iStockphoto.comFew things cause new parents as much anxiety, fear and excitement as diapers and potty training do. If you're looking for a "poopendous" adventure into all things relating to your little one's...um...business, head over to "Potty Palooza" at Pinwheel Books in Brookline next Tuesday. The event features a number of experts offering advice and tips -- from the latest diapering techniques to the truth on why cloth diapers aren't as icky as they seem. Also, you'll hear from scientists on the topic of poop -- why it's important to discuss it with your kids, and how you can use that discussion to explore the science of digestion. Naturally, you'll also get fantastic advice on potty training, giveaways, and a ton of potty-training products to check out (including a new, predictably noisy, animated iPad app called "All About Poop"). There will be a kids' corner with babysitting to keep your little ones occupied while you explore, and light refreshments will be served. Poop-tastic! Tues., Nov. 13, 10:45 a.m. - noon. Free. Space is limited; registration required. Pinwheel Books, 1622 Beacon St., Brookline. www.pottypalooza.eventbrite.com
