 I Would Have To Say He Is Telling You That He May Be Ready It Dont Hurt To Try It And See. Pooping In The Clean Clothes Made Him Think It Was A Potty Maybe LoL Good Luck.

If hes bringing you a diaper when he wants to be changed, i would say he's ready.

My daughter is fully vaccinated so yours doesn't have to be!

I think he's starting to tell you he's ready or at least that he is interested.  When my son 14 months old I started sitting him on the potty everytime I went potty just to get him used to the feel and the concept.  Maybe try doing that and see how it goes.  I would let him take the lead he's still young but if he's interested and starting to show signs of being ready than take advantage of that.

Huggies has a free potty training dvd that you can order.  I have not watched it yet since my son is not ready so I cant say how good or bad it is but hey it is free so worth a shot.

Hi:

 

Based on the fact that he brought you a diaper to change would let e know he is ready and capable to be Potty trained.  Around abot the times he brings me the diaper, I would say lets go potty around that time. if you know the time.  If you do not know the time, then pick times. I would do this consistently.  Hope this info helps.

HAHA - pooped in the laundry huh? GROSS! haha

15 mths is usually early to start potty training. But, sounds like he might be an early goer. Go for it!

Take him to the toilet every hour or two on the hour. Do not stray from this routine. Routine is the key. Let him see you, your hubby, siblings etc. go potty. When you guys do, make a huge deal out of it, clapping, horrays, etc. so that your little guy will know it's a fun important accomplishment. Then, of course, when he starts going on the potty, make it a huge deal, call everyone into the bathroom and clap and hoorays and give him a small treat each and everytime he goes. I used to give my little ones just one fruit snack (not the bag, just one), and two if they pooped. Worked like a charm!
