Early-Start Potty Training by Linda Sonna


Early-Start Potty Training by Linda Sonna

'Dr. Sonna is giving parents and babies a wonderful opportunity to introduce the potty at an age when learning new skills is part of every day life' - Barbara Gablehouse, MD. Have your child completely potty-trained - by the age of two! Drawing on methods used with success around the world, Early-Start Potty Training shows that potty training your baby at an early age is not only possible, it's actually beneficial to your child's health. Drawing on the latest scientific studies, Early-Start Potty Training debunks the myth that it is better to start teaching after age two and gives you a step-by-step plan to be finished with diapers before your child's second birthday.Author of The Everything Potty Training Book , Dr. Linda Sonna explores the many drawbacks of the readiness method, including the emotional, financial, and health repercussions of waiting too long. Instead, she advocates loving, gentle, toilet learning methods, and proves that the earlier you introduce the potty, the better off your child will be. Early-Start Potty Training is full of caring steps, tips, and techniques to help speed your child's potty learning success, including: expecting success without pressuring your child; why a potty chair is better than a potty seat; the pitfalls of disposable diapers; preparing babies for potty independence; how to overcome toddler resistance; how to potty train - and prevent bedwetting - at any age.
