My son will be 2yo on September 1st. He will sit on the potty for a few seconds. He takes his diaper off. He will go to the restroom and try and open the door if you tell him it is time to go potty. He does talk. He can take his clothes off and we are working on learning how to put them back on.
We tried at 2 1/2 with DS. But he would do great for a couple weeks then revert back. So I quit after a couple months of back and forth. The day before his third Bday he got up from his nap and took it upon his self to go to the potty. He's been going ever since. He wore a diaper to bed for the first month then I went to try to put on on him and he tol me " no, big boys wear undies" he gets up 2x a night to use the bathroom and he's been completely pottery trained for 7 months. My dd tells me she wants to wear underwear, & she always tells me she has to pee but she tells me to late. We are working on it. She's 2 and 1/2. Good luck :-)

My daughter only says a few words now. And I've put her on the potty and she just wants to jump off. So I'm going to wait. I hate feeling pressured by other people to do this and that. My daughter is perfect at the rate she's growing and developing now so thank you for your advice everyone! It helps a lot!
Connor turned 2 in May and we haven't really started yet. He has no interest in it whatsoever. We have a little froggy potty out that I tell him to sit on when he has to go potty. For now, I'm just trying to get him to tell me when he's actually going pee pee or poop, we'll start there!
Great question! We just potty trained 2 weeks ago, at 2.5. We've had a potty for over a year and Allison would sit on it before a bath or if she went with me to the bathroom but no pushing. Two weeks ago, she had a rash that needed to air out. I took off her diaper and told her that she needed to tell me when she has to go potty because her bottom needed air. She was diaper free all that day (and peed/pooped in the potty with no accidents), the next day I decided to try panties, she wore them and peed in the potty but pooped in the panties and asked to go naked at home. I let her stay naked when we were at home and she wore panties out. We had a few accidents in the first week but nothing in close to a week!
We've been trying and trying... Avery likes to sit on the potty, but only if you're right there with her. She will read books, sing songs, etc. But then I'll take her off her potty (with no actual pee or poop) and put her in panties, then 2 minutes later she'll have an accident. It's so frustrating.
Started potty training my son at 23 months. The week he turned 2 he was pee potty trained. #2 took a little longer. He started going for a week, and then would refuse to go and would hold it in, to the point where he went 4 days without a BM, and I had to give him an enema. His pediatrician told me to back off potty training for a while, and then casually start asking him if he wanted to try on the potty. I did for a while, then started offering him M&Ms if he went on the potty. That worked. So he was about 2 1/2 by the time he was fully potty trained.
I've been curious about this as well. Our pediatrician told us at her 18 month check up that we needed to get her a potty and start introducing her to it. She is 20 months now and she tells us when she is wet or says "poo poo" so I am going to start sitting her on it and see what happens.
My daughter is 20 months now. I started training her at about 19 months. I wasnt sure if she was ready or not so I just tried it and it worked. I think I did it wrong though. I had her just wander the house naked for a couple days so when she had to go she wouldnt have to worry about panties being in the way. Now she will go sit on the potty by herself everytime but if I put panties on her she wont take them off. She will sit on the potty and pee right through them as if she isnt wearing them. Not so sure what to do now...
