I personally feel that your child will give you hints as to when she is ready to start pottytraining. What are your feelings on the subject?

I start potty training on there 1st birthday. The sooner the better! I hate seeing 3 and 4 yr olds in diapper. I feel that after age 2 the parents are just being lazy! Back in the 50's they use to start potty training at 3-4 months and now parents are wanting untill there 3-4 yrs. I'm sorry but thats just nasty!

I agree wholeheartedly. If you push them it will take longer. I am trying to make it a fun experience for my daughter. I noticed a month ago she would come to me and tell me that she had gone "beep". Then about a week ago she started to tell me before she had one. We bought her a potty on grocey day last week and i hope that these signs mean that it will go easily for me. Most of my girlfriends think that I am crazy because Becky will be 18 months tomorrow and they think that I am deluding myself into thinking that she is ready. I am making up a sticker board for her tonght to show her progress (she will get a sticker on the board everytime she goes potty! Does anyone have any other tips and hints?

I feel the same way as well. My son started to say potty and one day ran to the bathroom. Since then he has been using it when he wants to (not all the time like I really wish he should) but some days he uses it and then some days he just wont. so it's for right now one step forwards and two steps back. is there a way I can get him to go potty all the time?

My daughter was amazing. She took to potty training like a duck to water, in fact she skipped the potty and went straight to the toilet lol. Nighttime was her decision. She came up to me one day and said she didn't want a nappy anymore and hasn't looked back.
With my sons I noticed their nappies were drier than usual and, with a lot of encouragement and praise, began to toilet train. Once they started they didn't stop.
