Don't stress yourself and your child. Wait until they want to do it. It shouldn't take more then a couple of days, honestly. All I did with my three was make sure they had access to a potty (although DD3 never used one, went straight to the toilet) and knew what to do. I would occasionally ask if they wanted to use it, but that was about all.

Oh and of course, lots and lots of nappy free time.
