On Potty Training

A major topic of concern for many parents is potty training.  I try to encourage parents that potty training is something we need to handle with each child and each family individually.  

One of the trends that seems to have been growing and I am getting more and more questions about lately is potty training at the infant/toddler age.  I am very cautious of this.  I agree that children are plenty intelligent.  I agree that many children are "capable".  My concern is that not every child is READY! :)

I've read a great piece in Huffington Post entitled A Doctor Responds: Don't Potty Train Your Baby.  It's a good read...check it out!
