All you can do is have the potty available for when they are ready! Maybe buy a few books about potty training and get the concept "out there". Also, what works for one child may not work for another. My oldest daughter p/t herself at 18 months. My son had no interest until he was around 26 months. Who knows when my baby will be ready. One thing that worked for my son was putting a movie in, plonking him down on the potty and loading him up with watered-down juice. Eventually he just peed and was like "woah! what was that?" I did that every day for about a month and he eventually learned how to control his bladder. Of course, your child must be willing to zone out on a potty for an hour and a half for this to work. If they are unwilling or scared don't get upset, just understand that their body is not ready, and revisit the concept at a later time.
