Those sphincter muscles are fully developed at around 18 months of age, which means your little one can be potty trained successfully. My kiddos all sported fancy Dora, Elmo or Princess undies at 18 months. Now, I started potty training all my kids earlier than most because I was not a big fan of changing poopy diapers. However, you can be just as successful if you begin potty training around the 18 month mark. Neeley Dosdall, mother of 5, started her kids out at 18 months and never looked back!

  • Once you start potty training, never go back to a diaper except for night time.

  • Start potty training your child at 18 months.

  • Never look back!

  • Avoid potty training during life-changing seasons or events, like the holidays, moving, travel…etc.

  • Use a splash guard potty seat for boys and make sure it doesn’t pinch them!

  • Have them sit for only 7 minutes at a time. Then try again later.

  • For boys between 18-24 months, you can pour warm water over their little boy parts and “kaboom” it makes them go!

  • Use stickers as rewards over candy.

  • Remember that this too shall pass!
