    My DD still cannot get some of her clothes up and down and she's 3 but she's fully potty trained so I don't agree with that being a need at this point.

  • My DS is turning 11 months in a few days and goes pee and poop on the potty or in the toilet.

    I firmly believe that potty training starts at birth. Now I don't mean that you expect a baby to know how to use the potty at 2 months, but that does not mean it is not mentioned until your child is ready. We practice what is called EC or Elimination Communication.

    To start with, one just communicates what is happening (i.e. when you change your infant's diaper, just SAY THAT "mommy is changing your diaper...you had a pee....what a good baby!)

    Secondly, diapers should be change IMMEDIATELY even if you have the super stay-dry ones, in fact, cloth diapers will help have a much earlier success rate, but I know most people think it is MORE WORK (even though it is not, and it's WAY cheaper...we spent a grand total of $550 for diapers in the last 11 months!)

    I'm running out of space here, so message me if you have any questions!:)
