I know one thing, don't listen to anyone who tells you that once you move them out of diapers not to go back. If a child is not physically ready you are wasting both of you and your childs time and patience, if a child is not mentally ready, you are in for a battle that will only make you both angry and stubborn.

Research indicates 29 months is the best age on average, and that's what I've found after potty-training a dozen kids. Prior to that, at 2 you should start moving everything into the bathroom, diaper changing, etc., letting them sit on the potty if they show interest, letting them watch family members go and describing all the steps. Keep it low key. A child has to DECIDE to become potty trained, and once they make that decision, it's pretty instantaneous. Don't make it into a battle. It only delays the process.

I SAY YOU CAN START AT THE AGE 1 CAUSE THE EARLIER THE BETTER AND IT DEPENDS ON HOW FAST OF A LEARNER YOUR BABY IS. I HAVE 3 BOYS AND THEY SAY THE GIRLS LEARN FASTER THAN THE BOYS. BUT I HAVE THREE BOYS AND THEY ALL STARTED AT THE AGE OF 1

I started mine at two, they were both giving me all the signs of being ready. They started taking off the diaper all the time, asking about the potty, and trying to get on it.

HI, NOT EVERY CHILD IS THE SAME. I STARTED TEACHING MY CHILDREN ABOUT A POTTY AS SOON AS THEY COULD SIT ON THEIR OWN. BY THE TIME THEIR WERE WALKING IT WAS EASY TO SIT THEM AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO USE IT.

The age 2 always worked for me. But of coarse they have to be ready. If you see the little steps that they are ready, go for it.
