Potty training starts between 15-18 months. Medical studies prove that a child cannot hold poop until he/she is almost a year old and definitely cannot hold pee until the age of 18 months until 2 years. In fact, a child can only master bladder control effectively around the age of 3 years. Having said that they can definitely learn recognizing the signs of a natures' call and how to communicate the urge to poop and pee and that's what this training is all about. Understand your infant. If you think, s/he is not resisting potty training schedule, then only persist. But, if you notice any signs of unhappiness, stop and start again after a few months. For more information on potty training, read this blog- https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/conquering-potty-training-6-ways-to-potty-train-your-child/581 I hope these give you some ideas.
