Hey guys,

I'm new here, but I thought I'd get your advice on potty training my one year old daughter. I potty-trained my oldest daughter at 12 months, and now she's 9. I started potty training her and getting her use to the potty at 10 month because she was ready.
But my 12 month old, doesn't appear to care too much about the potty or wearing "big girl panties" LOL. I am introducing her to the potty daily for 3 times a day. Once when she wakes up in the morning, once after her nap, and another time just during the day. I'll keep you guys posted on the results.

Honestly, she doesn't seem too interested but I let her play with a toy, or my tablet while she sits to keep her entertained.

She does not seem too interested because she is not ready. My honest opinion is to stop and not work on potty training her until she does show interest, otherwise you are going to have a LONG and FRUSTRATING road ahead of you. Let her be 1 yrs old....when she is ready she will show you signs. Let it be her accomplishment and NOT YOURS! When she is 9 yrs old no one is going to care when she potty trained.....no one is going to know what age she potty trained at 9 yrs old unless you are still talking about it to them. All kids train when they are ready to train.....just like all kids walk when they are ready to walk. No one cares if someone's child walked at 7 months and someone else's child walked at 18 months.....by time they are 3 yrs old you can't tell who walked first.
