potty training?

I'm thinking of starting to potty train soon I have read some things on how too's helped potty train other children. Just wondering when other people are thinking of potty training.  My goal is that she is potty trained before she is 2 because we are starting to try for another one and I don't want 2 in diapers at the same time. Thoughts?

Re: potty training?

  • Find an online readiness quiz and be objective as possible. Start as soon as possible after 18months if your child has enough signs of readiness.

    Our goal is to be done by 2 as well. It is way easier to get this milestone taken care of before t

  • We are waiting until closer to 2 but hope to be done before 2.5yrs so DD can start preschool. She has to be pottytrained to be accepted.

  • We started putting ds on the potty right before bath, or any time I knew he was pooping since he was 9 months old. Of course, he didn't know what he was doing, but we still made a big deal about it and got him comfortable with the toilet. We used the seat

  • I have heard time and time again that there is a window, before the second birthday where it is far easier than waiting until 2.5 or older (like many do), or until their "ready." 

    We cloth diaper, so for convenience, I started putting DS on

  • I think we will wait a bit. We have a big trip to Germany coming up in August and after that we will start to introduce him to the toilet. I bought one of those seats that goes onto the toilet and sat him on it, but he got scared and wanted off. <

  • Our DC doesn't have potties in the room until they are 2 and almost all of the kids are PT within the first week or two of moving to the 2 year old room.  So, we're waiting until then and letting DC do most of the hard work for us. :)  I just do

  • Wow.  I hadn't even thought about it yet!  I guess we're behind.

    With DD we introduced the potty around 18 months, but it was more of a novelty than anything else.  And she SLOWLY...took to it.  We didn't really push it.&nbs
