  • I guess you can introduce the potty to him but I think most boys don't really potty train till about 2 1/2-3ish.
    If you are serious about potty training then I would put him in underwear and get your rewards ready. I would get him a potty chair and start by putting him on the potty every 30 minutes. Give him lots of liquids so he can practice using the potty. I potty trained my 2 year old in 3 days. I used the book pottywise by Gery Ezzo.
    Good Luck!

  • Don't push him, when he is ready you will know. Most boys aren't ready until atleast 2 1/2 yrs old. If he just learned to walk, then I would say he is too young to be potty trained. Can he even talk enough to tell you that he has to go potty? I think it's important that he can tell you when he has to go.
