Would You Hire Somebody To Potty Train Your Tot In Just Two Days?

A potty training company claim that can teach little ones to use the toilet in just a couple of days. But it will come at a cost…

There’s no escaping the fact that potty training takes time, patience and a lot of wet wipes.

But would you really pay someone $1,750 (just over £1,000) to do it for you? That’s how much a US professional potty-training service is charging its customers.

NYC Potty Training provide experts who claim to be able to teach children how to use the loo in just two days

The company, NYC Potty Training, provide experts who claim to be able to teach children how to use the loo in just two days. And NYC Potty Training is not alone in it’s field – it’s just one of the many services available in the US.

While it may seem like a hefty sum to pay, some parents are willing to splash out on the service if it gets the job done. One mum, Molly Goldberg, told ABC News that she was ‘frustrated’ and had ‘little patience’ for her three-year-old son’s unwillingness to use the toilet. She hired NYC Potty Training founder Samantha Allen to work with her tot and claimed it’s well worth the price tag.

But before you book a slot, we reckon you should try out some of our (free) expert potty training tips.
