  • My son tries, he's 15months. It's really cute, he tries putting on his socks and shoes, sometimes even his pants or shirt. He usually doesn't succeed and gets mad.

  • About 2 1/2 when she was fully dressing herself, including shirts and buttoning up her coat.

  • My 5 year old finally started at about 3. My three year old CAN do it...but needs some pushing.

    My 2 year old has a clue and helps as we dress him. (but he only has a clue LOL)

  • Around 2 1/2-3. My youngest is almost 3 and has been dressing herself without help, including her socks and shoes since she was like 28 months.
