Re: Potty training for non-walking toddler?

If she is showing those indications I would probably start, just not rush/push, but it sounds like that's what you have in mind. I would start a non-walking toddler just like any other toddler...physically take them into the bathroom and sit them on the potty at intervals when they will like need to use it. To start with I would probably only do first thing in the morning, first thing after nap, and if she is signing diaper or grunting like she's about to fill it. I wouldn't worry about the not walking part too much yet, especially since you said that she is close. She will probably start walking before she is potty trained so I don't think it will be too much to worry about long term. If she starts having successes at those times and seems excited to use the potty then you can start taking her more of my DDs wasn't walking when she started using the potty either....she would just crawl into the bathroom. I would take off her pants/diaper for her and sit her on the potty and she'd do her business. If you try the pottying and she's not into it I would probably just turn her diapers around backwards for now so she can't get them off and wait a bit longer.
