Is now a good time to start my 20 month old potty training?

Most pediatricians state a child should not be toilet trained until age 24 months. However, you can let your child sit on the potty if they want and reward them for any successes. Also show that you are pleased with their effort. However, do not be angry if they have accidents.

You can begin potty training at any point in time but is commonly begun once the child becomes aware of his or her body and needs.

By 20 months of age most children should be ready to start the process of potty training. If your child is showing signs of readiness like sittinng on the potty, or tellilng you while they are going or just after then he is probably ready.

It is always good to start early, and since you say he's ready just go ahead and teach him. It would take time for them to learn, patience needed!!
