  • 19 months with our first. Although we got her a potty at 16 months and let her play on it/sit on it when she chose. At 19, almost 20 months, we switched straight to underwear and she was day trained in a week. My second daughter's 15 months now and tells me every time she poops, many times when she pees, and has even told me a couple of times before and we've sat her on the potty. I think we might start slightly earlier with her -- like 17-18 months.

  • My son has moderate autism,so we worked on it for almost 5 years from 3-8! He was fully trained just this past June at 8! Longgggg process!

  • We introduced the potty at about a year. We didn't start really training them until they were 3. We're on the last one, now!

  • Well, my daughter was about 9 months when she first said "no diaper" when she was 9 months and I tried to delay it as much as I could, but the kid just didn't want diapers anymore!

  • Around 16 mos. My oldest was day and night trained by 27 mos., my middle is still having issues at night and she's 5, and my 2.5 yo is doing awesome during the day but still wears a diaper at night (so he isn't officially trained yet).
