Start now with the toilet training it take time, my 3 and a half year old has just worked it out and he started when he was two(slow!!!!). My two year old sits on the pottie when he see his brother on the toilet so maybe he wont take so long.
Its a hard one, good advice is your advice do it your way good luck

I believe that there is never a good time. It is when your child is ready. If he comes up to you and lets you know that he has gone to the toilet or needs to than I suggest that you try and start him on the potty. But if he is still not letting you know than he is not ready. Some kids take a long time to train but some are very easy.
Not every kid is the same. My son is 21mths and not trained but my friend who's little girl is only just turned 18 mths has been trained for 1 mths now and is off the bottle aswell.
So it just depends on your child

Start when he seems ready and the only way to find that out is to take him to the toilet or potty a number of times! I had my son full toilet trained, yes night time aswell, just after he turned 2yo! It is hard but you have to be persistant and patient!
Best wishes and hope all goes well!

I must be very lucky, my little girl is two and a half and only has a nappy on at night.
I found the best way was to get one of those little seats that slip under the toilet seat to train her. She didn't understand a potty, as she saw me and my partner go to the toilet. So I put her straight on the toilet and had no drama's.
