Wait until she starts showing signs of being ready. I tried to early with my twins, and it was miserable for all three of us. So I took some time off and waited until they were ready. They started telling me when they had peed or pooped in their diapers. So I started putting them on the potty every once in a while, and worked it up until they were on the potty almost every 15-20 minutes. After the first time of them actually going in the potty, they got excited and wanted to do it all the time. I also used sticker charts for them...they would get one sticker if they peed, and two if they pooped, and then when they had a certain amount of stickers, they got something. It took me a total of about a month to get them fully trained, and they were 2 1/2 at the time.
