When to toilet train a child is one of the most common concerns of parents. Several researches has been made in toilet training toddlers and it was found out that the most ideal age to toilet train a child is between the age of 2 years old to 4 years old.
It is a very lengthy process that usually depends on each child’s willingness to be trained. Girls typically achieve bladder control earlier than boys and bowel control is often achieved easier and earlier than bladder control. About 90-95% of children are completely toilet trained by the age of 5 years.Early potty or toilet training, which is done before the age of 2 is discouraged because this often leads to chronic stool retention and encopresis.
