  • No its a perfect time to start. Is she taking off her own diaper or telling you she went potty? Those are sure signs of being ready. I like the idea of using a stool and a little toilet seat for the big potty. It worked great for my 2 girls. You can either use pullups like the cool alert ones or underware with the rubber underwear to wear over them. They've both worked for me. And the main thing is to remind her to go potty often during the day.

  • If she can walk, she can be potty trained.
