Potty time!

Not sure if it's too early to start potty training but bought a toilet seat for my 13 mos old today. Any advice?

    My mom would just start taking us frequently and giving us lots to drink. I started a few early but the earliest mine were trained was 18 months. My mom had us trained by a year!

      13 months is probably a bit early, but you'll have it for when it's time to start!

      The best advice is to watch your little one for clues of readiness. Typically they show readiness in a backwards sort of way. They begin to notice afterwards that they need to be changed, then they start to notice during the act that something is going on down there and finally they start to show signs before elimination that they know it is about to happen. Somewhere between noticing during and noticing before hand is a good time to introduce the potty.

        I just trained my youngest and shes almost 20 months :-) It was surprisingly easy! My grandma said she had all 4 of hers trained by 1! But back then it was cloth diapers and a lot easier to train with fewer distractions. Good luck! I'd give the 3 day potty training method a try when your ready. It has worked for me with my kids

          Thanks for all the advice ladies; I'm a first timer so I appreciate it! I will wait on him to give me some clues and see what happens from there. I just hope he will not be the kid pulling off the pamper at odd times with surprises waiting on me around the house
