I've gone through potty learning with more than just my kids, and as long as the kiddo is ready, it's a relatively smooth process. It's when they aren't ready and you begin, or proceed anyway that you usually run into problems.
Ditto. Ds1, in spite of his developmental delays, was a piece of cake to train: just before his 4th birthday he decided he wanted to wear underwear just like his best buddy; he up and trained himself and has been accident-free from Day 1.

Dd on the other hand... she started formally training at around 2.5 (we always kept a potty in the bathroom and introduced her to it early on), but she was totally not ready and had accidents several times a day for nearly a year. We used all of the usual motivators: charts, stickers, M&Ms... she just wasn't ready.

My son wasn't toilet trained until four, my daughter before she was two. I had this idea in my head with my son that he would start at 12 months. Boy was I wrong.
Nothing is better than being with your family. Finally reunited after 5 long months <3
