Sometime around two years of age, your child will become ready for potty training. There are several factors that indicate readiness.

  1. The child must be physically ready. This involves maturity of the Potty Train Earlysphincter muscles. These muscles give control.
  2. The child must be able to communicate. Your child must be able to indicate the urgency to you. Even saying "peepee" or pointing to his diaper is sufficient.
  3. The child must be emotionally ready. Children show interest or readiness.

Studies have shown that children trained before 18 months of age may not be completely trained until the age of 4. While children trained at around age 2 train more quickly and fully trained by age 3.
