Too soon: If the kid shows some interest, get the hardware and show them how it works. But don't push it at this age.Only 25% are trained at 2, 75% at 3.
Dr. Johanna Fricke
Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics 50 years experience
A toddler who walks: from room to room, pulls his/her pants & pull-up or underpants down & says "pee-pee", "poo-poo" or potty to indicate he/she senses the urge to "go" is ready for daytime toilet training. If not, you may create a behavior problem . There's no harm in putting a potty chair in the bathroom for the child to sit on while you model using the toilet, but don't force the child to sit on it.
