When they're ready, which really depends on the child. I think it helps if they have some verbal ability as it helps them communicate to you that they need a wee/poo.

My DS1 was 2.75 years old when we did potty training, and he was trained in a few days. Before then we'd had a potty around the house which was a familiar object and he knew what it was for.

From seeing other people's children the ages have ranged from around 2 to 3.

My understanding is that 18 months is the absolute minimum age as they have no control before then. However, very few kids are ready at 18 months and between 2 to 3 years is more realistic. If they start saying that they need a poo before they do it that’s a good sign.
