My just 3 year old would only poo in a nappy and even then he had very strict criteria for when he would allow it to happen. It consumed us and we were constantly thinking and planning for ‘what if he needs a poo’. Anything out of routine like holidays/dinners out were a nightmare and resulted in holding behaviour. His behaviour (already testing us) deteriorated when he didn’t go for a poo and it was creating angst in the home. We didn’t understand what the issue was or what to do. I had a consult with Danielle and she gave me the understanding and tools I needed. There is no magic wand and it’s hard work at times but Danielle is there to help. We didn’t progress past one of the stages for a while and we were going backwards at one point. One call with Danielle and I was back on track…within 10 days of that call we were done – full success after 6 weeks. I now have a very confident and capable toileting tot. Thanks for the advice and help Danielle

We had tried everything to help train my 4 year old daughter to do a poo on the toilet with no success, nothing would work for us, she would only do a poo in a nappy, if she didn’t have a nappy she would hold on. After over a year of trying and hoping she would one day make the decision herself to do it, I came across Danielles business – Toileting tots, I sent Danielle an email and from there we booked a consult and we have not looked back!

My daughter had said only weeks earlier ‘I am never doing a poo on the toilet EVER’, well 2 weeks after starting Danielles guide, guess what! She did her first poo on the toilet! She now independently takes herself with confidence and she is so happy she is no longer afraid. Danielle helped give us the steps to guide our daughter comfortably which helped her to no longer be frightened. I would 100% recommend Danielle and Toileting Tots, I wish I came across her earlier. My daughter is so happy and proud and so are we.

Thanks so much Danielle!

“ We contacted Danielle after reading some amazing testimonials from other clients and they were right. We were a bit hesitant as we are located in Sydney and we weren’t sure a video phone consult was going to help. 

We had been struggling to toilet train our 4 yr old daughter for over a year, she would only poo in a nappy and when we tried to get her to sit on the toilet she became very distressed and started to hold on to her poos for days which made her constipation worse. 
Danielle put together a personalised plan for our daughter. I wasn’t sure it was going to help as we thought we had tried everything. To my disbelief, my daughter progressed incredibly quickly through Danielle’s plan and only after 2 weeks my daughter happily did her first poo sitting in the toilet, and she has continued to do it since then. It has been a very smooth process and 100% stress free for all of us including our daughter. 
Danielle’s expertise in this area is second to none , it’s as if she knew my daughter and how she was going to react. If we needed to troubleshoot , she would answer straight away. 
We can’t recommend Danielle highly enough , even to those who live interstate. Her knowledge, expertise and professionalism has made our lives easier and my daughter is now happily doing her poos in the toilet without tears. 
We are so grateful with Danielle and so happy we found her ! “

‘We were so impressed with Danielle’s professional and evidence-based approach to toilet training. Recommended by a friend, we engaged her services remotely as we live in Victoria. Despite never meeting in person, the comprehensive pre-consultation questionnaire coupled with phone consults meant we felt she understood the specific challenges we were facing in training our 4.5 year old son (who was trained in wees but refusing to do poos on the toilet).
Her plan for our child was thorough but easy to follow, we began to see results within ten days and our son hasn’t had any setbacks since. Danielle provided clear instructions in her step by step plan and great resources to support us along the way. Something we appreciated was that the plan encouraged our son to become part of the solution. He took complete ownership of the process and was so proud when he achieved goals along the way. It was a very positive experience for all of us!
After feeling like we’d tried everything, we cannot believe the progress we have made in such a short time. Highly recommend Danielle in assisting with any issues you may be experiencing in the toilet training process!’

I had lost all hope of Toilet Training my stubborn 3.5 year old son, and was starting to become stressed about it, (especially as he was due to start Kindy) when a friend recommended Toileting Tots.

Danielle took the time to understand my son and created a plan specifically tailored for us. We started making progress from the first few days, which really surprised me. Each week we progressed further, until my son, whom had never done anything of the sort, was toileting completely independently. It wasn’t easy, but I had Danielle’s support the entire time. I loved that I could call or text when we were having a tough day, and Danielle would reassure me and give me advice. It was also wonderful to share with her our triumphs as we went along. Danielle went above and beyond expectations and always focused on my son’s best interest.

I definitely could not have done this without Danielle, and would highly recommend Toileting Tots to anyone who needs a bit of help/guidance with toilet training. Thank you so much Danielle for everything you have done for us.

We appointed Danielle to assist us with toilet training our 4.5 year old. At the time we contacted Danielle, we had been ‘unsuccessfully’ trying to toilet train our son since he was 2 years old! We had bought every book, read every online article, tried every bribe & to be honest we’re sick & tired of not getting anywhere & spending money on conflicting information to no avail.

Danielle had a concise & informative approach. I have to be honest, I felt like saying to her at the start ‘but you don’t know my son, I don’t know if this is going to work’. Within 48 hours our son was pooing on the toilet. 2 weeks later he is now unassisted on the toilet, pooing in public restrooms & wiping himself – if you’d have told me this 2 weeks ago I would have laughed at you!!

Danielle we can not thank you enough for what you have done for our family. Your prompt support along the way made us confident & informed & we could not have achieved this massive milestone without you!!

I highly recommend the services of Danielle. It is definitely money well invested!!! Thanks again Danielle.

