Whether the start of potty training comes earlier or later for your child, you’ll get your cues on “when it’s time” from your child. That emerging independence starts shining through and they’re eager to please. Now is the time to start actively watching for these signs of readiness for potty training.

Common readiness signs include:

  1. Pulling at a wet or dirty diaper
  2. Hiding to pee or poop
  3. Interest in others’ use of the potty, or copying their behavior
  4. Having a dry diaper for a longer-than-usual time
  5. Awakening dry from a nap
  6. Telling you that they’re about to go, are going or have just gone in their diaper.
