My daughter is 2... she is showing a little (not much) interest in the potty but I think she thinks it is a game. When is the right time to start??

  • I started around 20 months, just putting my son on it before baths and during diaper changes. He quickly got the hang of it once he accidentally peed in the potty.

  • Best time is when she's about 13 months if u dont nail it then, skip 2 and it is a sure thing at 3, just be consistent and take her 10 minutes after she drinks everytime if your lazy she''ll be lazy and praise her when she does it the same way u did with her first word or her first step works everytime!!!
