You will get some responses about EC and/or early potty training, but personally... I'm a huge fan of child led potty training.

I'm sorry but in my opinion that is far too young to potty train. Bowel and bladder control is a necessary skill and at 7.5 months of age she doesn’t have that skill. Children younger than 12 months have no control over bladder or bowel movements and little control for 6 months or so after that. Between 18 and 24 months, children often start to show signs of being ready, but some children may not be ready until 30 months or older. Our son was potty trained at 2.5 but that was because he let us know he was ready and trained himself. Why rush it?
