18 months too early??

About 2 weeks ago I got a potty for my 18 month old son. I didn't plan on potty training anytime soon. Anyway I though I'll leave his nappy off for a hour before bath time see if he is interested at all. My son loves sitting on it and had a wee the first day. So every night I have done a hour without the nappy had alot of accidents but a few wee's on the potty. Is he ready or should I wait as Iknow not many people do potty training so young?

It's not that young, nappy manufacturers make people think this!

I would give it a go with no pressure or expectations. Children seemed to potty train a lot earlier years ago. I was 22 months and my sister was 19 months.
No harm in trying, if it doesn’t work try another time.

If he is having a lot of accidents in the space of an hour then I would say he isn't ready.
We tried DD one day and she had a few accidents so decided to wait a bit longer 3 months later tried again and she has not had one accident and can hold it for a long time!
