I've never had any problems with my MIL but now that I'm a mom it seems different.

I think now is reallly very young! they dont grasp it at all. I started toben when he was 3 months from being 3 and I think that was good timing for us. I know every child is different but I would wait until they show signs of being ready, like Toben was asking questions and watching dadd, excited to pick out his own chonies that looked like daddyy ... pushing something so big on them so early can cause them to regress later..

I would love it if Chloe go potty in a little potty chair but I just don't see it even being possible right now. She just doesn't seem to be at that level of thinking yet, KWIM? There's a girl I work with that has

oh goodness PT at 1? that would be AMAZING! but im a SAHM and i dont even have the time no the patience to do that..... 18 months is my starting goal is by 2 to be out of diapers. MY personal opinion is that if your kid is 2 yo or older and still in diapers....its ridiculous! i mean 2.5 maybe...... its understandable when both parents are working but anything over that.... its

I don't think 2 or 2.5 is that out of line Stacia. My sister and parents kinda HAD to start PTing my nephew because he was almost out of the diaper sizes available, lol, and I think they started around 2.
Kira's not even walking yet so that's def not on our radar, and I'm not gonna push it on her until she starts showing signs of being ready.

Stachia 2 is still very little! like I said earlier every child is different, but its completly normal and ok for a child to be in diapers until age 3...

My whole family are early potty training, i grew up with every kid in my fam out of diapers on or before 2 years old. (with the exception of my nephew who was 2.5 and my cousins daughter who was 2.5) they were very capable just didnt want to do it. My mother has a certificate in potty training no joke. she is a potty training specialist, the main reason is cause she was a Habilitation
