  • My daughter was petrified of the potty. She never sat on it once until she was over 3. The very first time she did she was trained. Advice from me would be to wait until she is 2 1/2 - 3. It's so much easier.

  • i started with my oldest around her 2nd birthday. she was ready though, by telling me she pooped or peed and understanding the whole potty concept. she was trained within 4 months. my middle just turned 2 and she's not ready at all. i think ill try again at 2 and a half unless she starts showing signs of readiness. best advice - wait til they are ready. it will be so much easier that way!

  • I was a sing'e mom with not alot of money. One day when my dd was almost 2 I ran out of diapers and didn't have any money so I just explained that she needed to go on the potty and I couldn't believe it she started going on the potty and never went back to diapers.

  • When she was 1 1/2, she told me she wanted to sit on the big potty. She did and never looked back!
