My daughter is 1 1/2 is that to early to start potty training. We started my son when he was 2 and he did great. Either way any advice on potty training a little girl would be great! Thank you!

Depends on child.

When they are too young to have bladder or bowel control. I let control of these be the guide for deciding when to train my children.

Is she showing signs of being ready? My son trained at 2 and he took to it right away. He was showing signs by 18-19 months.

Just when they're ready.

She just started taking her diaper off! My son did that and we started training him and he did well but just wasn't sure if it was to soon.

In my opinion, under 2 years is too early. I think it just takes longer to train when you start that early.

i think as long as they are showing an interest in it go ahead and start doesn't matter how old they are..if they like they idea now do it now!!

I started my boys at 2.5. Realistically they didn't catch on till around 3.5 close to 4. Nighttime is another story. They all wet the bed including my older two who are 10 and 8 (Hereditary Condition). Goodluck...

My 15 m.o is doing really well, I didn't really mean to start that early but it's working so we're running with it!

I have no advice, I'm totally winging it.
