  • depends on the child. my son was going to the bathroom for the last 3 days without any accidents and today he refused to wear underwear and wanted a diaper on.

  • not sure I started with my oldest at 12 months, but with it turning into summer she didn't want to go into use the potty so I gave up until 18 months then took oe month to the day to teach her been potty trained ever since and she is 5 now. My youngest I started at 13 months and she was nearly fully potty trained until she cought rotavirus she was 15 or 16 months old when she was nearly trained, but I had to back off cause of the virus she had diarehea for 3 weeks straight so I had to wait until she got better so I started back up at about 19 months then she was fully trained day, night and nap by 22 months old. But really depends on the child and how consistant you are to it. If you aren't consistant it wont work. I believe that it is all about consistancy

  • I started talking to my son about the potty and taking him to the potty occasionally, to see his interest, as well as putting him in underwear for a few hours here and there, around 18 months. We didn't push it or do any kind of rewards or charts or anything, just giving him the option and showing him what to do when he was ready. He was diaper-free by about 28 months though he still has accidents a few times a week (mostly bedwetting) at 34 months.

  • It also depends on their bladder. My daughter's bladder didn't expand or grow fast enough and she had issues holding it. Eventually she (or her bladder) grew out of it. My son on the other hand had no problem.

  • I don't potty train my kids, I let them train themselves. When you do it that way it only takes a couple days for them to train w/ very little accidents. My oldest son was 3 1/2yrs old when he did it and my 2nd son was 21mo old. Let your child take the lead