Danielle is simply amazing, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is struggling to assist their child with toileting (like we were!) She listened to us, provided us with a fantastic step-by-step program to follow, with clear instructions to help facilitate the process for our son (based on our situation), and was there to lend a guiding hand throughout. After years of being told what worked for everyone else’s child (except ours!), Danielle provided us with the tools we needed to assist our 4.5 year old…and within 6 weeks he was completely out of nappies and using the toilet like a true toilet master. Danielle truly understands what it takes to assist a stubborn, strong-willed child to achieve toilet mastery, and we could not be more grateful for her guidance and support.

When we first came to Danielle, our daughter, nearly 2, had been holding on to her poos, usually for around a week (sometimes longer), for about 6 months. She also had terrible, bleeding nappy rash, and would scream hysterically at every nappy change. Our entire lives revolved around these problems. We’d visited GPs, paediatricians and child nurses with no success, and her condition was getting worse. Within a few weeks of our first visit, everything started to turn around. Danielle persisted with our GP for an x-ray, which revealed complete blockage of her intestines. She recommended a different nappy cream and laxative, both of which were immediately successful. Now, 9 months on, after much planning, persistence, patience and phone calls, our daughter is toilet-trained, pooing happily and not showing any trace of holding on. We cannot recommend Danielle’s expertise and caring, on-going support highly enough. If you are experiencing any toileting issues with your child, please do yourself a favour and book in to see her immediately.

Toilet training was becoming a major problem for us with our 3 1/2 year old daughter. It was obvious she knew when she needed to go but would not use the toilet or potty and became extremely distressed whenever we tried. I had tried a lot of things so was slightly sceptical when I contacted toileting tots. However, after following the plan for about a week she became comfortable and began to wee and poo! I am so glad I contacted Danielle and very grateful for the help.

We have been working with Danielle over the past 10 weeks to help my 4 year old son deal with toileting anxieties he was having at school. Through her program and ongoing advice and support we have managed to get him off all forms of laxatives and medication and he is now completely independent with his toileting day and night no matter what environment he’s in. I can’t recommend Danielle enough to families and we wish we knew about her sooner!!

As a mother and a Paediatrician, I would highly recommend the services of Danielle for anyone who is having difficulty toilet training their child. After struggling with toilet training our 3.5 year old daughter for 8 months, I finally decided to enlist some help. Danielle was thorough in her assessment of our situation, answered all my questions, and her tailored plan for our daughter was very clear, comprehensive, and easy to follow. I am very proud and amazed that our daughter was successful within a week! She is happily and independently using the toilet at home and even in public. We are very grateful for Danielle’s advice and support, it certainly is money well spent, and I wish I had done it much sooner.

My son Declan aged 4.5 years, had been wee toilet trained for a while and would only poo in a nappy. My husband and I tried everything to convince Declan to use the toilet but nothing helped. This went on for about a year and I found out about Toileting Tots and Danielle. We decided to give it a go and after meeting Danielle, she was very professional and understanding. With her advice and step by step plan, Declan was completely toilet trained after 5 weeks.

We are very grateful to have found Danielle and would highly recommend her to anyone. She was brilliant and we couldn’t have done this without her support. Thank you Danielle!

My Zoe is four and a half years old,  and I suppose I just thought she would start to poo on the toilet like most of the other children her age.   I was wrong and after many ( distressing )  solo attempts,  she would not poo without a nappy.  

After following Danielle’s well tailored toileting program for 6 weeks,  we have finally had success.  It is still only early days,  but the changes that have been made already are enormous,  and I am so grateful.  

I would highly recommend Danielle,  for any toileting issues,  and just wish I had found her earlier !

Thank you for the practical and easy to implement strategies for toileting success. We were easily able to implement the program into our busy daily lives. I can not talk highly enough about the individual tailored program designed for out daughter.

Despite showing all the signs of readiness for some time, our son was happy to do his wees on the toilet, but began only wanting to do his poos in a nappy or would hold them in causing constipation.

This had been going on for approximately 4 months, we had tried so many different approaches with no success and our sons toilet anxieties were increasing.

A friend suggested seeing Danielle after attending one of her talks and it was the best thing we did.   Danielle was amazing and I can highly recommend her and Toileting Tots.   She took the time to understand what was going on for our son and provided a customised plan, as well as strategies to use if things weren’t “going to plan”.   In addition, Danielle was in contact throughout the process which provided both ongoing support and encouragement.

Within 6 weeks, our son was doing his poos on the toilet and more importantly, the step by step approach meant it wasn’t a stressful experience for our son (and us).  Our son even told us when he was ready to stop wearing a nappy of a night! 

It has been 5 months of success now, but being a busy boy, every now and again our son will decide he would rather “hold” his poos rather than take the time to go to the toilet.  However, we can identify the signs and straight away we use the techniques Danielle shared with us and our son is happy to be back on the toilet for his poo.

Thank you so much Danielle, we couldn’t have don’t it without you 🙂

Despite her having very good awareness and control, we found it impossible to convince our 3.5yr old daughter to poo on the toilet rather than in a nappy. This had been going on for about 6 months when I saw a flyer advertising Danielle’s services. I was initially a bit sceptical, and wondered what a toilet training consultant could tell us that we couldn’t find out for ourselves on the internet, but the other testimonials convinced us to give it a go.

Right from the start Danielle was very professional and provided a personalised, step by step plan. The face to face consultation was very helpful, and she had strategies for managing all the “what if” scenarios I thought might arise. Our plan worked like a dream, and our daughter progressed through the steps hardly missing a beat.

We’re very pleased we sought help from Danielle. My Husband even commented recently that he’d “pay the money again in a second”, if we had our time again.
