  • Start when you think that she is ready. Mine is totally ready at 15 mos and Daddy isn't on board and so I can't until he is. I would do it if she is ready.

  • When the two eldest celebrated their 2ed birthday it was in underwear. Not to say they where accident free, just they where very much on their way to being in control. Girls are faster then boys when it comes to the potty and controlling waste(?) I don't think being naked has anything to do with potty training, think its a comfort/kid thing. My son(2) does not like his da-dun-da-duns on with jeans, and rolls around commando when not home. Mase's preference at home is in the buff....Suggestion: Buy a potty that sings when you pee, put it there and ignore it until she shows interest in the thing. Then when you pee, have her come with you and gesture to the potty. She will get the hint if ready:) and if she does not like diapers that are wet/dirty and ask you to change the pronto, i think thats a sign. Its a long process and different for every kid..

  • I usually introduce my children at 18 months. Taking off their clothes at 1 is normal behavior. You should wait until you see more signal like staying dry for longer periods of time, predictable bm times. Be careful not to rush . You will know for sure soon enough . I waited til 18 months and my children went by 2 years - 2 years 2 months.
