I don't know if this question was answered or not, but how do you know when your child is ready to start potty training?



My daughter is almost 20 months and I don't believe she is showing any signs towards wanting to potty train.



Any tips on how to start them out? What to look for? Any advice would be wonderful. :)

So Ellie follows me into the bathroom everytime I go (which is alot since Im 37 weeks preg.. lol) She sits on her potty (with cloths on) I give her a tiny peice of TP and she acts like she wipes.. lol Its to cute.. Then when I get up to flush she tosses her tp in the big toilet and wants to close the lid.. I cant wait to be able to really work with her on PTing.. Sometime between Spring and Summer we will get more serious about it. .

I haven't been on here for a LONG time, but I thought you ladies could help me with potty training. For a couple days he would tell me when he had to pee & every pee some of the pee he would go on the potty, there was a little in the diaper too, but then it seems like he is bored with it and goes in the diaper. He hasn't pooped in the potty yet. Im not pushing him. But id like to know if this is normal? he will be 2 in 3 weeks.
