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.

What age is good fot potty training?

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.
