11 months is a little young to potty train.
i was potty trained by 2 years old my mom said she would just recognize when i would go and started to sit me on the potty everytime.. after ahile i guess i just realized i was supposed to be on the potty. never to early to start teaching your child. not saying that it will happen over night but in time she will learn. you know your child best. good luck :)

back in the day the majority of kids were fully trained by 2. i was!. put her in cotton underwear. pull ups are too much like diapers, and to a kid at this age, it's the same thing. they will just assume it's a diaper, and go in it. little girls usually don't like being dirty. with boys, that's a different story. take her to the potty every 15 minutes for the first week. or just put the potty in the living room if you dont want to go back and forth to the bathroom all day. as soon as she finishes a meal or drink, put her on it. the second week in, try to go every 20-30 minutes. third week, about every 40 minutes. keep her in a diaper when she takes a nap and goes to bed, and when she wakes up consistently dry, get rid of them.
Potty training can be so hard, I've also been there. But luckily I stumbled upon a website and tried a 3 day method I found there. That really worked great, wish I knew of that earlier. Can really recommend it to every parent that is struggling out there! http://www.pottytrainingboysgirls.org
