Five potty training tips from Dr. Smith:

Tip #1:  Make sure the child is ready. Look for signs. 

Tip #2: Have the right equipment. A little potty, a special seat, etc., and rewards help too!

Tip #3: Parents, introduce your child to the bathroom. 

Tip #4: Be prepared to ditch the diaper. You don’t want to send your child mixed messages.
