When to start potty training

There’s no universal age at which children are ready to start potty training, but the Web sites recommended below can help you gauge your child’s emotional and physical readiness at a more individual level.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Try typing “toilet training” instead of “potty training” into your favorite search engine to get even more results—it’s likely that fewer of the Web sites will be about potty training puppies.
  • If you’re planning to familiarize your child with the bathroom before potty training, supplies can be purchased online. For example, Target sells potty training equipment, as does Toys”R”Us.
