i've started to put my 9 month old on the potty chair, and she pees on it every once in a while (mostly just right after naps) i read a little about infant potty training, and it showed that there are windows of opportunity when they might start to understand whats going on. personally, i would think that if shes not into it, dont push it. i wouldnt want to give her any hint of disappointment or negative reinforcement. maybe if shes not interested in potty training right now, take the time to read more about it, and see if you can find any other hints on how to potty train.

yeah, I have to agree, shes too young. they suggest you shouldnt start until after two years. they dont really have the understanding to learn this young.
but good on ya for giving it a shot, I would wait it out though, until she gives you signs that shes ready.

I would stop. If you force her then it will just make it harder... she is young to so they go in phases..... she will go when she wants to.
