Getting down the pill that is hard to swallow

Tall tales may be hard to swallow, but they're a lot easier than the five-at-once swords daredevil Dan Meyer eased down his esophagus in 2005 (they punctured his stomach) or the 30-inch sword he swallowed two years later - while submerged in a tank with 88 sharks and stingrays. But, believe it or not, for many people, swallowing medication is even more challenging.

John Rosemond: Parents need to toilet-train children before 'so-called readiness signs'

Q: Using your advice, I successfully toilet-trained my daughter by age 16 months. It is now three months later and we are still using diapers at naps and nighttime. At her nap, which lasts several hours, she fully soaks her diaper. At night, she is taking off her diaper prior to falling asleep, wetting the bed after she goes to sleep, and then crying for us when she wakes up in a pool of pee. Is this a sign that I should begin night training? I'm hesitant to do this because I am 8 months pregnant and don't relish the idea of waking up several times a night to take her to the bathroom and tending to a newborn as well. I would prefer to continue using diapers until she is old enough to get out if bed and take herself to the potty (even a potty in her room). Is this unrealistic? Or should I just deal with the extra night-wakings and start taking her to the potty a few times a night now? If not, how do I keep her diaper on at night?
