Head to the Elimination Communication subforum on the Diapering forum. There are many babies who are "potty learned" that young mainly because their parents ensure that they stay in touch with their elimination needs and cues from the start.
my dad says I learned at the same time as my older sister, who was almost 2.5. that would have made me just under a year old. He said from that point i never soiled a diaper, though he kept me in them at night for about a year, they were always dry.
my daughter was finished around 2 years old, we started at 6 months with EC.
My mom told me I was potty trained by 12 months -- she didn't force it, I just was a very anal child apparently and didn't like sitting in my own poop.
Our toddler's 14 months and we've got a potty for her and she sits on it sometimes, and pooped in it once, but we're in no rush, so whenever she's ready, we'll work on it. But I think having it there for them to be accustomed to is fine at an early age.
According to my exMIL both of her girls were completely potty-trained before they turned a year old and before they were walking, and apparently the fact that my kids were not makes me a horrible mother.
DS uses the potty 99% of the time. He has not had a night accident since about 12mo. He is 18.5mo now, but I would say he has been pretty much "trained" since he was about 16mo. He has even taken his doll to the potty!
We have been doing EC since he was about 2 weeks old.
My mom claims I was potty trained at 11mo, but I don't believe her.
My sister-in-law (who is now 20 years old) potty-learned on her first birthday on her own. She got new underwear as a birthday gift and peed in them as soon as they put them on her. She had a meltdown about getting her birthday clothes wet, and she used the potty from that day forward.
me was 8m all my brothers and my moms siblings were all potty trained before a year my dd was 3m i use to take her out in panties my ds is slower he is 80% done at 7m he has a few oohoh's (beter at night then in the day
Yep, the EC stories are great. We have been ECing from birth, but its been off with us. I guess I meant without EC. Amazing stories though. I'm really impressed. 16-month-old dd just started saying "poop." That's pretty exciting!!
My DD, Klara, is 16 mos and has been going pee on the potty whenever I take her for about a month. We use diapers almost all of the time, but when I go, she likes to go too We have a little potty on the floor and a seat that sits on the toilet, which she really likes. No pressure, I'm just making it available before we get in the shower, when I go to the bathroom and if she happens to NOT be wearing a diaper. I have to remind her that if she needs to go pee pee to go in the potty and watch her very closely so that she doesnt' pee on my carpet
I was around a year old, and so were my brother, sister, and niece. We were all semi- ec'd, though. DD started peeing on the potty at around 15 months (not walking yet!) and pooing at around 18 months. By 20 months she was mostly out of day time diapers.
