  • Well they say it is a sign that when they do this they are ready...but like you said ...he is only 11 months old, i would still put him on the potty but i wouldn't hold my breath... keep trying and maybe he will prove us all wrong..

  • I would give it a try. He may suprise you!! I started putting my kids on around 9 months to a year. Just before bathtime. My oldest actually started going and caught on pretty quickly. My second born LOVED sitting on the potty but never went until he was over 2 years. My daughter started going at 9 months and goes about 60-75% of the time. She will be 1 this week. (Imo, it never hurts to try!)

  • I'd think that it might be a good time to introduce, and discuss the potty, but don't expect any real, consistent success for a while.

  • if he already is understanding what the potty then go for it...just have him use the potty a few times a day at first and work your way up...i was 100% potty trained at 1 year (but my mom put diapers on me at night just in case)...the earlier he learns the better, it will save you tons on diapers as well...good luck mama
