  • My son was potty trained when he was 3 years old. One day he up and decided he wanted to be a big boy and go in the potty....other than that he was kicking and screaming everytime I suggested the potty and it was very stressful. With this next child I'll wait until my little on is ready and not listen to everyone else and try to MAKE him potty trained. I got A LOT of grief because he was 3 and not potty trained. I'll tell everyone to shut up next

  • my first dd was 19 months and my second dd was 15 months when she was almost trained, but she cought rotavirus and had diarreha for 2-3 weeks so we had to back off so by the time we started back up she was 18 or 19 months old then she potty trained at 21 or 22 months old

  • My oldest son started at 18 months and was trained before his third birthday. He still wore a pull-up because I was nervous - not because he needed it for another 6 months. My second child was the same - but he's 3 1/2 now and still needs a pull-up. He's just now starting to wake up and use the bathroom in the night if need be.

  • Oh, who remembers that far back. I think the 1st was trained by the time he was 4, the 2nd by the time he was 3 (he didn't like big brother doing something he couldn't. I never actually "trained" him. He did it himself.) The 3rd by the time he was 3; I think. My kids are 26, 24, and 16. Don't hold me to this, ok.
