My daughter is 17 months old and VERY bright for her age. She's been showing an interest in the bathroom for the past few months, so I bought her a potty chair. She knows when she does her business. She gets my attention by patting her diaper (if she's pooped, she says "eeeew") and I know it's time for a diaper change. I think she's ready, but my mom says I'm starting her on the potty training path too soon. Should I wait a little while longer, until she understands the concept? Or is it okay to begin now, while she's showing interest?
