Potty Training

My daughter is almost 16 months old, she walks really well and has reached the milestones for her age. At what age should i start potty training and how should i go about doing this. I would appreciate some help.

She is too young for you to be thinking about potty training. Wait until she is at least 2 years old. There is lots of information about potty training available.

Hi

I am not an expert but the general age is from 18 to 24 months. your little one should be giving you signs that she is ready before you even start. If she is not ready and you enforce it, it will just take longer. Also you have to be ready as well.
there are lots of parenting webites out there that have some very useful information - try babycentre co uk
