It's a great time to introduce the concept of going on the potty but don't push it.  I only know two sets of b/g twins but in both sets the girl was finsihed with diapers about 6 months before the boy. I don't think this means that all girls are out of diapers boefore boys though, obviously.

Depends on the child really.  My son was easier to potty train than my daughter. She was afraid of the hole in the seat. Where as my grand daughter potty trained herself. Just one day, my daughter realized that she had been dry for a few days. She had been going by herself.  All were about 20 months old though.  I think closer to two is a better age though.  IMHO

Hi there,



I am a mom of three and pregnant with my fourth. There is no telling if girls, or boys are faster at potty training. It all depends on the child and when they are ready to go potty. Look for the signs that they are ready. Some things that I tried with my girls and my boy are peeing in a tin can(they love the sound). Eventually you move the can closer to the potty and then suggest putting cherios in the potty and let him hit them. He thinks its a game and it makes it fun for him to go potty. For my girls, I had a party with all thier dolls when they were done. If they went pee all by themselves, they got a party with one candy each. They were all fully potty trained before they turned two. Good luck!
