  • Depends on the child. My eldest was 2 months at 18 months. My next took 2 years! The last took a week. Have fun!

  • My Son was fully potty trained after only four days of training, at just under 2 1/2 years old. He will be 4 in June. =]

  • with my older two it took each of them about 2/3 days with NO accidents.
    I dont believe in MAKING them train... I waited until they were ready.

  • 3 weeks with my son; about a month with my daughter. And once they were trained, they were trained day AND night.

  • both my kids took about 2 weeks - my daughter was barely 2 and my son was 2 1/2 (though he had an occasional wet bed for years)

  • I think we tried too early with our son so it felt like a long time.. but once he was ready, it took a week and he was also day and night trained at the same time.

  • About a year. We are still working on night time... he has an occassional accident. We started training when he was three,
