  • Before the second birthday because his BM were predictable at the time.

  • at about 15-16 months i introduced the potty. I would let him sit every time i was on the toilet. Then by 18 months he started stripping himself and going in the bathroom that is when i realized the was ready he was fully potty trained almost immediately (except for nights). We would give him a tootsie roll every time he would go potty and cheer him on. But about 3 weeks ago he just stopped so now i am trying to fix this. (he is 21 months now)

  • I had no luck with training starting at age 2. When my daughter was 3 and still had never used the potty I had my babysitter do it for me. One week and she was trained. She also trained my other daughter who was 2 at the time. Makes me feel inadequate as a mom. She also broke the paci habit for me.

  • I waited until he showed all the signs. He was took less than a week to go completely diaper/pull-up free. No issue since.
