If the subject of poop bothers you, you won't get far in this book (or this review), because it's on virtually every page. The author is a pediatric urologist with a good sense of humor. He addresses the scores of children who have accidents, both daytime and nighttime, after having been potty trained--as well as other toileting-related problems such as UTI's and over-active bladders. The bottom line is this: a frightening number of children are severely constipated, and their parents don't If the subject of poop bothers you, you won't get far in this book (or this review), because it's on virtually every page. The author is a pediatric urologist with a good sense of humor. He addresses the scores of children who have accidents, both daytime and nighttime, after having been potty trained--as well as other toileting-related problems such as UTI's and over-active bladders. The bottom line is this: a frightening number of children are severely constipated, and their parents don't realize it, or if they do they don't know how to fully treat it. Often the child's doctor fails to realize it as well, or doesn't treat the constipation effectively enough to resolve the problem. A dose here and there of Miralax might help some the author says, but many need much more than that. Dr. Hodges recommendation, that he gives detailed yet easy-to-understand explanation for in the book, is to have the child x-rayed in order to fully understand just how constipated they are. He also emphasizes the benefits of enemas (and repeatedly addresses people who immediately shut down at the thought of them), good nutrition and exercise, and a prolonged approach to keeping kids' digestive systems functioning properly. Honestly, this book is a worthwhile read for every parent, whether you're already dealing with toileting problems or if you have yet to potty train you child. ...more

After years of being told my child is "just susceptible" to UTIs and getting to the point where the bacteria was resistant to nearly every antibiotic tried, I find it a total blessing to have found this book.

I found myself nodding my head all the way through the book as it is the first time a doctor has explained perfectly all of the issues experienced by my daughter and gave the reasons behind it. When I talked to her about trying this approach, her first response was "you mean there are other kids like me?" It broke my heart. Up to this point, all we could do to prevent infections was to push fluids and maintain a consistent bathroom schedule - but inevitably if one or the other isn't consistent, the result is a UTI. Most doctors, even the "specialists," have played down this issue so it's great that one pediatric urologist out there is providing good information and solutions. Bring on the miralax... ...more

Amazing! Our son is almost 4 and we have had potty training issues for over a year. The root cause was we pushed him too early, then I made him feel bad about poop... Maybe? Either way, he has been super constipated. Which we have known for some time. But reading the book made my husband understand that munchkins and hard salami are not staple foods in a toddlers diet.

And only pooped once every five days. Now he goes 2-3 times a day!! Next step, big boy undies...
This is a must read for any parent who has a child with toilet issues! ...more

Seriously, if anyone is having ANY bathroom problems with their kid, start here! I have skimmed through lots of potty training books that have very little helpful information.

This addresses a host of problems with a main cause, but he explains why they are related issues and why most pediatricians don't have this information (most kids outgrow it, so research goes where the money is). This has a great balance of medical data, personal stories, practical solutions (what to do & how), and Seriously, if anyone is having ANY bathroom problems with their kid, start here!

My oldest daughter has had chronic problems with constipation since...well..since she started solid food, and so I have had to learn a lot about how we manage this problem from behavioral and medical standpoints.

It is a good read if you don't think your doctor is handling your situation as aggressively as you might want. I learned a lot and am glad I read the book.

My only point of criticism is that enema therapy is not for everyone, and that there are alternatives before we get to that point. That is a decision best left between a patient, parent, and doctor, so I took those sections with a grain of salt.

The nutrition section is worth the price of the book, to remind us that eating a healthier, higher fiber diet is well within our powers. ...more

Three day method, oh crap potty training, weekend method etc are super popular now. I’m in multiple mom and potty training groups online and I see posts every single day about potty trained children regressing and it makes me think this book is spot on. I’m really glad I found this book before I tried to potty train my son again. Every toddler parent should read this book BEFORE potty training.

This book has provided guidance and a clear explanation on why my son is having so much trouble with wetting. We have been following the regimen for a couple of months and are so pleased to see progress.

