During the day, if she notices that I'm giving DS all my attention (and trust me, that will NOT go by unnoticed by her), she will use that opportunity to do "interesting" things to try to get MY attention. Confining her to a small area would drive us both crazy after only half a day, much less three days or a week or more.

But anyway, I can't really do the method anyway because I also work at home, and the household needs my little bit of income or we won't make ends meet, and my income is production based, so if I don't work then I don't get paid. If I knew FOR SURE that it would ONLY take three days, I could possibly do it, but more often than not, I hear stories of the "three-day" method taking a week or more.
