My son turned 2 on the 3rd of January, and we've been potty training for about a month now and he's doing really well! He's passed a couple of solids on the potty and his weeing is going well, he wears pants all morning and he's got down to having just 1 or 2 accidents every so often. I am really proud of him, he's really doing well but I have a "friend" who tells me that my son is a late developer since I've only just started potty training and she's been really quite nasty about it! On all the advice I've read it says start between 18-24 months (which I did) and this woman made me really angry! She doesnt even have kids of her own, this all comes from baby sitting her nieces and nephews every so often! I waited until my son was ready, he tells me when he needs the toilet or when he's had an accident! I suppose I'm just looking for reasurance that I'm not doing anything wrong since this is my first child and first expierence with potty training! Sorry for the mini rant!

I think it's a little ridiculous that your friend is giving you advice on kids when she doesn't even have any. People like that drive me nuts. As far as your son potty training, it sounds like he's doing really well and I wouldn't worry about if he's considered a "late bloomer" or not. Kids will do things when they are ready, like walking and talking. My son wasn't completely potty trained until he was 2 and a half, and it literally happened over night. All kids are different. My friends kid is almost 3 and he hasn't even started yet, I wouldn't worry about it.

I thought the same thing. I feel completely fine now though, I was just extremely annoyed when I read it! So thank you for putting my mind at ease!
