Didn't want two in diapers, thought he was ready, excited for the milestone and tired of changing diapers lol I was planning on training around 18 months though even if I hadn't been pregnant based on everything I found and read and I was ready to fully commit to the process. I really feel that it's a great age to start! He hadn't shown any of the classic "signs" of being ready but it still worked out, so I really feel like it was the right thing to do (at least for him and our family.)

for Sam, I put other because nothing really fit. It was just time. We'd been at it for a while.....he was age ready, just not developmentally ready. It was a LOOOOOOOOOOOONG process for us. Seriously two years in the making due to so many different caregivers, a big move, birth of a baby, a full day school program, then half day program.

For Henry, he's just 21 months and only shows interest in playing in the toilet. After I get him talking, I'll try, but not til the kid says a word.

I think it's time. I've been a bit lapsed and inconsistent but she's been showing signs. I just need to kick into high gear and be more consistent. Plus it's a huge expense. She's turning 2, is very vocal and tells you when she's gone and needs a diaper change so it's time for me to act.

Thank you Helen for my beautiful siggy!

I'm probably the odd-ball here, but I chose 3 answers.... to avoid having two in diapers, to save $$, and because I am tired of changing diapers......

My step-daughter will be 3 years old on January 16th; she is a very "babied" child who developmentally is just over 2 years old and language is at about 22 months developmentally (this stems from her environment before I entered her life). She did not show any of the typical signs that you look for when beginning potty training. Seriously, I was just tired of changing poopy diapers coming from a child who eats the same food that I do and produces the same poop that I do.
And I was 24 weeks pregnant when I PT'd her.

That being said, it took 3 days to PT and she is doing amazing with it so the right choice was definitely made.
