Just remember to keep it lighthearted and positive especially at this age. I had a friend who told her 16 month old that now they were going to use the potty...little girl didn't do anything for 3 days. She just didn't understand what was needed. The mom understood that the girl was too young yet and when they tried it again around 24 months baby only missed 3 times and never had any other problems.

i found it so different between my daughter (8) and my son(5). she demanded a potty at about 18/20 months. she was trained in about 3 weeks and i can take no credit for it. it was like she knew just what to do. my son however took around three months to get him going properly. if she is able to communicate the need to go potty in any way then there is no harm in buying one, giving her some privacy and see what happens. nicole used to come with me every time i went, so get used to not going on your own any more!!!

never to early to introduce them to the potty training idea :). But don't get discouraged if she doesnt take to it right away.. every kid is different and it will happen when she is ready :)

you can do as dolores suggested but i'd really wait till summer to really get started, so much easier to let her run around without a nappy

children usually don't have control until around 18 months but you can always start sitting her on the potty so she's not scared of it. we did that with my son and he was trained when he was just over two. potty traing is a fustrating thing so stay positive, and in my opinion when it comes to potty training, bribery is ok...lol
