new mom here..my daughter will be one next week..great walker and very smart for her age i think(every mom thinks that)..im curious as to when is the "right" time to start poddy training if there is one..no bashing please, just a question.Answer Question
The right time is when the child shows the signs of readiness.
From http://www.parentingscience.com/toilet-training-readiness.html :• Your child stays dry at least 2 hours at a time during the day or is dry after naps. • Bowel movements become regular and predictable. • Facial expressions, posture, or words reveal that your child is about to urinate or have a bowel movement. • Your child can follow simple instructions. • Your child can walk to and from the bathroom and help undress. • Your child seems uncomfortable with soiled diapers and wants to be changed. • Your child asks to use the toilet or potty chair. • Your child asks to wear grown-up underwear.
