Has anyone else had this happen?
Is 20 months too early to start potty-training? I don't want to push it, but he has started to inform me when he has a dirty diaper or is about to poop. At first I thought it was a fluke, but its been almost every time now for the last two weeks.
Thanks I'll check the book out. I'm not anticipating he'll get it right away or anything. I was just hoping it wouldn't be too discouraging at this age if he is confused, but maybe you're right and it will be less scary later.
we started sitting on the potty around 18 months ish. I'd put him on his potty when i knew he would have to go and then we'd sit there and read a book for a while. If he pottied, GREAT! If he didn't oh well, we just went on with our day.
At 2 he refused to let me put a diaper on him, while we were out going to Costco. I was SOOO nervous, but he did great and we had a few accidents, but not many and that was that.
I'd just keep on doing what you're doing. Sounds like you are following his cues and letting him lead this adventure.
