When to Start Potty (Toilet) Training Your Child: What Research Shows

Based on the results of five studies, we suggest that, for parents who want to start and finish potty training earlier, they can start as early as 18 months, but starting before 18 months won’t mean they can finish any earlier. Don’t not wait until after 32 months to start potty training as starting so late may be related to incontinence in the following years.  The beginning of daytime intensive toilet training should not start until 27 months. If you start earlier than 27 months, you can’t finish any earlier. Nighttime toilet training can wait until 30 months
