my son keeps taking off his pamper when he uses it, he is 15 months and im wondering if he's too young to start potty training or if it is a good age?

I would think as long as you don't push him about it will be fine my son was ready about 18 months, now my daughter is 27 months and we are still working on it.

I would say if he is showing interest then that is great and you should follow his lead. Don't push him to do it though if he doesn't want to. When they are ready they will learn so much faster than those who are pressured all the time.

My hubby started TJ at 1yr. after he started walking. TJ would take his pamper off also when soiled. Everytime hubby went to potty he took TJ with him. It was easy because he wanted to do what dad did. TJ had it down pat by the time he was 1 1/2 yr. old. Of course hubby said that I was training him wrong. I grew up with girls, so I didn't know. He even taught him how to go with out touching himself by 3yrs. old. So I fuss about not washing his hands. TJ always says, "He doesn't use his hands so why wash". It's always something with the kids, right. LOL!!!!! I think it's never too early. I asked my mom, and she said that all 3 of her girls were potty trained at one to one and half. Back then we wore cloth diapers & rubber pants. YES. LOL!!!!!!

My son use to do that when he was that age. I think that it just feels good to take the wet one off and go free!! LOL! I don't ever think that it is too early if they are showing intrest!

Girl I started potty training my older two girls at about the same time..And honestly if we was around the house and had no company, I let them run around naked. My oldest little girl is fixing to be 4 and before age two she was potty trained. She even woke up in the middle of the night and used it. Also my old man told me to tell you to try throwing cheerios in the potty and tell him to aiml. It makes it fun. He says it didn't take him long to potty train like that cause he wanted to go "play the cheerios game"

I agree with the others.

I wont hurt to introduce the potty to him,but don't push the issue with him.

He will go in all in good time.

If he trains before he is 2,kudos to you mom.

every child is different, typically they start a little older, but i see no harm in introducing the potty and seeing what he thinks. 2 really important things a child needs to be able to do inorder to start training are walking and communicating, he needs to be able to tell you when he wants to sit on the potty and he needs to be able to get there on his own. just remember, if you decide to start and he is not ready, it will drag out and make for a very long struggle. good luck!

my daughter did that also at the age but I do think its too young to potty train. How about putting him in pull ups? Some pull ups don't have velcro on the sides.. they are more like underwear so maybe he'll have a harder time getting them off.

I would say he is at least heading in that direction but I wouldn't try to make a big deal pushing the potty training yet he is pretty young. All kids are different but it would be worth a try to start encouraging him to go and if he ends up trained yay for you but I wouldn't get to discouraged if he goes one day and not the next it will all come with good time :)
