TWO award-winning authors and business women are urging parents thinking of beginning potty training their toddlers to take the plunge this week.

Judith Hough, from Shelfield, near Alcester, and Diane Titterton, from Broughton Hackett, near Worcester, are the founders of potty training product Dry Like Me, as well as being the authors of award-winning advice book, How to Potty Train.

They are using their knowledge of how to get children out of nappies and successfully potty trained to run a free programme of online potty training support, called Potty Training Live.

Potty Training Live runs until Sunday, August 10 with this week being named as Take the Nappy Off Week.

Last year, Potty Training Live saw television personality, Jenni Falconer take part to potty train her daughter, Ella, and write a blog about her experiences.
