Publisher's Summary

Let Jamie Glowacki show you how potty training is done. Her six-step, proven process to get your toddler out of diapers and onto the toilet has already worked for 10s of thousands of kids and their parents.

Here's the good news: your child is probably ready to be potty trained earlier than you think (ideally, between 20 - 30 months), and it can be done faster than you expect. If you've ever said to yourself:

  • How do I know if my kid is ready?
  • Why won't my child poop in the potty?
  • How do I avoid "potty power struggles"?
  • How can I get their daycare provider on board?
  • My kid was doing so well - why is he regressing?
  • And what about nighttime?!

Oh Crap! Potty Training can solve all of these (and other) common issues. This isn't theory, you're not bribing with candy, and there are no gimmicks. This is real-world, from-the-trenches potty training information - all the questions and all the answers you need to do it once and be done with diapers for good.

Very snarky and anti-parent

This book was hard to listen to. It's one of the only books I wish I would have gotten in print so I could skim over the condescending parts. One whole chapter seemed to say (and I'm paraphrasing here) 'if you don't succeed with my methods it's not my fault. It's you, and you need to take a hard look at your parenting skills.' It was hard to listen to when you're just trying to do the best for your kid and she seemed to already condemn you to failure.

That being said 98% of people on line seem to have great success with this method. We were the 2%. Despite being in the correct 'head space' (as she calls it) we had problems that weren't even mentioned until the end of the book. When the issues were mentioned she said that we were probably making the problems up as only .1% of the kids she works with have said problems. We tried and tried for multiple, naked, miserable days and couldn't get past them. When I went online looking for help any of her forums had a $40 fee per week just to look, let alone post.

We finally decided that our kid is either in this small minority of kids (whom she labels as 'hopeless' with her method) or we were doing something wrong despite our best efforts. We're not sure as we couldn't find anywhere to ask.

Do yourself a favor and buy this book!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely because it helped us potty train our son

What was one of the most memorable moments of Oh Crap! Potty Training?

The internal FU

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Oh Crap! Potty Training?

Don't shortchange little boys

Any additional comments?

My wife and I have been trying to potty train our three year old for the last year and a half. We've been off and on trying to find the right time for him and his particular needs. As you may have guessed, we have completely failed at training this kid up until this point.

Then, after a little research on which book to buy, I decided to get this guide to potty training hoping we could finally figure this shit out (pun intended). It's been about three weeks since I started reading the book, I'm still a little less than half way through it, and my son is already potty trained and doing amazing!! I can't believe how much this book helped me (cause the problems were definitely coming more from me than my son) and how quickly we were able to see success. He still has little accident every now and then but we are seeing steady progression and I'm so proud of my little man.

I can't recommend this book highly enough. If you are struggling with toilet training your toddler or if you're the type of person that benefits from a specific strategy to get things done then do yourself a favor and get this book!

Great Content! Wished for Table of Contents

I thought this book had great value and wished I'd read it a year or two earlier. Great insights and points to be made. I loved the fact that this was written to be direct for people to flip to what they need, and in a natural order.

Audio, however, wasn't so conducive to that. I think this is a book I'd prefer a book of, for a change. I just listened to the whole thing straight through and I know it'll be hard to refer to if I want to look back and review something later, vs. a book

drawn out but good

this is a good how to on potty training for parents who are nervous about finding a place to start. my little one was trained in less than a week with the advice and I didnt even finish the book. There is a bunch of filler and honestly made the book drawn out to the point where I gave up halfway in and took the few bits of advice I did get out of it and used it. Yes this was a big help, but be prepared to listen to hours of rambling and repetition.

I wish I would have had this book with my first.

Would you consider the audio edition of Oh Crap! Potty Training to be better than the print version?

It was great being able to listen to it while doing the many other things I needed to get done. So for that reason alone, yes, it's better than the print version.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Oh Crap! Potty Training?

The perfect time to potty train is earlier than your mom-friends will think. Jamie says somewhere between 18-22 months is perfect and I wish I would have followed my instinct with my first child when he was that age.

What about Meredith Mitchell’s performance did you like?

Her voice is great for the content. I could almost hear her smiling.

What did you learn from Oh Crap! Potty Training that you would use in your daily life?

I learned to potty train my 18mon old. Everyone thought I was crazy. I followed Jamie's structured approach, and it worked! I don't need to change diapers in my daily life anymore. Win!

Any additional comments?

I originally got this book to help my 3-year-old from having "accidents" daily. The book helped us work through that AND it helped me to potty train my 18-mon old in about a week. I couldn't believe it. Her method actually works. This is the only potty training book you need.

Mission accomplished!

Every child may be unique, and if you see the consistent patterns in all these unique creatures as Jamie has you'll be well equipped for potty warfare. I've read a lot on tips and methods, but the solid info she provides is huge! Couple this info with her structured plan and you will not lose!
My daughter was 25 months with a potty chair for 12 months in the bathrooms that she surprisingly would use often at 14 months old. Yeah, that stopped and it was a fight ever since. With another on the way it was time to get serious. I took five days off work, and by day four she was accident free during the day, and even at night provided I woke her up twice. She is so proud! I am so proud! It is truly a joy to witness and bond with her through it all!
Thank you!

Who's your target audience? No fathers

If you could sum up Oh Crap! Potty Training in three words, what would they be?

jumpy, useful, and unfunny.

Any additional comments?

After listening to this book, as a father, I feel rather offended by her use of verbage. I was perfectly fine with the advice given in this book right up until she started dissing on fathers. In one particular chapter, she goes off on fathers being mostly absent from the potty training process. From her point of view, the mother is still a stay-at-home parent and the father is the bread winner. I don't know any families in this day and age that have a stay-at-home parent. Had she left those comments out and slightly reworded the book in select spots, I wouldn't take any issue.

Lots of insight

This book got us through the first week of potty training with ease, a plan and less stress than we expected.
Really enjoyed it.
