Potty Training
My baby will be starting at a new creche soon and they start potty training at 16 months. Is that right? I thought potty training is only started at around 2 years. How do you tell when your child is ready?

There are no hard and fast rules. As long as the chreche does not force discipline in this regard on the children, there is probably no harm done. You may also refer to the book Toddler Taming I mentioned previously.
