  • i started at 1 in half but both my son and daughter were not fully potty trained till 3 in a half, thats when they had poop and pee down. by 3 they had the pee down. the tips i would say is, don't rush them, start with just teaching them to pee in the potty and diapers at nap and bed time, then once that down pact then start to teach them to poop in the potty. with my now 2yr old she has a 3yr old sister so she want s to copy so she is beginning to pee in the potty and i noticed she will go on herself if i put her in pantys but if i let her run the house naked she will go to the potty. i started letting them all streak when beginning potty training, there is just something about them not wanting to pee on the floor, yeah they had a couple of accidents but alot less then using underwear. and pullups suck
