Conventional wisdom tells parents that they should delay potty training to toddler age, and only after seeing signs of readiness. But is that really the best way? In Diaper-Free Before 3, Dr. Jill Lekovic presents the new case that early training--beginning as early as nine months olds--is most natural, healthy, and beneficial for your child, based on medical evidence. By incoporating the potty into your child's routine early on, toilet training becomes far less stressful for both parent and child. Dr. Lekovic's method, which she has used successfully with her own kids and recommends to patients, helps children become better aware of their body's signals, boosts confidence, and decreases the risk of urinary health problems. The guide includes informative chapters on bedwetting, accidents, and adapting the method for day care, special-needs children, and older toddlers. Offering a technique that really works and turns toilet training into a positive experience, Diaper-Free Before 3 is sure to become a new parenting classic.

Why can't more parenting books be this short and skimmable? I mean, the authors MUST know their intended audience has young children?

Anyway: this is blissfully short, and the first almost-half of the book is spent convincing parents that babies CAN be potty-trained before they turn 3, or 2 even. Which means if you're on-board before the book even comes into the library for you, you can skip ahead to Chapter 3.

The book lays out a plan starting around 6 months, but then has a chapter on starting with older kids, in her world around 3. There's no middle ground, but the quick & dirty How-To chart in the middle basically says "these are recommended ages; start whenever and progress through on stages when the kid has mastered each one." So there's that.

Other bonus: basically, the system laid out in this book is what I was planning on doing: make the potty available, sit the kid on it regularly to get used to it, then at set intervals to see if he needs it, then drop diapers in favor of training pants. Score another win for my lazy-but-instinctive parenting, I guess, and we're off to Babies R Us to buy a potty next weekend.
