Washing hands after using the potty is almost as exciting as the cracker for some reason.

Adventures in Potty-Training: Part One

For at least a year I have been dreading the “big transitions” that come at 2 years old.

Just two days after his birthday party we started weaning from the pacifier and [...]


Potty Challenges with Public Restrooms

“Trainers” and Trainer Accessories

When Ellie was almost two, she started using the potty. Despite not being a very verbal kid, she took to it like a champ. At 24 months on the dot, she was staying dry all day. For naps, too. Overnights took a little longer, but bladders and muscle control are still maturing, just like the [...]
