  • When she shows that she knows when she is about to pee or poop and can alert you in some way

  • My daughter showed signs of being ready at 17 months and was completely trained by 21 months. But...if they are not ready, you can't force it. Girls are much easier, though to potty train than boys!

  • When she is ready..

    Take her with you, get her a little potty and when you are on the bowl give her the potty and let her sit... :) Seeing makes you want to use it, she will do it when she is ready, but encouragement does not hurt. If she does it then do the potty dance...

  • I agree - when she shows signs of being ready. I read a study once that showed that kids who learned between the ages of 2 and 3 did better than kids trained earlier or later. And kids that learn a bit later tend to "get it" faster.

    But in general, whenever she seems interested.

  • Whenever she starts taking an interest in the tiolet. Let her sit on it and take it for a test drive.
