We started our son right after his second birthday. He got a big boy potty seat and big boy underwear for his birthday, so he was excited about it. He had already been going every once in awhile, but was still wearing diapers. It was still good to know he was interested first though. We did training on and off (if he got tired of it, we stopped and picked up at a later date) and by the time he was 2 and 4 months he had had zero accidents during the day for about a month, so we started underwear at naptime and bedtime too. He has been completely potty-trained since then. He is 2 and 9 months now and has never had an accident in his bed, so I'm glad we waited a while until he was ready. I did not want to have to wash sheets every other night, lol. Oh, and buying a stool and standing your son up might work better than sitting him down. We started out with our son sitting and he wasn't a big fan, he loved standing though.
