What age should I start to potty train my daughter....She's 1?

What age should I start to potty train my daughter....She's 1?

Signs of readiness: are being able to walk from room to room, pull diaper, pull-pants up & down, be dry for 2 hours, say "potty" or other word to indicate she senses the urge to go. Between 18 mos.-3 yrs., let her sit on a potty, clothed, while you model using the toilet. Pushing it creates behavior problems. Buy a Little Looster stool.
