today's episode included the following topics:

    *Parents decided on a night time reset after a very dramatic attempt at night training. Their daughter still does great during the day with pee and poop but has started to poop in night time diaper. What to do?

    *Out of the blue accidents both at home and daycare for 28 month old little girl. Last time this happened, it coincided with strep and a yeast infection, though she seems to be well now. She will say she has to go potty but then won't go, only to have an accident.

    *3 yo boy is waiting too long to go poop and almost always ends up having poop in his pants, though he finishes on the potty. He's having a rebellious stage in general with a new baby.

    *22 month old boy did great in Block 1. As they progressed into Block 2, he has some pees in his pants. Suddenly, he's anti-all-things-potty. Is this a good situation for a reset?

    *26 moth boy is doing great during the day but is NOT getting night training after many months. Is it okay to do a night time reset?

    *Mom is starting a "poop camp"...she will be gently available for her daughter as her daughter works through the poop-dance-but-won't-release phase. Mom has questions how to best help during this transition.

    *Parents have worked out a lot of kinks with the process and their daughter.  But she's still only pooping about every 4 days. Any additional advice?

    *Child who loves peeing so much that's all he wants to do. Little pees and a big production to empty the pot, wash, etc. Mom has a new baby and can't deal with all the hoopla around pee, especially how often it is. Child has a 13 month communication delay and usually verbal tactics don't work.

    Today's episode included the following topics:

    *28 month old, 3 days into nap/night training. Extremely disgruntled when woken up. While the parents are getting successful pees in the potty at night, there are still accidents as well.  Also: are disposable mattress covers a cheat? 

    *Mama began potty training while recovered from back surgery and had to abandon it due to lifting and bending. Child is 21 months and now very aware of peeing and pooping. Mom plans on starting again in a few weeks but she should follow the reset as in the book?

    *Child is 23 months and at first was able to hold her pee for 1.5-2 hours. Out of the blue, she is suddenly peeing every 15 minutes. She also seems to be pooping about once every 4th day, although it's too soon to see a discernable pattern. Are the 2 linked? (spoiler alert...Yes)

    *Child is a little over 2 years old and they are on day 9. He has one complete pee in the potty a day and then the rest is hit or miss. He can hold it up to 3 hours, will insist he doesn't have to go and then will have an accident. Parents don't want to give up but is it time for a reset?

    *Daughter is fully pee trained and while on vacation, was a perfect pooper. Now, back at home and daycare she has started pooping in her pants. She fully understands the process so mom is at a loss as to what to do next.

    Today's episode included the following topics:

    *Night training: Child wakes himself to pee but it's often and Mama is 37 weeks pregnant and TIRED. 

    *Another night training question: child is still in crib and has a very strong reaction when anyone even enters her room at night. Parents are NOT ABLE, at all, to wake the child. However, she has been staying dry at night almost all time. Is it best to start going without a diaper? Or should the parents wait until child is in a bed?

    *Child is doing great with potty training but still freaks out when releasing poop. When/how can this be resolved?  Should they move onto to undies?

    *Mom of twins who need to be potty trained for preschool. Boy twin regularly poops in his pants and girl twin refuses to sit on the potty. Help! Mom has tried EVERYTHING.

    *Little girl is doing great. She's still in block 2 and has no accidents at home. Daycare insists on a pull-up and she consistently pees in the pull-up.

    *28 month old boy who is going to TOWN with fruits, creating messy diapers. Mom is gearing up to start potty training and wondering if she should wait till poops are back to normal.

    *Mom is strung out on night training. No discernable patterns of pee and no discernable progress.

    Today's episode included the following topics:

    *Child is making some good progress, even after some bumps in the road. He has pooped in the potty a few times but suddenly won't. He does an extensive "poop dance", mom prompts him but he'll sit for a minute, pop up, and then poop on the floor. Is this normal in the process? Does he need more time to "get it"?

    *Child is having severe constipation issues. She's had a enema at the children's hospital and prescribed laxatives. She doesn't want to poop in the potty and she doesn't want to poop in a diaper. Pooping itself causes a lot of drama. This child has what I call "butt trauma."

    *Family on day 3 with a 20 month old boy. Mom is definitely seeing progress but not a ton. Biggest problem is child won't sit to pee for any length of time.

    *Techical question: how to download OCPT to the iPad.

    *Child is doing great with pee. But with poop, she almost seems to get no warning. She will tell parents immediately after she poops but every poop seems to catch her by surprise

    *Night Training: why we do it. Why you shouldn't just leave your child to wet the bed. Why you shouldn't use undies/trainers with rubber pants. And other random questions about night training.

    *How to talk to your friends about potty training. (spoiler alert: you really don't)

    Today's episode included the following topics:

    *Child is on day 3 and is doing great and even self initiating. However, she's peeing a little bit very frequently. How can that be fixed?

    *Night training question: 3 year old STILL is not making any progress. Mom is waking 3 times a night and is DONE. Of note: she has a younger child who is showing night time progress.  So clearly, it's the child and not what mom is or isn't doing.

    *Child was about 70% there for potty training and then moved backwards. Lots of accidents and he won't tell anyone when he has to go. There's the added fact that he needs to be trained for preschool in September.

    *Another night training question: Never ANY consistency. All catches seem to be random as do the accidents. Mom wonders if the wakings are actually making it worse.

    *Child is doing pretty great with potty training but seems to have an intense fear around the moment of release.

    *Parents have chosen a reset due to poop withholding. Child has a history of extreme holding/constipation. How to set up success for the go-around.

    *Child having a few accidents a week, mostly due to being very afraid/unwilling to use public restrooms

    Today's episode included the following topics:

    *Child is 30 months, starting again after a reset. He's doing great so far but confuses the word pee and poop. Should the parents try to fix this? He poops in night time diapers...Mom is unsure what to do. Suggestions for keeping the success going.

    *How to deal with behavior issues while potty training. To be clear: NOT potty behavior issues. Parents utilize time outs, but they result in accidents. Mom is unsure if this is revenge or just high emotions.

    *Nap/night training: Mom is unclear. 1. If you want to do both, should you start both day and night training on the same exact day? and 2. Should child be completely naked? Or commando? Or undies?

    *Dad calling in: Child needs to go to the toilet up to 15 times before she releases pee. They are on day 4...how can he help her release in a more effecient manner?

    *A list of parent recommended books related to pottying to use while child is on the toilet.

    *Child is 22 months, day 1, block 1.  Did okay in the morning and in the afternoon hit major resistance.

    Today's episode included the following topics:

    *What does nighttime success look like? Is it the child staying dry throughout the night? Or the child being able to wake themselves to go in the middle of the night?

    *Child is doing pretty great at night training but always has an accident very early in the morning, close to wake up time. Mom thinks she is still asleep. Child is also having accidents, only at home with mom. All other situations are great. Mom thinks she forgets about having to pee at home.

    *Boy/girl twins, almost 3 yo; girl is doing great however, the little boy is a major dribbler...enough to have to change clothes each time.

    *25 month girl who does wonderful outside of the house. While home, she isn't bothered at all by accidents.

    *2.5 yo boy who did fantastic at first. Mom went right to block 2 but now child is having accidents and isn't bothered at all by them.

    *26 month old girl previously had big fear of release. She is now over that and will pee once she starts "dancing". The problem she will NOT go when prompted. Mom wants to start night training but can't wrap her head around how her daughter will take to the night time waking/prompts.

    *Trouble with transitioning to clothes.

    *Homeschool question: how to balance homeschool and a business?
