  • I tried to potty train my son at a little over 2 years old.maybe 2 1/2. He was not ready. I would have to sit him on teh potty myself and would just continue having accidents. We moved overseas before he turned 3 and then when we got settled I started to potty train him again. It must have clicked this took me one day and then he went to the potty himself. That is how I knew he was ready. No accidents since then. It literally took me like one day to accomplish the whole potty training.

  • At about 21mo, she showed tremendous interest for about a week. Then she never mentioned it again until she was 27mo she wanted to wear big girl panties and never once had an accident, or even any really urgent moments.

    I sometimes think she was waiting until she could do it perfectly. That's so her...

  • Van turned two in december and we're potty training now. He's got the idea and we'd be fully potty trained if I hadn't been dead sick the last two weeks. I imagine we'll be fully diaper free in a week. :)

  • I waited until there were clear indications he was ready, which was around 2.5. He was day trained in a few weeks. He was fully night trained by the time he was three.

    My younger son is 18 months and nowhere near ready to start. He doesn't seem to have any concept of it.
