My Son is 14 months...

he is always taking his diaper off.. especially if he "poops"

im thinking its almost time to potty train...

he cant talk yet so therefore he cant tell me if he has to go.

so i dont know.

I wouldn't even bother. both my kids treated them like diapers. :( It was a big waste of money. If you're ready to potty train, go straight for the underwear! Well, that's my opinion. :) Good luck!

once the girls could stand sturdily I used pull ups during the day just because they are easier for getting on and off (only if they are only wet mind). for potty training went straight to knickers (buy tonnes!!)

My 16 month old daughter wears them when we are at home and i take her to "potty" every 30-45 minutes. She wears normal diapers at nap time and at night. we started this at about 11 months. when she starts letting me know when she has to go, i'll switch her to underwear at home and pull ups when we are out. she likes to pee on the potty, and the pull ups are easier to take on and off than undoing the diaper every time.

my daughter *2* wears pulls up when we are out and about, but when we're home she's got on underwear. She's pretty much potty trained but if there isn't a potty in here eyesight she'll just pee on herself, for some reason she wont say potty, she just runs and goes on her own.

My oldest son started wearing pull ups at about 18m because he was constantly taking his diaper off!!! For what ever reason he was fine with the pull ups. We didn't potty train for another 6ms though! I have another friend whose son is 28ms and won't wear pull ups because it upsets him to get the picture wet! She is probably going to have to go strait to underware. Some kids won't potty train in a pull up, I've known several who would request pull ups so they could do thier buisness. I've known several who treated the pull ups like underware and potty trained great using them. FYI most daycares don't want kids in pull ups when potty training and places like gyms or kids programs do count pull ups as diapers, and consider children wearing then not potty trained. So as unhelpful as the answer probably is you sort of have to feel out you, your child, and what's going on in your lives to really get an answer. :-)

Whenever they show an interest in potty training. Or when they're old enough (2-3 years old), and you're sick of changing diapers, lol.
