Early Potty Trainning!

I put my 7 month old on the potty when i was in the bathroom and see pooped. I didn't thing she would do anything i just did it for fun. My mom said that she read something that said that early potty trainning is good because the will learn it quicker and be easier to train. My mother in law knew someone that had their kid trained by 6 months of age. Is is crazy to be doing it this early. Could it hurt or help anything. Advice Please.

  • Many moms do elimination communication from birth.. There is no such thing as "too early".
    My DD1 was fully out of diapers by 18 months. So was I, for that matter..
    If she'll sit on the toilet, let her!
    Potty training is a lot of fun (in my opinion).
    There's no harm in putting her on the toilet and trying!

  • im not sure that you will be able to potty train her this early and i dont think its something that should be forced (you shouldnt expect her to potty train) but as long as she is interested in it there is no harm in it. however, if she loses interest you should stop and wait until shes older.

  • PERSON THAT ASKED THE QUESTION: She did poop when i put her on the potty and she'll set there and dosn't fuss and cry. She laughs, smiles, and plays. I guess that she is pretty intersted in sitting on the potty.

  • I'm sure, it might be too early. Maybe she had to go at that moment. I would wait a little longer.

  • I am not sure. My oldest was potty trained AT school by 14 months. Now at home that was another story. At home she wanted to be the baby but at school she was at an infant center where her class room was any where from 12 months to 3 year olds. She wanted to be like the big kids she was very active but my little one she is only crawling nothing eles, and will be a year in 2 weeks. So it is all about what you want to do. I have heard some other countys do it early lookit up.

  • in other countries it's normal to put a baby on a potty as soon as they can sit upright, they call it "potting the baby" as long as there's no pressure and it's just a fun thing I think it's a great idea. One less diaper to change anyway!
