Flying Across the Country

Hello all. I am a single mom flying across the country.... next myself... with my 1 year old. This will be his 3rd trip already and he has done great!

He isn't walking yet (I will use the Ergo carrier to carry him) and he will be sitting on my lap. I would love to hear how you survived the ordeal too!

Potty Training Advice

My son is just about 17 months old and we are thinking of trying to potty train him (you never know until you try!). Are there books you could recommend? More specifically, how-to books for adults and age-appropriate books for kids on what to do and why we do it. In addition, is their equipment that you liked and didn't like (potty seats, pull-ups, underwear...)? We would appreciate any information that you have for us.
