Where to Begin with Potty Training

My daughter will be 24 months old this Saturday and my husband and I think now would be a good time to start trying to potty train her. I just have no clue how to begin. She is great at telling us that she has had a BM, but doesn't say much when she is wet (unless she is soaked). She has on occassion stated that she has to go potty and has tinkled a few times in the stool. Before we switched daycares she was actually having her BM in the stool. That has stopped. When she says she has to go potty we put her on the stool even if we...

Best Book for Potty Training?

Hi Moms, I am about to start potty training my 2 1/2 year old DD and need advice on how to do it. Is there a really good book out there that anyone could recommend?

Peeing Through Pullups

My son is 16-months old, and weighs almost 26 pounds. He has been wearing Huggies-brand overnight pullups at night for a little over two months. We usually use cloth diapers during the day, unless we are going to be out of the house for several hours and then we put him in Huggie's Naturals or Earth's Best disposables. My son pees so much at night that he has needed the heavier overnight-style disposables since he was probably about 8 months old so that he wouldn't pee out and wake up in the middle of the night. We are not potty...
