Potty training, when did you start?

My 18 month old has started sneaking off to poop & will say eww "tinky". So dads off buying her a potty chair.

What age did you start potty training?

  • I started mines at 22 months. It took me a week to train him. It all depends how ready they are :)

  • mine was day trained at 3 year 9 months
    nighttime before 3
    her body was ready, but not her *mind

    therapists all said she would NEVER be potty trained before 4
    she proved them all wrong

  • did have a little potty chair early on - around age 2, for her to "play" around with= get used to
    she could do it all the time at age three, if she had no clothes on, but put any clothes on her and she could not remember all the steps, or just feeling of anything on her body... was not happening

  • I tried once or twice when my daughter was about two, mostly due to social pressure. Things went badly, so I stopped and let her decide when she was ready. The process happened easily in ten days when she was three and a half, no stress.

  • I'm with 2autisticsmom. We started around 2(perhaps a little earlier) but don't ask when he was finally trained lol

    He didn't like the sensory feel without diapers and just underwear.
