Is it better to use a separate potty for my child?

Is it better to use a separate potty for my child?

Yes: Yes for several reasons. First - touching the floor is comforting to little ones and alleviates some fears. Two - they can practice while you go and learn and train better.

Usually they develop from a single ossification center. Sometimes they may develop from two or more ossification centers. This is generally asymptomatic, but if painful it should be checked out by the appropriate hand or foot specialist ...Read more
