This is NOT age based. You have two choices:
Start whenever you want (some start at birth) but plan on doing all of the work. This is teaching the child to go in a certain spot (the potty) when you take him there. You will have to take your child on a set schedule and/or learn his body's schedule. If you want to do this, look for a book on elimination communication.
You wait until your child is ready to learn the full potty training process, which means teaching him to get there on his own without a schedule or prompting from you and do what needs to be done with little to no help. This is usually sometime after age 2.
Both have advantages, both have disadvantages. If this is what you are thinking of, try â€œThe No Cry Potty Training Solution".
