What age should you be out of nappies?

What age should you be out of nappies?

I have two little ones and
I only started potty training when I was over 30 months’ old.
Nowadays, I would never train my child until they were over 3!
It varies from child to child no matter what the gender is, it always comes down to the child
Does your child always ask you when you’re going to potty train?

How long potty training takes as a process will depend on the child and the method used. Most children are able to
complete their training in under 2 years. Some children are able to train in as little as 3 months.
Do you ever get the feeling that your child isnt ready to go toilet training just yet?

Yes, I do. It is a worrisome trend. Most children are used to toilet training at around 18 months, but some are truly tired of it by
Year 2 or 3 starts to take its toll. Sometimes a little persuassion doesn’t hurt…

What age should you be out of nappies?
I have a hard time coming up with an age at which to train, other than some vague general rule about ‘now is the best time’.
For me, the perfect age is when the child is TOTALLY ready and I can confidently say that I have trained them correctly.
For some people, this can be anywhere from 2 months to 3 years old. For others, it can be as little as 2 weeks old.

My little one is almost 3 – I have bought a potty for him to do a pooey wee in, and he desperately wants to do it, but he knows that he can’t pull down his own underwear until he’s 3 years old.

I have two ds’s 17 mo old’s and one 17 month old. I started nappies at 17 months and have had them since then. the only thing that has changed is the fact that i have pocket cuffs so when they wets or soils their nappy they have someone to giggle at. it’s such a relaxing thing to do!
My ds is 24 months and in starting him next month have had nappies off for nearly a year. I started him at 18 months and started wearing a nappy at 21 months. I started thinking about starting him at 23 months and having the bath every now and then to make sure he was dry thoroughly before he went to bed.
I think the reason you get more people saying to wait is people are more defensive about reasons for doing it later, so are more likely to post. (may be same for starting earlier?) I would imagine the vast majority are in the middle somewhere and would tend not to post as they are assuming they are average ifswim?
It’s all very reassuring to read what you’ve posted. In fact, more (relatively) early potty trainers are emerging, making me feel less like the wicked witch and more like a normal mum who can’t abide more poo than necessary.
Some of you have also mentioned night time training. That has been a different story in our house – ds1 was dry at night at 18 months (day and night simultaneously) but ds2 took until nearly 4am to be dry.
We had a totally dry/clean day today after a bit of regression so I’m feeling slightly more confident that I’ve done the right thing – if smarties can make a child keep their pants dry, then surely they are mature enough to be out of nappies?
I understand those who don’t want to change nappies longer than necessary, but tbh I find nappies much easier to deal with than puddles / pooey knickers.
