31 months and we have days like that too, I cleaned up three puddles of pee the other day before switching out of the undies

My son is 27mos and he uses the potty now and then and wears the occasional pair of undies. I want to get started for real, but it never seems to be a good time. Last week my kids were starting school and I had appointments and things all week-this week he has had diarrhea-Maybe next week.

Mine is a late bloomer. She'll be three next month and is 75% there. Does great at home, but lots of misses out.

My daughter is 20 months old. She gave almost all the signs of being ready so I figured Iwould give it a try. It has taken two weeks but she is pretty much trained. Not completely by any means. She tells me when she has to go and goes in the potty. She hasn't had an accident in about 4 days. She has had "half" acidents, where she begins to pee then stops and gets me, but those are part of the process.

DS is almost 3 1/2. He has been pee pee trained for more than a year, poo potty trained (was too scared to go, made us put dipes on him) for a few months, and has JUST (like 2 nights ago) began the transition into undies at night and naps (when he takes them these days:banghead: )
DD is 21 months, has been in undies for almost a month now. She has maybe 1 accident per day and that is me forgetting to take her. She needs to be reminded half the time to go. When she does decide to go on her own I have to hurry and take her undies down cause she will sit on her potty, with undies on, and go:giggle2: . She is still wearing dipes at night and for naps but is waking up dry. I'm too nervous to put her in undies at night just yet, especially cause she sleeps with us and I'd like not to wake up with pee in my bed.

21 months and we've started several times in the past, but now have permanently stopped PLing. I just have a bad feeling that she's going to be a very VERY late bloomer.

DD is almost 21 months and is just starting to show signs of being ready. Several times now she had taken her diaper off and peed on the couch.

My dd is 2.5 and still not there.. I have her in waterproof trainers to get used to pulling up/down and the wet feeling but wetness doesnt bother her :( I think she got too used to it being in cloth, though I always change my kids frequently :headscratch:
Anyhow, we had a few days of success over the summer but she really just wont go on the potty for whatever reason so I'm not pushing. I'm thinking she'll be closer to 3 when she's ready :dunno:

DS is 30 months old and doing fantastic during the day. Since before 3 can be early for boys (or so I've been told/heard) I don't expect the nighttime diapers to stop for a while, but we're okay with that. Sometimes he wakes up dry, others not. But he is in panties all throughout the day with 0-1 accidents a day. Still working on it, but getting there! :)

My DS is 16 months and loves to sit on the potty, but only goes in it about once a day. The little boy that I watch is 33 months and pretty much finished PLing ( although he still wears a pull up at night). I do not think that it is ever to early to start. You just have to match the age with your expectations ( my 16 mo old is praticing whereas the 33 mo old is actually doing it) If you start even just once a day when they are young, you will not have the traumatic PLing experience that some kids have when they wait until 3 or 4 to start. And in reality, the ability to control the bowels and bladder are actually complete by 24 months but since we train our kids to go in the diaper, it takes practice to relearn how to control them.

dd1 was 15 when she decided no more dipes...but completly out of day dipe by 2 -- night dipes back in july when she turned 3 *was a sposie kid until she was 2*
dd2 is 15 months and uses the potty more than a diaper / trainer and often wakes up dry in the am even after nursing all night.
**my ex hubs uses sposies on her 2 days a week during his 2 hr visit IF he changes her at all but she gets only cloth with me*

DS started showing interest around 19 months and was completely PL'd at 27 months, except for night time. He's now 30 months and is starting to wake up wanting to go "peepee in the potty" in the middle of the night!

My DS is 21 months. He's been showing signs of readiness for awhile and we just introduced it gradually until about a week ago. Then we did 3 days of undies only which was a disaster so then I thought he wasn't as ready as we'd thought he was and put him back in diapers and nobody said the word "potty" for three days. Then the next day I decided I'd try one time in the morning and he went on the potty (first time) and was only wet twice and that was when I should have taken him and didn't. The next day he was dry all day. We still put him in a diaper for naps/night. The next day (today!) he pooped in the potty for the first time right before his nap so I put him down in undies. We'll still do a diaper at night for a little while though. I'm totally excited though! :)

my DD is 19months and is just starting... I wasn't planning on PL this early, but she really wants to, so who am I to say no ;)
