I tried to start my boys at around 2, and they were not ready, had constipation problems, accidents, it was horrible. They both trained closer to 3. My daughter on the other hand, is 18 months, and will take off her own diaper and go sit on the potty. Most of the time, but she will still go in her diaper if she is busy playing or something. It is never to early to introduce the concept, but go with your childs cues, if he/she is stuborn about it, or continues to have accidents then they are obviously not ready. What ever you do don't force the issue or it will cause th echild to regress and may take even longer to train.
