At what age did you start potty training?

My daughter is 18 months old and I know I'll have to start thinking about it in the next few months or so. We haven't introduced the potty yet but I think we will in the next six months.

  • I potty trained my son at 2 and 1/2 years old. I was pregnant and didn't want to have 2 in diapers. I did the 3 Day Method and it least for the daytime. Night time took longer and even now we still have the ocassional accident.

  • I started training my boys about three years. They didn't show any interest. My daughter, however, began using the potty with much success about 18m old. She's two now and we only wear diapers when we're going to Grandma's house. lol

  • I started at 18 months only because she seemed interested in learning.

  • We started potty training our son around 16 months of age. He's 22 months old now and he is almost fully trained (he's still having some nighttime accidents). A lot of people say to wait until the child shows interest, but that's not necessarily the case. I would notice our son squatting in the corner or grabbing himself when he was going in his diapers, and that's when I knew it was time to start training him. He noticed that he was doing something and it was becoming uncomfortable for him. The thing is to make it fun and make a deal of everything! Let them help you choose the potty, set it up, and just make it a fun process.
