The child centred potty learning technique involves observing your baby to recognise and respond to their needs with kindness and patience. It works in the same way as you spot signs for hunger or tiredness. This gentle nonverbal conversation is also referred to as: elimination communication, EC, natural infant hygiene, and nappy free or diaper free. Unique babies learn to go to the toilet a different ages and in different ways all around the world, so find what works for you.

Benefits

of early potty training


To parents and guardians:

  • It is quicker to clean a baby's bum when they poo in a bucket or toilet than in a nappy. This way the poo does not stay on their skin, and spread across their back and into their clothes.  
  • You save money and the environment by buying or washing less nappies and using less nappy cream. In the long run you save time on nappy changes, (but in the short run you spend more time, and also spend pennies on cafe toilets).
  • Connect through communicating about toilet needs, remove the mystique of the toilet, and start training before your baby is a distractible toddler.
  • Improve health through drier, cleaner nappies. Reduce the increased risk of urinary tract infection for children who still wear nappies at age 3 or 4. Our child never had nappy rash.
  • Help children develop bodily autonomy when they are ready
  • Why not?

To childminders, nurseries and day care:

  • In the UK, earlier potty training is increasing in popularity and has featured in the news. It is therefore topical to offer this service.
  • Parents may be waiting for you to tell them to start toilet training. When they hear it is possible to start sooner, parents could be pleasantly surprised.
