Baby Toilet Training: Elimination Communication Stories

You’re looking for stories for mothers to discover all you need to know about Baby Toilet Training?

Baby Toilet Training is also known as EC, elimination communication, having a diaper free baby or going nappy free.

A popular section of Tribal Baby is called Adventures in Elimination Communication, or Part Time Baby Pottying.

Parents practicing elimination communication are sharing their stories with you in their own words in this section of Tribal Baby…

Adventures in Elimination Communication:

Georgia and Imari, from Australia…

“It made me feel like I was doing a better job at learning how she communicates. Before I heard about EC, I had come across Attachment Parenting (AP). With AP, communication and attachment is key and by learning EC and helping Imari to learn it too. I realised that it was helping me and her to bond better and be more secure in the attachment. I know that Imari trusts me because of my attachment parenting and I think that this has made our EC journey a lot easier.”

The most important thing about EC is that no-one can give advice about it unless they have practiced it themselves, it is such an experience based activity. Ignore the ‘rantings’ from people who have ‘heard’ this or that – those are opinions based on lack of experience. Form your own opinions! (Have your own fun…) Learn from the experts – the mothers and their babies! Then discover EC with YOUR baby…

7 Tips to Start Pottying Your Baby With Elimination Communication

7 Tips to Start Pottying Your Baby Today!

My Quick Start Guide to Pottying Your Baby Using the Elimination Communication Method…

By Charndra Josling

You’re interested in beginning this ancient art – helping you to communicate with your baby about their basic bodily needs, and in the process discovering that you can reduce the number of diapers or nappies you need to use. (It’s really about the bond it brings)

classic position of Elimination Communication

- This photo shows me holding baby Jett in the classic EC Squat position. It aids easy elimination, and is the traditional way of holding a baby. A newborn is supported by your body, as they are until they can sit on a potty. In arms is great as you can offer a quick wee when out over a loo or a discrete bush to keep that diaper dry a bit longer.

Baby Pottying is fun, it can help little newborns feel more comfortable, help you understand more ‘unexplained’ fussing or crying, reduces poopy nappy changes! It helps any parent reduce the environmental impact of a baby – even by striving for just 1 less diaper or nappy a day. Give it a shot – see how you go!

Your Baby Will Still Wear Diapers – But Not ‘Use’ Them 100% Of the Time…

The 1st thing to know is that becoming ‘diaper free’ or ‘nappy free’ is the destination of your EC journey, NOT the start.

Elimination Communication is a gentle and responsive activity to practice daily with your baby.

It’s about your relationship.

The 2nd thing to know is that Baby Pottying is something fun to enjoy with your baby, to chuckle when you have a miss – as yes, they will happen. Change the diaper or nappy and move on…

You can be part-time diaper or nappy free by practicing a little baby pottying. (a fussing baby is often a signal that your baby needs your help to ‘go’.)

Our babies gradually and slowly learn to eat, crawl, play, talk, walk – they can learn to use the toilet in much the same naturally evolving way. You may need to get a few paradigm shifts going to help them though, as our society currently favours doing nothing but cleaning up after them until they are 3 or more.

7 Quick Tips to Get Started with Elimination Communication:

1. Offer a potty break when your baby wakes, or if they seem ‘unsettled’ or ‘fussy’.
2. Offer simply at nappy changes. Trickle water from the tap. Say ‘sss pss’ whenever they pee so it helps them know the feeling of when they go.
3. Breathe slowly and deeply, tighten your belly muscles when offering a pee-break, and wait patiently about one minute. Talk to your baby about what you are doing together. Smile at baby in the mirror. Sing a potty song. I’ve collected over 40 potty songs and cheers here.
4. Find some time to give baby a diaper free hour on a washable surface (towel, tiles, a waterproof
mat) so you can observe to begin learning their physical or verbal signs for when they need to wee.
5. Learn to hold your baby in the ‘classic’ EC position – back safely against your belly, hands
gripping and supporting their thighs from below, holding them slightly apart. Practice with a doll if
nervous. Try it out over the bath or laundry sink so you don’t have to ‘aim’ yet.
6. Look into buying a baby potty – potties with smaller holes so your baby can sit more comfortably with your help. A clean bucket is a great first potty – hold between your knees as you dip baby’s bottom in. I still use one!
7. Have fun figuring it out with baby – you might just get addicted. (Skipping messy diaper changes is a huge bonus!)

Perhaps Baby Pottying Will Be A Wonderful Discovery for Your Family?

It’s easy to give it a go as your baby wears diapers between potty visits. There is no concern about ‘mess’ everywhere. Your baby will go in their diaper or nappy as usual when you miss their needs or are otherwise
busy at the time. This is how modern families practice EC.

EC is a flexible option, you need to have some daily consistency, a regular time you give your babe the ‘opportunity’ to use a baby potty to help them stay aware and give them the opportunity to go so you can use your ‘cue’ sound to help them learn when to go.

Elimination Communication: Potty Songs to Sing With Your Baby!

POTTY SONGS: Making Elimination Communication Easier.

Singing fun songs and rhymes is a popular activity to add to your ‘potty breaks’. I love them! They are FUN! They can become another tool for your EC Toolbox.

Read on for great inspiration for EC Songs, Ditties, Rhymes and Cheers!

“When a thing is funny, search it carefully for a hidden truth.”

George Bernard Shaw (1856 – 1950)

Consider these 12 likely benefits of singing potty songs and using potty cheers:

  1. Helps your baby to relax to go, your warm friendly voice is soothing…
  2. Keeps baby, (and you) entertained as baby does their business…
  3. Aids you in being ‘mindful’; living in the moment with your child…
  4. Assists in helping your baby transition from when they signal a need until arriving at the potty place, (on the way to the bathroom!)
  5. A bright and interactive cue, reminding them it is potty time, letting you know if they start to sing it, even being a ‘sound’ reminder if you notice signs they need to go and want to draw attention to the potty in a subtle way to encourage self-initiation.
  6. Helps others – siblings, grandparents & carers assist baby with ease as baby relaxes with and knows the songs are for fun…
  7. Offers your child appropriate language to recognise and later communicate their need to go…
  8. An opportunity to practise sign language with the songs…
  9. A modelling activity you can do with toys to practice toilet skills.
  10. Makes going to the toilet (and simply EC’ing) a normal everyday activity with your bright positive approach…
  11. A way to add interest and cooperative play to avoid or minimize a potty pause.
  12. A celebration of your connection when yet another pee goes in the pot!

WOW! I’ll bet you are keen to increase your singing, so here’s some inspiration to get you going:

Elimination Communication is a truly baby-led approach to hygiene that results in a massive reduction in reliance on diapers or nappies over many months, in fact two years. So, yes, it is a gradual process – not a sprint to the finish!

Investing the time is very worthwhile for the many benefits it offers you and your baby. Imagine only seldom changing a poopy diaper – that is what EC meant for us – and I am SO GLAD we raised our baby this way!! Changing nappies or diapers soon became a thing of the past. Wet things were easy to chuck in the washing. Poos went in the loo with EC.
