  • You start when they are ready and I don't know b/c I have a girl who has been at it for the 2nd time around for a week and today no accidents today which is 2 days out of 8 that she has been dry.

  • I think one child may be harder then another but i dont think boys are harder in general. My 1st son was potty trained in three days before he turned two. When to start depends on your child. Good Luck!
