This dvd is helpful for parents who are first starting out. Reading a book, looking at still photos, and joining online groups is nothing like seeing it in action. There's so much information in the dvd that, if I were inexperienced, I'd probably watch it a gazillion times (along with reading the books and joining the online groups.) What is most helpful is seeing so many different ways of working with so many different ages of babies and toddlers. There's no one right way, there's a different right way for each baby at each stage of their infancy and toddlerhood, and this dvd lets you see quite a number of different styles.
As someone who's almost 14 months into the process, I was encouraged by the scenes of older toddlers. It's so easy to get lost in where you are today that you forget the end result is an independent child. It was also fun to see how our style compares to that of other families. The little boy just waking up from a nap and holding his pee until he was given the cueing sound could have been my son. The woman from Australia made sewing pants for her baby look really easy. Then there's the scene of the young toddler ec'ing her doll. That had to be the cutest scene in the dvd.Read more ›
I think this method is great. I am a new mom from NJ, (5 day old as of July 4th 2007) and caught my daughter's first poop today. I am using disposable diapers like most people, and consider this a "part-time" trial for now - which they teach in the tapes and books.
The way I see "part-time" is, even if you "catch" one poop and save ONE diaper, that's one less to buy, and one less to send to a landfill. If you like this tape, you might also like to buy "Diaper Free Baby."
I really loved Potty Whispering. I've read a lot of books on diaper free babies but seeing a video was a new experience. Potty Whispering was so helpful. It's one thing to see something on the written page, quite another to get a good demonstration on video.
There were many video clips and lots and lots of still-shots. The information is comprehensive and well-organized. A lot of the material in the video is contributed by families with diaper free babies. This means the overall quality of the video is not "studio quality" - however, I don't think it takes away from the video at all. Rather, it gives the video a sense authenticity. It's also encouraging to know that I ca be successful just like the many families on the video.
I give Potty Whispering a high recommendation for being very practical, extensive, and well-organized. It's a great choice for anyone curious about infant potty training, or anyone looking for practical instruction and a wealth of ideas.
