Infant Potty Training

I want to begin infant potty training with my 5 month old but am not sure how to begin, especially since dirty diapers don't seem to bother her at all. Just wondering if anyone has any pointers on this to help me get out from under all these dirty diapers.

  • well I would have suggested EC but at 5 month old you are past the point of learning cues, or at least from my understanding you are. A 5 month old can't hold it, nor get up and go potty by herself so you really aren't going to have much luck.

    You can look up elimination communication but I think babies stop doing their cues at like 4 months old.

  • That seems crazy to me - what's the rush? Wait until she is ready!