This book really made me reconsider a lot of what I thought I knew about potty training, constipation, and accidents. Who knew I’d one day be fascinated to learn about American children’s chronically clogged colons and the health problems associated with it?

My child still has nighttime bedwetting issues, and this book gave me a clear idea why this may be. I never thought constipation may be the root cause for this. I will try out the suggestions made in this book and report back! Every parent needs to read this.

Informative

I found this book very informative on a subject no one wants to talk about yet could be helpful to all parents of small children.

Well written and highly informed book. This will help in my work, and I can't wait to implement these ideas with my clients.

This was a helpful book and less of a slog to read than one might guess from the title. It still remains to be seen how much of a breakthrough the solutions are for us, but overall I think the ideas in the book are convincing.

Evie's not potty training yet, but I wanted to read this doctor's tips for constipation, which has been an issue since we transitioned to formula. So, almost 18 months now. I decided to read the entire book since it was so interesting and even entertaining.

The topic everyone loves. Poop. It's that subject parents like to pretend doesn't exist (it's gross, let's be honest) and well-meaning friends/relatives say "he/she will grow out of it..." or try to blame it on a behavioral issue (please just stop already). Well what if they don't grow out of it? What if it's something else? What if your kid isn't really just having accidents to get on your nerves, but actually has a physical problem causing it?

Covers fiber, diet, meds, enemas, and other ways to combat bedwetting, utis and constipation (apparently the root cause of lots of interesting things). A good read for any parent with a child struggling with elimination issues. ...more

wish I had this book 3 years ago. Feel so bad for my 5 year old and her day time wetting and it wears me down too. Feel we have tried every method and researched endless on the Internet with nothing working. Kind of not excited about bringing her to the potty every 2 hours again, but after 2 weeks of that and adding MirLAX she has only been having 1 accident a day and bedwetting is hit or miss but I'm just focused on fixing the day time for now.

I'm pretty sure this book deserves six stars! The subject matter is gross, yes, but it was surprisingly fascinating and had a hefty dose of much-needed humor. In all seriousness though, this book is an answer to prayer. If you have a child who suffers from any of the mentioned potty problems, buy this book! If you have children yet to potty train, buy this book! I would buy a copy for every parent I know, if I could!

A must-read for any parent dealing with any kind elimination issues in any child, whether in diapers or potty trained. Hodges offers a Band-Aid solution that may help in most cases. However, we had to explore our issues further and finally found that a food sensitivity was the root of our problem. We visited a homeopath that can desensitize food issues, and my daughter was able to get off the medication and has had no further problems in a year now.

Excellent book written by a urologist who specializes in potty troubles. He explains it in easy to understand terms and helps parents work through day time accidents, bed wetting, urine infections... And explains how they are all likely highly related to constipation. I don't agree with everything he says, like infants and kids before potty training don't get urine infections. Overall, a good book

Tons of great tips for a silent epidemic. Since much of the advice concerns constipation, this is useful for parents dealing with enuresis but also parents dealing with constipation and encopresis. Excellent and wonderful addition to the toolbook of modern parents, even well researched parents will find something useful in this must read.

I'm so glad I picked up this book!! If you have a child with bathroom problems, read this book today!! It has helped SO much. I followed Dr. Hodges suggestions and now, after only a week, it seems my child has solved his bed-wetting problems! Who knew that constipation could be the problem, but it seems it was!!

This book is spot on! Wish I had read it before potty training!!! My daughter has accidents when constipated. Doctor recommended Miralax has solved the problem! Next goal is to follow suggestions for increasing fiber and then work her off of it when she is a little older and understands the importance of going to the bathroom in a regular fashion:)

Great help

Good info that helped. Good ideas that several docs never told us before. Had this problem with two other kids, and removing dairy helped, but this child still is struggling.

Great book about kids poop and pee :). Fascinating to learn that bedwetting is due to constipation. An interesting book and good for the future if things like this happen with the kids. I must say, thank goodness for Miralax.
