I need a little help potty training. I haven't had to do this in a while. My youngest is 22 month. She talks very well for her age, and can tell me when she has wet her diaper or when she had pooped. Do you think shed ready? Is it too soon?

P.s. My oldest is 4 and we started training her at 17 months and was potty trained by 2.5.

Stays dry for at least two hours.
Is dry after a nap.
Is uncomfortable in soiled diapers.
Shows increased interest in the bathroom.
Asks to use the toilet or potty chair.
Has regular and predictable bowel movements.
Asks to wear Big Kid or “grown up” underwear.
Uses words or body language when he or she needs to go.
Follows simple verbal directions.
Walks to and from the bathroom, able to undress his/herself.

If your child shows two or more of these signs, it’s a good indication that they’re ready to start potty training.

My son has had a potty since he was 1. He sits on his potty chair at least once a day. When he gets up in the morning and from naps, he sits on the big potty. Sometimes he pees. He's comfortable with it, so I hope when he's ready, it'll be easy. My daughter was potty trained by 18 months completely. I know he's not where she was mentally at 18 months. I would try it if I were you!

I agree 48th this as long as you don't force it. See how interested she is.

 I don't think she is too young. I would just get a potty chair and see how she does. This is what we did when my youngest started taking his diaper off at 18 months old. He potty trained pretty quick

It can't hurt to introduce it. I just wouldn't force it if she doesn't seem ready.
