Why we choose infant potty training

potty300Practicing elimination communication, or infant potty training, with babies isn’t the same as toilet training for older children, but it sure does make that process much easier.

One way to cut back on both the amount of diapers used every day, as well as the amount of time that kids spend in diapers before being fully potty trained (reducing the overall number of diapers needed), is to use a method called elimination communication, also referred to as ‘infant potty training’.

We’ve used it with each of our children, including our youngest, who is about 4 months old, and have found that it worked well for us and our situation. In addition to enabling our children to go diaper-free much earlier than many of their peers, it’s also helped us to move quite easily into traditional potty training when they’re old enough.
