  • My daughters only 12 months so I'm not quite there yet but I heard from numerous people that you should start potty training at 18 months but it all depends on your child of course.

  • psychologists say that 18months is ideal...give or take

    so she should be fine to start if she starts being interested

  • My son was 25 months I think, and he went really fast. We waited until he was ready. My daughter is 19 months now and we have already started with her a little because she is acting ready.

  • If she is ready go for it(no more diapers=yay) but i wouldnt suggest it if she isn't ready for it

  • my daughter trained at 18 months. my niece turned 3 in june and is just ready to train now. there's no magic number. if your baby seems ready, then go for it.

  • Is she showing signs of readiness? Pulling at her diaper, wanting it changed as soon as she goes? If she is, go for it! If not, don't push her, you could delay training if you force it on her.

  • 18-24 months is a reasonable time to start. It's all about signs of readiness, not age, though.
