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 do...like play! Hopefully there are some surprising answers here...
