potty training?

My son is 18 months old. He has shown an interest in the potty and likes to flush the big potty, but he doesnt consistently tell us when he has to go. It is rather accidental that he happens to go in the potty. He will tell his babysitter, but not us. Are we trying this too early? I only started because he was so interested and seemed ready.

Thanks in advance for the input.

If he is showing interest then no, I don't think you are starting too early. My daughter showed interest at about the same age but not long after she lost toot interest. She was on and off the potty for a good year! It's definitely to be expected that he would be inconsistent at this age though.

My little one is 3 and a half in December and is only just fully toilet trained, after about a year of trying. I guess it all depends on the child.
