I know a woman who started at three months and her 9 month old uses it! Never too early! Diapers are NOT natural!

Good luck!

My mom had me potty trained at 14 months. I had my son potty trained right at 2 yrs. But if I knew that he was going to be so easy I would have done it sooner.

My son is 17 months and he shows interest in his potty chair and always follows us to the restroom. I haven't 'officially' started yet because I feel he needs to learn to communicate a little more so he can verbalize what he needs. He does know how to sign 'change' when he needs a diaper change or if we ask him if he made 'stinkies'. So for us it's a start.

My son started to potty at 14 months and still is (now 16 months). He just isn't consistant about it. Like your son Diamond, mine will go if I sit him on it but he can't tell me he has to go.

Thanks everyone...the advice was really helpful. I decided to start and he has been using the potty...the only thing is he doesn't talk much yet so he doesn't say when he has to go, but when i sit him o hit he usually goes.

I would say if your child is enjoying it and interested then it isn't too early. I know people who have done it that early. I waited a little longer until my daughter began asking to go alot to "potty train" at 22 months and since she was the one who really wanted to do it she has done so good! She cheers and says "Hurray, I did it!" after each time" :) As long as you keep it fun and something they want to do (and it won't stress you out if they don't "get it" right away) than you can start whenever you want!

no. I started my daughter on the potty at nine months with her diaper on. by a year old she would pee in the potty if we told her to "make water." it helped to sit her on it when we used the restroom. she still does it, but we aren't as consistent with it.
