  • its just a matter of trial and error. They'll will potty train when they are ready. If she shows interest in going then i'd take her now, whether or not shes actually using the potty, just the fact thats shes getting accustom to it is a good thing. Try to find some potty training books for her that you can read to her, my son liked those and we would talk about them while he sat there. lol.

  • My son is 23 months and we started training this past week. He's taken to it very well and I expect he'll be fully day trained by his second birthday.

  • My LO has been trained for the last 4 weeks and she is turning two in 10 days. She is doing great and if your LO wants to train then train her. You can do it now if you want to instead of waiting. It just takes a lot of patience and you already know that.

  • I will let her go..She just comes and tells me what she has to do and I take her diaper off her and she will go in there but I'm not sure if she is still to young but I do want her to be potty trained b/c I want to be done with diapers for awhile before I have another one and my SO and I are going to start TTC after her 2nd birthday
