Is your toddler ready to begin potty training? What about a preschooler with frequent accidents or a fear of pooping in the toilet? And how long is it normal for kids to be dry during the day and still struggle with staying dry at night? We get so many questions about potty training that we called in an expert to help sort out these and other typical potty training challenges. Join Meagan and Sarah as they share their own potty training experiences and seek the counsel of psychologist Dr. Heather Wittenberg, who weighs in on questions from our listeners.

This episode and our interview with Dr. Heather are made possible by Pull-Ups and GoodNites, two fantastic tools to have in your potty training and bedwetting arsenal. Meagan and Sarah are fans of both products, having relied on them with our own kids.
Pull-Ups, which are designed to look and fit more like underwear, offer great protection while also teaching potty training skills, and we love that they offer potty training resources right on their website at pull-ups.com.
GoodNites are a total sanity-saver for parents and kids who deal with nighttime wetting, because they’re specifically designed to fit and provide protection for young children who are only wet at night. GoodNites also offers tips and advice on nighttime wetting at goodnites.com.
