EC is a gentle, non-coercive method of potty training from birth. It is what parents were doing for 100,000 years pre-diapers, and is based upon responding to the signals of babies, much like heeding their requests when hungry or sleepy. Certainly a worthy conversation – here’s to the possibility of diaper independence!  The benefits of Elimination Communication include reducing your dependence on diapers, saving you money and reducing the environmental impact of diapers, reducing the frequency of diaper rash, enhancing your connection with your baby and having an easier time transitioning to the potty full-time in the future.

Elimination Communication & Toilet Training 

Elimination Communication, or Infant Potty Training, is the natural alternative to full-time diapering and eventual toddler toilet training. More than half the world’s children are potty independent by 1 year old. So can your child! Think about all the cultures who do not have access to diapers… Babies are born signaling their needs. We are here to help you free from the full-time dependence upon diapers.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my toddler is ready?

If you’ve been reading dozens of websites or spoken to family and friends and got conflicting advice, you may think your toddler isn’t ready because she’s not showing any, all, or some of the signs. But, if she’s walking confidently & can follow simple instructions then the likelihood is she’s ready! This could be much earlier than the age we normally expect them to be – as early as 16 months.

Did they ever go through a phase of strongly resisting a diaper change? Have you thought this could’ve been their way of saying they were done with diapers…?

If you’re still unsure, get in touch and I can point you in the right direction.

My baby is under 18 months, can I still potty train?

Absolutely. Children in many parts of the world are still potty trained at 12 months or thereabouts. Your toddler will need more help with the process, so I recommend using a flexible approach: a mix of potty training and elimination communication. So parental input & responsibility is greater at this age, but independence and reliable dryness is achieved much earlier.

Won’t it be harder to potty train “early?”

Research shows it takes the same time whether you start at 18, 24 or 36 months – the time it takes is related to your toddlers temperament, not his age. However the incidence of accidents, wetting, soiling and withholding do increase significantly after 36 months.

If you potty train at 18 months or earlier, your toddler will need more assistance from you for a little longer, but they will be independent much sooner. And most toddlers will need help wiping until they are close to 4!

Isn’t it gentler to let them potty train themselves?

There are two common risks and issues with letting children do it themselves. The first is that the age range at which they usually do it varies from 3.5 – 5 years and the risk of UTIs, constipation & wetting greatly increases as children get older. The second is the risk of feeling shame. Even if parents are extra careful not to shame a 4 year old still in nappies, they are likely to notice that other children use the toilet and feel ashamed that they need their nappy changed. Besides, we decided to put them in diapers so I firmly believe we should help them out of diapers.

"Angela was a great help when I needed support during my daughter's potty training journey. She was patient and encouraging during difficult times. She also gave good advice on when to step back and when to support my child. I am grateful for her time and her effort in helping us. If you need Potty training support you can join her community FB Group called Go Diaper Free Singapore and also connect with other like minded families."
