How old were your boys when you started introducing them to the potty? My son is 15mo and he is fascinated by the potty but only because he wants to play in the water.

DS is 2 and he has already used the potty. He wants to be like big Bro.  Big bro was 3 before he was trained though.

 Around age 2, but he wasn't potty trained until 3 1/2. We tried a few times, but he really wasn't interested and I decided I wasn't going to turn it into a battle. The summer before he started preschool, I sat him down, picked out a day on the calendar and told him, "On this day, no more diapers!" As the approached, I would remind him it was coming. We had cool underwear ready for the big day. Once the day came, he was totally ready to do it.

somewhere between 18-24 months.   we got him a small potty and he would sit on it before his bath.  sometimes he would potty - other times not.   we didn't really push it since he really wasn't showing any signs that he was ready to potty train.     we just wanted him to get used to it for when the time came.    he was fully potty trained at 33 months.

Do you have a BOY??   If so, come join us at RAISING BOYS!  It's a great group for mothers of boys of any age!  Hope to see you there!!   http://www.cafemom.com/group/336/
