While early potty training is popular in countries such as Africa, it has not been embraced in the United States. In fact in some countries, such as India, babies often go bare bottom from birth and parents practice infant potty training from the time their baby is just weeks old. Most U.S. children begin potty training between the ages of 2 and 3.
