  • If he is ready- that is if he has enough bladder control- then very fast. I waited until mine were dry at night- about age 3, and it took one weekend to train them.

  • Well since you are posting in the 1-2 year category probably a while, my DS was not ready, waited until 2 and a half and it took about 1 week!

  • My 19 month daughter trained in less than a week... in my opinion, it can go very quickly if you skip the pull-ups and go straight to undies. A lot of messes to clean up for a few days, and then you're through it.

  • We waited until they were 3 and it took my oldest 2 weeks, my second son it took a month. I'm not even going to hazard a guess as to the third. He's STUBBORN.

  • My older son took me a while before he was completely potty trained. (Had no help from his dad) My younger son was easy he wanted to do everything like his daddy (different guy) & big brother. Had some accidents for a few days but after that he was good to go. I also skipped the pull ups because they're really nothing more than a diaper.
