"The M.O.P. Book: Anthology Edition" —  Updated Advice on Resolving Daytime Accidents and

Back in 2014, I introduced the Modified O’Regan Protocol (M.O.P.) in a 12-page guide. By 2016, I had learned so much more about M.O.P. that Suzanne Schlosberg and I published The M.O.P. Book: A Guide to the Only Proven Way to STOP Bedwetting and Accidents, a 5-by-7-inch, 56-page manual.

That manual is now outdated. It's been replaced by The M.O.P. Book: Anthology Edition, a 156-page, 8.5-by-11-inch volume that contains everything I know about M.O.P. and includes numerous new recommendations. It is available as an instant PDF download or in paperback on amazon.

I know a lot more about M.O.P. than I used to, thanks to feedback from my patients and of from hundreds of parents who've belonged to our private Facebook support group. For example, I've gained more insight on how to:

•minimize odds of relapse

•adjust the protocol if your child is not progressing

•manage M.O.P. on vacation

•rebound from setbacks

•gain buy-in from your doctor and your child

The Anthology Edition marks the first time I’ve described M.O.P. as a four-phase process, and I’ve extended the length of the first three phases. Also, given growing concern about the safety of Miralax for children, I’ve included more extensive information on alternatives to PEG 3350. The new volume also includes more details on the addition of overnight oil-retention enemas, aka Double M.O.P.

And loads more.

The Anthology Edition not only updates the first edition but also includes an entire second book, Answers to 52 Questions About M.O.P. This book, formerly sold separately as an ebook, is drawn from conversations in our Facebook support group. This amazing group, essentially a laboratory for M.O.P., offers real-time input on all aspects of the protocol. The group includes some of the most challenging cases I have come across, and these parents are willing to push the envelope.

I have learned many lessons from them. Perhaps the most important: different variations of M.O.P. work for different children. Answers to 52 Questions About M.O.P. includes the most commonly asked questions about M.O.P., along with a wide variety of perspectives from parents in the trenches.

What’s more, the Anthology Edition includes extensive content from our blog posts, as well as The Physician’s Guide to M.O.P., the M.O.P. tracking calendar, and more. This compilation will save you a lot of time researching and downloading.

For anyone reading this post who is not already familiar with M.O.P., the protocol is based on five important facts:

Fact #1: Bedwetting and accidents are NOT normal. Yes, accidents are very common,

but that is not the same thing as normal — no matter what your doctor may have told you.

Fact #2: Virtually all bedwetting and daytime accidents are caused by chronic

constipation. That’s right. Accidents are caused by a rectum stuffed with poop — not “deep sleep” or an “underdeveloped bladder” or “stress” or behavior issues.

Fact #3: You cannot assume a child will outgrow bedwetting. In fact, left untreated,

a child who is bedwetting at age 9 has about a 70% chance of becoming a bedwetting adult.1 The earlier you treat these issues, the better.

Fact #4: You must treat bedwetting aggressively. Doctors may tell you M.O.P. is “too extreme.” I would argue that yes, M.O.P. is extreme — extremely effective. Nothing else comes close.

Fact #5: Bedwetting and accidents are never a child’s fault. Bedwetting is, straight

up, a medical condition — something that children have absolutely no control over. It is critical for parents and children to understand this. Our children’s book, Bedwetting And Accidents Are Not Your Fault, is required reading for you and your child!

Despite what you may have heard, bedwetting is not a mystery. It is a medical condition

with a very obvious cause — and a very clear solution.

The M.O.P. Book: Anthology Edition will help you implement this solution. You can download the introduction and read the table of contents here.
