Potty & Beyond

La Leche League Potty Training Article - a feature from the LLL magazine 'New Beginnings' entitled 'Gentle Encouragement for Potty Training'. The article includes anecdotal responses from mothers who share their ideas and thoughts on the subject.

Elimination Communication (EC) is the name given to the practice of closely observing  the infant's body language when they wish to wee or poo and helping them make an association between this and a cue (such as the sssh sound). The aim is for the child to be nappy-free for much of the time, encourages infant hygiene and nurtures close attachments between carer and child. If we chose nappies, how do we foster a fun relationship between potty and kiddie when there might be more interesting things to play! Hopefully there are some surprising answers here...
