We tried at 2 years but my daughter did get it, so I waited 6 months. At that time she was ready. It took a week. We did away with pants, pull ups, and diapers and just let her go bare bottom. Our house was stocked up with groceries so we stayed home the whole time. I let her drink water or juice as much as she wanted which made more bathroom trips. The first few days I set a timer for every 20 minutes and took her to go sit on the potty for 3 minutes even if she didn't need too. Then I moved to an hour. The first few days were so tough. I wanted to give up...but we stuck it out.. Around day five she started peeing in the potty! I had books by the potty that I sat down and read. I would turn the water on in the sink to help her potty. Make a potty treat jar with m&ms. Or stickers, stamps etc. Give a reward the first few days for sitting on the potty...then rewards for using the potty!
