Puberty at 7 ? ? ?

My daughter is 7yrs old (she weighs 49lbs) and has a lump on one breast so I took her to the dr today to have it checked out and the dr said that the lump was actually breast tissue growing. She said that its puberty. Anyone had this happen to their daughter this early? Seven just seems so early. (I'll be honest, I don't remember when I started getting my breasts when I was her age) Should I get a second opinion?

Best Book for Potty Training?

Hi Moms, I am about to start potty training my 2 1/2 year old DD and need advice on how to do it. Is there a really good book out there that anyone could recommend? I'm just confused where to start - like do I put her in pull ups or make a big deal of buying some fun underwear? She has been using her potty at night at home on a sort of regular basis, but we just let her run around naked - so how do I start to show her how to do it with clothes on? And the potty travels around the whole apartment! Should I be placing it in the bathroom...
