  • Well i know from family, friends and pediatrician, that once you started you should keep it up. Its really hard. We are having a hard time too with our little girl. Shes freaking out sometimes. But she is freaking out even more when her pants are wet. haha..

    she ist almost 17months now.

  • he isnt even a year and a half yet. i say it is way to early. let him get comfortable with the chair first. i have had the potty in our bathroom since she was 14 mos and my dd loves her chair. i have been waiting until she can tell what peeing or pooing feels like. she is almost 19 mos and is showing signs. wait until HE is ready.

  • I STARTED POTTY TRAINING ABOUT 18 MONTHS OLD AND HE DID GOOD FOR A WEEK OR TWO THEN SHOWED NO INTEREST SO I STOPED AND THEN STARTED BACK A FEW MONTHS LATER AND HE'S BEEN PEEING INTHE POTTY SINCE HE WAS 22 MONTHS. WE HAVE HAD NO SUCESS WITH POOPING BUT I DON'T THINK IT'S BECAUSE I STOPPED AND STARTED BACK.
