Dear Ruchi, 10 months is too early to start toilet training a child. There are signs of readiness which you need to look out for. As Shikha has written, the idea age would be after 18 months and each child take their time to get completely dry. There have been numerous talks on this topic. I am forwarding one talk for you have a read for some suggestions. Here is the link: https://www.parentune.com/parent-talk/potty-training/232

Hi Ruchi! A child becomes toilet trained only when he/she is ready. The child is usually prepared for this kind of training by 18 months of age. A 10 months old baby would get fidgety n cranky if made to sit on potty chair or held in hands for long which could prove to be risky too. It is advisable u could stil wait for some more time before begininning with this training.
