Signs of potty training. I think if they can take their clothes off, put their clothes on that is a start. If they can stay dry for long periods of time. If they can communicate it in some way (though predictability can help). I use to have a checklist that I'd go by, but it's not on this computer. Like the PP said, it'll come naturally so don't push. You can encourage, reward, praise, and not pressure the child into training and it should happen when it happens. My baby is 22 months and we've been on and off with him. He doesn't have all the signs to fully work with it, but we have the potty for him to try at least 3x a day to get him the idea. My 4 yr old is still having training issues so it can definitely take time and patience. G'luck to you.
