  • I started on mine at 3. It took a few months, but he finally got the hang of it.

  • When my daughter turned two. it took her 4 months to get it down. But she never had to wear pull ups through the day only at night.

  • I waited until my kids turned 3. It took 2-3 days to be completely trained. I went right to underwear.

  • We started introducing the potty at 18 months. we would empty poopy diapers into it and tell the poopy bye bye and flush. Just silly stuff really. And than at 20 months he would tell me when he had to poop cause he wanted to watch it flush down. He just turned two last week and we are still trying to get peepee down but he is doing pretty good so far.

  • My son started at 3 years. He potty trained himself in about a week. It really helps if they just control this one.

  • We tried around 18 and did the worse thing you can do we pushed her so she regressed and didn't potty train till 3.5 years old.

  • Just about 2 months ago. I kept trying to get my oldest to go to the potty but he just kept telling me no until we had friends come over and when he saw the little boy go to the potty he finally gave in right before he turned four.

  • 1 year. Maybe a little sooner. Every child is different though. Whatever you do, do not get discouraged.
