  • My son has always been interested in the potty. He used to think it was the neatest thing to watch daddy go! So we've always encouraged him to stay interested. We started sitting him on the potty when we could tell he needed to go (around a year and a half old), and got him a potty seat that fits on the big one and kinda let him decide. We started hard-core potty training a few months ago, and we're REALLY close to being done! He's 2 1/2 now, btw!

  • my daughter is 16 months and i would love love to start potty training now but what i have been told and read up on is u should start potty training when uur child gives u a sign there ready. ex they might point down at there diaper and say wet. lately ive been feeling her diaper when shes wet and asking if shes wet or poopy and say yuck i take her to the broom and show her when u have to go potty let mommy know and we go in the toilet. when ur baby is ready they will let u know and u will know the right time to buy pull ups it takes time so dont rush i dnt believe there is an exact age as long as its before kindergarden . hope i helped
