What age did you start potty training? Dd is 1 and I'm starting today. I know it will take awhile for her to actually get it but how long did it take for your lo to get it down?

My daughter started practicing at 16 months. She is now peeing and pooping on the potty at 20 months old. She still has accidents so not fully trained.

DD is 18 months and she can tell me when she needs to go but most of the time she tells me just after she has gone. we are still working on it

Zaida has gone in spurts. She had a great run around fifteen months then we have tried off and on since then and she just turned two a few weeks ago and it seems we are finally toward the end this time.

12 months. Im going to do what my mom did with me. She started when I was 12 months and said she took me with in 15 min after drinking. I am just focusing on peeing right now. Apparently by 18 months I was fully trained. I am not holding my breath that dd will get it within 6 months though lol.

I really hope that isnt the case with us. I took dd earlier and she did use the potty I was shocked but I think I just got lucky

I think you should look into EC. That sounds more like what you will be doing, rather than actual potty training.



I did EC with my son starting at 6m old. I'd put him on the potty every morning, first thing and he almost always went. I didn't actually PT him until 23m though.

I have looked at that but from my understanding its signals they give and for peeing she doesnt give any signals. Unless i misunderstood the whole EC thing

well yes that does have to do with EC too, but you can do part-time EC. I could never tell any "signals" either, so, like I said, i just put him on every morning. If there are times you think your child is more likely to pee, like first thing in the morning or right after waking from a nap or 10-15 minutes after eating, etc., then just put them on the potty at those times, sing a little song or make up a sign (or you can look up the actual "potty" sign for sign language) and then put them back in a diaper .. or if they actually pee, you could try undies or a bare bottom (depending on the weather / temp in your house) for 10-20 minutes.
