i started right after he turned 2. it took a few months for him to really catch on, but by 2.5 he was fully potty trained. what finally worked for him was a potty chart where there were rows with 10 stickers each. everytime he went on he potty he got a sticker and after the row was filled he got to go to the store and pick out a toy. after 2 weeks with the chart he was all set.
i started him sitting down at first...but then he saw his dad standing up and didn't want to sit down anymore.
Quoting Anonymous:Sitting backwards makes it easier to transition into standing.

right around 2. I started him sitting until he was able to understand the idea.. then we switched to standing.
We had our son sit backwards on the potty for a while. He's less likely to fall in and aiming is a lot easier :)
I started him off sitting backwards on the potty. Then moved to standing on his stepstool in front.
He's three and still not tall enough to just walk up and stand there so he does this kind of spiderman leap onto the toilet....
He started out just sitting like he would for poop
setting all 3 of them on the big potty until they were big enough to tiptoe and reach.
First son I trained sitting, second son I trained standing. It didn't seem to make much of a difference.
