  • When your child shows signs that s/he is ready for it.

  • My son just turned two last month, at this point I ask him about every 45 minutes if he has to potty, if he says yes, he runs to the bathroom and I sit him on the potty and he goes! He gets a treat and we put a diaper back on...Im trying to keep it stress free and fun! But he doesnt tell me he has to potty I have to ask!! With a 9 month old and him Its REALLY hard to keep up with it EVERY 30-45 minutes!!!! It never hurts to start practice though!

  • Your child should be able to stay dry through the night because that is a sign they have control over the function in addition to the awareness of being soiled.
