The infant potty training involves the basics of learning about the timing, vocalization, your infant’s elimination body language and patterns of walking and feeding.
Instinctively, mothers know when the baby wants to go.
Any one in your family who has patience and interest can use the infant potty training in a fun and gentle way. It is best used by:
- Who spends the time in caring your baby for the first 2 years.
- Working parent who is having trustworthy helpers or friend, nanny or a family member.
- Parents who can make use of part-time potty such as evenings or mornings.
The infant potty training requires patience, time and diligence. If you don’t have these qualities, you can have assistance you needed. If it does not work, you can go to regular full-time diapering.
This can be started at the time of birth to 6 months. It might be a sensitive period of learning open and your baby can focus on elimination communication (EC). You can start at later stages also if you do not start at early stage.
It is safe when the parents have right-mind set. You must be patient and relax when you are working with your baby. You should respond and observe to your baby’s signals when ever possible and give loving and proper support while holding your baby for potty.
It works, but only with some effort. It requires many months for completion of infant potty training. It will be exciting and fun for both the care giver and your baby.
You can use the training pants in between potty visits or can use the diapers or can leave naked or bare- bottomed.
By observing the following you can know when your baby wants to go:
- Cues (vocalizations and body language) and signals
- Elimination patterns (walking, feeding etc)
- Instinct and intuition
