Elimination Communication & Cloth Diapers

I just wanted to link to a great post about cloth diapers and Elimination Communication (potty learning for infants). I plan on using EC with my next child and can’t wait to give it a try. Silly, I know.

Emeth’s Post on EC & Cloth

    I’ve been watching my son for cues since he was born, and at 3 months I started putting him on the potty/over-the-toilet. It works so well, he took to it immediately and within days was actually holding it until we got him to the potty (he can’t hold in longer than 2 or 3 minutes.) We save money because he isn’t going through so many diapers and, since he does nearly EVERY poop on the potty, I don’t have blow-outs anymore.

    I would like to switch to cloth diapers now and am just looking at my options. I want the style that is best suited to EC.

    i started it with my baby, since she was 5 days old…it’s the best forgotten old childcare practice. I am chinese, and I remember mom used to do that with us. So i know that it works.

    Definitely give it a go – and you’ll be astounded that it feels really natural. All you will realy be doing is responding to the needs of your baby, to make their time getting used to their body easier.
