  • It depends on the child. I had my daughter potty trained by the time she was 2 and my son is 2 and I am still trying to potty train him.

  • I started my son at 2. It's been quite an adventure. I probably would have waited a few more months but I just had a baby and I didn't want to be changing 2 kids diapers...and he's going to school in September and he has to be potty trained by then.

  • i started toilet training my boys who r 3 at the age of 3. its harder for boys to be toilet trained so i thought id wait until 3. but for my daughter i probably will around 2 and a half maybe?

  • my son potty trained himself right after he turned 3, just decided one day that he was a big boy! :o) so darn cute! That was EASY!

    I've been trying to actually work with my daughter on it, she'll be 3 in a week or so, and she's just not there yet. Instead of trying to push and getting frustrated, I'm just going to wait until she's ready.

  • We started our kids by 18 months. It is completely up to you and when they show interest. Our kids would always bring us their diaper at that age and ask us to change them. That was a good hint for us that it was time. :)
