    My DD1 refused to put on a nappy at about 27months. I pushed her back about 4-5weeks though as she had just gone in to her big bed the week before and we were going interstate/holidays a couple of weeks later. So it would have been just before 2 1/2.

    DD2 is 22 months and not really interested. She loves her sister's knickers and I've put her on the toilet a couple of times, but she isn't ready yet.

    DD was 2years 8mths - I was hoping to delay it a little longer as we had a 6week old at the time, but she was definitely ready.

    My son is 3 and we are just starting. He's only recently shown signs of being ready...his language whilst great was slow to develop, and he now seems to have the sense of when he needs to go. I think it depends on the individual child.

    We tried DS at 25 months because we thought he was interested but he wasn't. Just ended up in screaming, crying and lots of accidents. So after a week we gave up. A month and a half later he decided he was ready.

    DS is now 2 years 7 months and we still have the odd accident. Also he still wears nappies at sleep time.
