    Default Are these signs she's ready to start?

    Hi there

    I have a bright little 21 month old toddler girl who has started to come into the toilet with me when I'm home (I work full time).

    She knows where to go when I say toilet knows what wee wee and poopy means. She also helpfully hands me toilet paper when I need it

    This morning she squatted down on the ground when I was in there.

    Is this a sign? Would it be too early to just put a potty in there and take her when I go?

    My son took 3 years to train from start to end so I'm not to concerned about pushing to matter. It's just he is 8 now so I have forgotten alot.

    Thanks!!

    I'd give it a go but if it becomes stressful then leave it and try again in a few months. I find generally the older they are the quicker they pick up. Toilet training should be relatively easy if they are truly ready. I didn't really bother with a potty just went straight to the toilet with one of those step seat things. Otherwise then u have to transition from potty to toilet later. Good luck!

    3 of my kids showed interest like that around this age and all those times I was too busy or stressed out to do anything about it.

    I would give it a relaxed try for sure. Can't hurt.

    My daughter trained about that age and did well. She's now 3.5 and had 10589 regressions. I didn't get a choice as she was taking off her nappy and laying a turd down where ever she was. If I had a choice I would have waited.

    My daughter was fully trained at 21 months (led completely by her). You could give it a go.

    I would give it a go. My dd was 18 months and started showing signs unfortunatly daycare ruined all progress and it didnt happen until she was 2.5 yrs
    Ds walked out at 2.5 wearing undies ready to give it a go.
    As long as you are relaxed and dont force it she should hopefully pick it up quick.

    Thank you everyone! Yes I am definitely relaxed about it so I'll give it a go. But the daycare comment is right as mine us there 4 days a week and I dont want to force it with them either. I'll just buy a potty tomorrow and take it from there

    The daycare my dd was at, had very unhelpful staff but the new daycare ds is at is fantastic and he rarely has accidents there. All depends on the staff, hopefully they are fantastic and willing to help out

    I reckon they will be good but I'm conscious about her being there 4 days and fairly certain they wont bother unless it's clear she is ready.

    I don't mind either way I dont want it to be at all stressful but I also dont want to miss any signs.

    Her nappy rash gets really bad so taking her out of them would be awesome.
