One tough part of potty training a toddler is during the night. The toddler may not be ready to potty train and you may be more comfortable letting her wear a pull-up diaper to bed. Even toddlers who are potty trained may sometimes wet their beds at night, according to Dr. Alan Greene. Patience with night-time potty training is even more important than it is with day-time potty training, because much of night-time training is reliant on physiological readiness, according to Ruth McCamus of the Hospital for Sick Children.
Potty training a toddler requires patience and consistency. Factors that will influence potty training success should be considered before the process begins. The age of the toddler is one small part of the process. Toddlers reach potty training readiness at different ages, so other factors may be more important. Your toddler's maturity level, interest in using the potty, physical development, ability to stay dry and ability to follow directions contribute to the success of toilet training. Follow your toddler's lead, paying close attention to his reactions to your guidance.
Hearing her toddler say that she's wants to use the big potty is something every mother waits to hear. Potty training is a big step in a toddler's life, graduating her from babyhood to being a "big kid" and signaling the end of diapers. For many toddlers, at first, potty training is unique and fun; however, once the newness has worn off, it's common for accidents to begin happening again. Using a chart that a child can fill with bright stickers will help motivate her to continue with their potty training.

Limitless energy and intense curiosity make it a challenge (to say the least) to get a toddler to sit still long enough to make any progress with the potty. Don't make it a battle. Take advantage of that curiosity to perk your toddler's interest. Then incorporate quick and frequent potty trips into your routine.
Just as all kids are unique, there is no right or wrong time to begin potty training your toddler. However, the best time to begin is when she's ready. According to the Mayo Clinic, most toddlers are ready to begin the training process by age 2, although some are closer to 3 years old before they're ready to consider using the toilet. What you have to remember is that potty training is dictated by your child's physical, mental and emotional readiness and not your own timeline.
There is no specific age for when a girl is ready to begin potty training. Some children develop the skills necessary to use the potty on their own between 18 and 24 months of age, but it is just as natural for a child to not start showing interest in potty training until age 3 or 4. Either way, don't push your child to potty train before she is ready. This will only make the process take longer.

According to the Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), once a child begins showing signs that he is physically able and developmentally ready, it's time to give it a try.
