When toddler girl was fifteen months old I began sitting her on the potty before every bath. The one day she quite happily sat on the potty and did a poo. When she had finished she got up and clapped her hands. Feeling extremely proud of her, I gave her a cuddle, and told her she was a good girl.    

This got me thinking,  is she too young to potty train?

    Being a fan of social networking sites I decided to ask other parents whether I should try and start potty training toddler girl. I was surprised by some of the reactions, most of the parents I spoke to believed toddler girl was far too young to start potty training. 

 But why?

I remember my own Mum telling me she had me out of nappies at twelve months, surely then toddler girl is more than capable of learning to use the potty.

I decided to investigate further.

      Toilet readiness.

T.Berry Brazelton states that, as parents, we should wait until our child shows ‘signs of readiness' before we attempt to potty train them. 

But what are these signs, and should we be waiting for them to occur naturally, or can they be encouraged and taught?
