Your child may or may not be ready. If he or she is trying to remove their diaper, telling you when they have to go or have gone, or seem interested in the potty, your child may be ready.

I suggest putting your child on the potty fairly often and see how it goes. It is possible you may have to stop for a month or two and then try again, that's normal. Let your child run around naked from the waist down, use regular underwear, or diapers. I don't suggest pull ups because they have the same padding as diapers and are way more expensive. The padding for most children is a comfort thing.

You may want to try a reward system to help you along if you think you need it; offering Smarties or stickers every time your child goes could help things along. Good luck!
