When I potty trained my daughter, she had just turned 2. She was still in a crib, and I didn't have any issues with it. (However, I did have some issues when I transitioned from the crib to a toddler bed, but that's a whole different story).
We did not use pull ups. I have nothing against them, but the book I read made a strong argument against them, so I decided to go that route. If she needed to pee at night, she would call for me. I can't remember how often it happened, and yes it is not fun...but she learned very quickly to not wet the bed at night.
We did the 3 day method. We started by "throwing away" her diapers. (really, I put the leftovers in the closet for her brother to use later). It went very well. I would say she was 90% potty trained by the end of the 3rd day. Have we had hic-ups? Yes. But I think that happens with every child.
I'm about to start potty training my son. He just turned 2 in August. People say boys are harder...we'll see. :-) I plan on using the same approach. I'm sure there will be different challenges. He's already in his toddler bed, so I know that will be different. But I'm trying to stay positive.
