I plan to start at 18 months...right now he is 12 months.
My two year old is nearly completely trained. He just wears a diaper at night. At thirteen months, he would pee in his diaper, then rip it off when he was finished and throw it across the room! Lol! : ) Potty training him was easy. He even pees standing up, when given a chance. : ) I don't think one year is too early, if the child is interested. Just keep it informal and just put baby on the potty regularly. : )
Mine were all PT'd by age 2:
Lexie was 16mosKiki was 18mosSarah was 19mos

I don't potty train. I wait for signs of them being ready and follow there lead. With both my first two. We thought they were ready and they were not. So back to diapers. Then the second time they wanted to. They were ready. Both my girls were 3 years and some months old.
My 2 year old likes to sit on the potty from time to time. So we let her. But she is no where ready for me to just take her diaper away.
