When Is Toddler Ready For Potty Training

Potty training is one of those inevitable things that all parents and children must face sooner or later. We have just about succeeded with our first daughter, who is pretty much ‘potty trained’ in its truest sense; she knows when it is coming, where to go and how to do it. It was a little tricky at first but after just one week she got the hang of it and after another week or two, she insists on doing everything herself. There are still […]
