Wondering if you can start potty training your toddler? All children develop differently and are ready for toilet training at different times. While potty training at 12-13 months is usually too early in most cases, some children do train as early as 18 months. Most are trained by age 3.
The key is readiness. If a child isn’t ready, potty training can be very frustrating for both of you.
A child may be ready if:
- She is telling you in her own way that she needs to go to the bathroom.
- He can pull his underpants up and down.
- She can sit and stand well.
- He can sleep through the night without soiling a diaper or get through a nap without wetting a diaper.
