Most children are between 22 and 30 months of age when they are ready to be toilet trained, although every child is different. Toilet training can be a long and frustrating process if you insist on trying before your child is read.
Before children can be trained, they must be able to control their bowel and bladder muscles. If they are having bowel movements around the same time each day, not having bowel movements at night, and having a dry diaper after a nap or for at least 2 hours at a time, they may be ready. have mastered other basic motor skills and talk before they can use the toilet by themselves.
Your child's toilet training experience should be a positive one. If you find it a battle it is best to ease up or stop for a while. Although you may be ready for toilet training, your child may not be.
