  • I started training at around 2yrs or just before and they were fully trained (at night as well) by around age 3.

  • I think my eldest was about 2,5yrs, my son was late and didn’t get the hang of it till he was 4yrd old (and wet his bed incidentally till he was about 10yrs old), my 3rd was 1,5yrs old and my youngest isn’t fully toilet trained yet (she’s 7yrs old and has a delay)

  • This is such a hard post to answer because it can make some parents feel judged. First off please remember each child is individual. My daughter day toilet trained at 2y1m and instantly night toilet trained at 2.5 my son on the other hand was 3 for days and nights were hard.

  • My daughter was toilet trained when she was around 3 years old but my son was toilet trained when he was 3.5 years, he wasn’t interested at all.

  • He started training at two and didn’t get it for a few months and then he just got it

  • My children were toilet trained at about the age of two. However, that was in the time of only cloth nappies. When wet, the cloth nappies would get pretty uncomfortable for the toddler. So there was an added motivation for them to use the potty/toilet. Nowadays, it seems more children are toilet trained around three years old. It is probably a quicker process as the kids are older.

  • I tried toilet training my son when he was 1 year old but failed. I gave up and tried again when he turned 2 and he seemed quite ready for it. It was a cake walk.

  • 26 months for wee, 28 months totally.

  • DD was just over 2 (27 months) but she initiated, one day just woke up and asked to wear undies, although it took about 3 months for her to be completely accident free

  • At 23 months. I was lucky as my little girl requested to go no diaper.

  • When they were around 2 months shy of their 3rd birthdays. We did it over summer so they could do 3yr old kinder with no nappy.

  • My daughter just turned 3. She is not toilet trained yet, we have given a serious try about a month ago, but she wasn’t ready. I learnt early my daughter will do things when she is ready and wants to, if I try to push the issue, it only delays it further.

  • My daughter is about to turn 3 and she is only just getting the hang of using the toilet. She was very verbal from a young age, very switched on so I’m surprised it’s taken this long but she just was not interested any earlier and I didn’t push it. They all get there’s in their own time.

  • I believe each kid is different. My girls were just turned two but my son is two and we haven’t even started yet. I ask him but he doesn’t seem interested yet. So im not pushing it.

  • Both my girls toilet trained just before they were 3 and had it down pat within a couple of days. 1 night time trained at the same time the other didn’t get it till she was 4.
