some people put their kid on every 15, 30, 60 min whatever.

I've yet to actually potty train.
I start by introducing it, and explaining what I am doing when I go, since all three of my kids have liked to follow me in. Once they start appearing to understand I started asking them how to go, "Mommy had to go pee/poo. Can you show me how?" And within a few months both boys got it. Both were pee trained first during the day, the night, then poop trained, all on their own, on their own terms. with both I had told them they needed to poo on it (not until they were 100% pee trained though...) And Thomas told us he would when he was three, and sure enough the day of his 3rd bday party he started pooping on the potty, and stopped in his underwear. Collin the same thing pretty much, just one day stopped doing it in his pants.

I'm hoping for the same success w Bailey.
