If you are about to potty train your little one, I wish you Good Luck! Fortunately we found a great book, got lots of advice and kept our patience and we had a very positive experience.
Not all experiences will end up positive if you are not armed and ready with all the right tools. Besides a potty, you will need a great book to help you will all the steps and I think these books will help you go from diapers to underwear in a snap.
