Look around these websites to learn more about Elimination Communication (EC). Though it has a bunch of different names, it’s really all the same. The idea behind EC is that babies don’t want to wet/soil themselves much less than you or I do. They are born with the ability to control their elimination and only need help getting to a toilet (or whatever you use to “catch” their pee/poop). The concept is based on communication. It’s not intended to be potty training, though I understand that that’s the only way some folks can see it. Read on and see what you think.
Also check out the discussions happening now by EC’ing families on Mothering.com’s EC forum
As well as the Elimination Needs forum at Natural Parenting- a site for Natural Parenting Magazine, an Australian magazine published in Brisbane, Queensland.
