  • We did some half-assed potty training from about 13 months until about 2, but at 25 months, we did the 3 day method, and we haven't used a diaper since. It was AWESOME!!!!!

  • My 1st dd was 2.5 when she started and got potty trained. My youngest is only 16 months so it's still a little early

  • My oldest we started at 2 1/2 and it took about 8 months, my 2nd we started at around 26 months and only took about 2 weeks and my youngest is only 10 months old but i think that 2 yrs is a good age. BTW they are all girls

  • About 2 1/2 and trained at 3.

    People will tell you that their kids were born potty trained.

  • We started elimination communication at 3 months. We aren't really serious about it, but we have several catches in the potty every day.
