I've started some of my children from newborn because they have body signals. The ones I used this method on were potty trained earlier.

Ever notice African babies do not wear diapers? That's the reason, their moms observe and listen to their babies' body signals. I can't say I ever got it quite like them but I was intrigued enough to try.


Whatever you do don't force it. Babies will potty train when they are ready, sometimes that means 2 years old and sometimes that means 3 years old. I have had all mine potty trained by their 4th birthday. Use rewards for going on the potty and have patience, it'll take some time for the baby to get use to going on the potty.
