  • If she seems ready and shows the signs of being ready, sure! My son is 20 months old and he isn't really showing any signs.

  • You can start before they show signs. We just put the baby on the potty when the toddler is going. She now asks to go. And goes in the potty maybe 3 times a day. She's 14 months old. She's never been forced, and think it's a fun game. We started my other daughter at 21 months, and she was done by 2. She never showed signs until we showed her the potty was for her, too, At this age, don't expect immediate accident free results. But you'll finish a lot earlier than others start. Finishing early, rather than a short training period, is my goal.
