Depends on the child: Most kids get interested in the potty around 18 mo. & train by 2 yrs. If their parents start taking them along every time the parents use the toilet. Put the kiddy potty on the bathroom floor so that your child can sit on it while you use the regular one. Start your child with clothes on;after a few days, go to just diaper, then, when your child's ready, to bare-bottom. Lots of praise & rewards help! ...Read more

Whats the normal age to start potty training my son? He's 19months old now and i feel like he should be potty trained?

Around 2: Most kids train around their second birthday. However, with any developmental milestone, age varies from child to child. You should not "expect" him to be trained by now, nor can he sing the national anthem yet. But he may be showing signs of interest, and then it's ok to start working with him. Many toddlers show some initial interest and then back away. Be patient and work with them, not against. ...Read more

A toddler who walks: from room to room, pulls his/her pants & pull-up or underpants up & down & says " pee-pee", "poo-poo" or "potty" to indicate he 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. ...Read more

My uncut son is potty training now, but my husband is cut. Does it make a difference?

My uncut son is potty training now, but my husband is cut. Does it make a difference?

No!: The foreskin should not change the way a male pees. I do suggest if any son watches his father pee, have dad sit on the toilet. That way he can do it like dad, sitting down, until he's old enough to aim! the biggest difference if his foreskin remains is you need to pull gently back and clean it daily, then teach him to do the same as he gets older. Don't force it if it doesn't pull easily! ...Read more
