Violet Giannone

Hi, I’m Violet! You may know me from my popular baby sleep website Sleep, Baby, Sleep®. I’m also a Registered Nurse, Pediatric Sleep Consultant, Author of Baby Sleep Training in 7 Days, but my favorite title of all is Mom.

My two girls have always kept me busy. From not sleeping when they were born, to the potty training woes, there has never been a dull moment.

I’ve created Sleep, Baby, Sleep and now Ready To Potty to help other parents who are struggling with the same problems.

As you know, every child is different. I know mine sure is and when it came to potty training, she showed me just how different she could be.I had tried everything. I read every article. Every book. I was so stressed out.

“What am I doing wrong?”

I was nearly in tears. And the worst part… My daughter was too! She had this inexplicable fear of going potty. And when I say fear. I mean she was so SCARED. You could see the hair stand straight up on her arms.  She’d break into a cold sweat with chill bumps all over. It broke my heart. Sometimes she’d go a whole day without an accident. Other days she’d scream and cry for her diaper. And just as soon as we thought she had it, we’d end up right back where we started.

Honestly, I wasn’t sure if she was EVER going to be ready. But, we kept at it. And one day, after a lot of trial and error, she did it! Not only did she do it, but she did a #2. Her face lit up. She had a smile from ear to ear and you could just see that she was so proud. She threw her arms around my neck and gave me the biggest squeeze EVER!

I know what you’re thinking… and yes… that was before we had a chance to wipe! I was ecstatic because from that day forward she consistently used the potty.

NO MORE DIAPERS!

Knowing that other mothers were going through this too, and since I already had a community behind me from Sleep, Baby, Sleep, I decided to reach out to see who else was struggling. And just as I expected, the one size fits all plans that you find searching google and internet forums weren’t cutting it for them either. 

Just like Brianna, each child seemed to have their own unique fear, or way of being stubborn and through working with these families the Ready to Potty website and the 3 Day Potty Training Plan was born.

I have continued to add to it over the years and I can proudly say that this worked for Brianna, it works for hundreds of other kids, and it will work for you. I can’t wait to help you with your potty training journey!

 

Erin Elkins

Hi, I’m Erin 

I am a momma of two young boys ages 5 and 3 and I am married to my wonderful husband of six years. Prior to becoming a certified sleep and potty training consultant I was an elementary school teacher and reading specialist. 

After working outside of the home for a year I decided I wanted to permanently work at home while raising my sons. I thought of no better way to continue than doing something I love while still working with children and parents. 

I received my Potty Training Certification from the Institute of Pediatric Sleep and Parenting and use the same philosophies from Violet’s very successful potty training program during my consultations. So you can be sure you are getting expert advice.

But most importantly, I have been in your position and I truly understand the process and struggles of potty training and trying to find what works for both you and your child. 

I get to know your child, what you are struggling with, and offer specific advice for your child’s unique situation to make sure we potty train your child quickly and effectively. 

I believe the more communication the better when working together and that teamwork is ultimately what makes your family so successful. I am so lucky to have this job and can’t wait to work with you and your little one.

We Are Beyond

Hi, I’m Violet! You may know me from my popular baby sleep website Sleep, Baby, Sleep®. I’m also a Registered Nurse, Pediatric Sleep Consultant, Author of Baby Sleep Training in 7 Days, but my favorite title of all is Mom.

My two girls have always kept me busy. From not sleeping when they were born, to the potty training woes, there has never been a dull moment. I created these two websites to help other parents who are struggling with the same troubles.

We Are Beyond

So how did I become a potty training expert you ask? Out of necessity! When it was time to potty train my daughter, I really struggled. She was very difficult to train. She had a strong fear of letting it go, literally cried and had cold sweats anytime she had to use the potty. It was heartbreaking. Traditional potty training methods did not work because the underlying road block had to be addressed first, her fear. So I tried different things, until we got it right.

Through my years of working with so many different families, I learned that there are many other road blocks that often stand in the way of potty training. Parents continued to express the same exact type of struggles. I created this website and The Potty Training Plan® to address these common issues. If you are still struggling with potty training beyond the tips on this website, take a look at my potty training packages. I would be glad to help you potty train!
