He has no problem pulling down his pants.

No matter the environment, if your child doesn't think twice about pulling down his pants when the need to pee hits or deftly removes a soiled diaper all on his own, he's probably ready to start sitting on the potty. Now is a good time to encourage your child to head to the bathroom before stripping down and sitting on the potty when he's feeling the urge to go. While training, stash extra underwear and clothes in your bathroom cabinet so you always have dry items on hand. Wet wipes are also a must.
