  • If they give any sign that they may need to go, or have gone, that can be a sign. If they can communicate with you, they can be potty trained. We used the 3 day method at 25 months (it recommends 22 months, but that was the soonest we could). It worked really well for us.

  • When they can pull their pants and underpants down and if they can say No! It's mine, then they can say potty or pee pee or poo. I have a 2 year old we are potty training and when he was debating snacks and fighting with older siblings over toys and getting himself undressed to take a bath, we knew he was capable of potty in the potty. It takes us longer because we have him every other weekend and his mom and gma over there keep diapers on him but he's smart and hes getting the hang of it.

  • I started my now 7 yr old when she was ready for pull ups. Pull up are the training pants ans very expensive so i got on the pot as soon she was able to wear pull ups and she didn't stay in them long either. Good Luck!
