  • You can use the toilet if you want. They have toddler seats you can put on them. But I wouldn't start till she is ready. Giving you signs like bringing you a diaper to change her, letting you know when she has peed or poop or feeling yucky in the diaper.

  • Well I Have 2 Boys I Start Both Of My Boys At 14 Months . Get Chair That Sit On The Floor And Use That When They Watch Tv And Get One That Sits Right On The Toielt . By The Time i Got Done With The First one It Was Time To Start All Over Again . While U Are Potty Training Go From Pull ups And Underwear. During The Day I Would Use Underwear At Night Pull Ups.And At Nap Time Put Put Pull Ups On. Take Them To The Bathroom Every 1/2 Hr To And Before They Go To Bed Make Sure They Don't Have Nothing To Drink 1 Hr Before Bed . Well Email Me At If U Have Any Questions

  • definately wait until she shows interest in the potty!!!!!!!!!!!!! it will backfire if you don't my daughter is 32 months and is now potty trained (even wears underwear overnight with no accidents) but i waited until she told me she wanted to go potty. it makes it so much easier when the child shows interest if you are not forcing them to go. hope this helps!

  • Well of course you should wait til they show interest but be sure to give them the chance. My daughter was 2 1/2 when she was fully potty trained at day and night. She had showed lots of interest though when she was 18 months but it is all about letting them know your are proud of them. Just get the chair and let her use it when she shows interest i don't think it wil hurt my daughters is doing great and she is now just of 3.
