    One thought on “The Diaper-Free Baby: The Natural Toilet Training Alternative”

    1. Hmmmtely intriguing but not too sure that I m going to apply it The concept is that humans are not programmed to soil themselves but we teach our babies to use the bathroom in their pants and hang out in it until we change them, so that when we start potty training them at 2 1 2 or 3, we are having to teach them not to go to the bathroom in their pants although they ve been doing that their whole lives The book teaches you to be in tune with your child s bathroom schedule routine and to know the [...]

    2. Here s my conclusion after reading several potty training books I think that no matter what you do, there is a very good chance that potty training is going to be a long time commitment and huge hassle You can do the work in the beginning EC, from birth to possibly only up to a year , the middle early potty training, from 6mo to 2 years , or the end after 2 years With my twins, I waited until the end, because people told me to wait until they re ready and basically they would train themselves We [...]

    3. As someone who s already hooked on cloth diapers, I sort of stumbled upon elimination communication or EC or infant potty learning or whatever you want to call it by accident while visiting some cloth diaper friendly online forums I found the idea intuitive and interesting, and so did the hubbs This book is great because it breaks down each infant development stage newborn, middle infancy, toddlerhood, etc for toilet hygiene based on whether you re interested in full time, part time, or occasion [...]

    4. My wife insisted I read it well before we ever have a baby I think it covers all the bases and describes well what diaper free baby means.You know, one of the major criticisms I might have is the very title of Diaper Free Baby I prefer the subtitle Natural Toilet Training because I feel like that closely aligns with what is actually going on here.Anyway, I read through the newborn and toddler sections thoroughly and found it to be pretty complete I am not one to find quotes from successful user [...]

    5. This book doesn t break new ground, but it does lay it down gently for the uninitiated If you ve never heard of Infant Potty Training or Elimination Communication, this book is a great introduction for you If you re curious about how you might go about trying it for yourself, this book is encouraging and full of helpful hints, tips, and lists of where to get or make the few essentials a potty, training pants or baby panties, etc There is a subtle humor in the book and none of the alarmist or con [...]

    6. I have a friend who is doing EC and though I do not have anywhere near the discipline to do so exclusively myself, this book did a really nice thing by saying hey, you can do this part time like, even once a day, if you want or less and also hey, if you screw up sometimes its not a huge deal and this is about communication with your child, not about Training per se So in general, I liked Gross Loh s approach to parenting philosophy like, don t beat yourself up about it or try to do it perfectly, [...]

    7. I really appreciated that, unlike many parenting books, this isn t all or nothing Gross Lo provides three tracks to EC and a number of starting points, from never using a nappy from birth to giving a toddler some nappy free time and cueing once in a while It s gentle, encouraging and nonjudgmental.My major criticism is that, like most single theme parenting books, it stretches a little content a long, long way It s heavily padded with anecdotes, true or invented The information on baby wearing a [...]

    8. Zero intention of making a lifestyle of this, but some very good ideas for a realistic approach to introducing baby to standard toileting practices Throughout history and in many other countries including China and India the methods discussed in this book are standard practice, and the American way of doing things is the aberration This is the lightweight offering in this genre, and you literally could not pay me to read one of the thicker tomes on this subject.

    9. A detailed text on teaching Elimination Communication Yep, these are the people that have their babies use the toilet just like the rest of the non developed world Written in a very compelling way that explain techniques, history, and problem solving in a very non judgmental way My kids are a bit old for most of the recommendations, but it was still an informative read that offers ideas for early potty trainers.

    10. This is a GREAT EC book Parenting is so hard, I thought EC would be another thing that was impossible with an actual baby But the author is great about showing how any steps are good steps and it s all about communication, not about results I plan on continuing to use cloth diapers and I feel like there s still so much I learned from this book I hope even awareness will make toilet learning easier, whenever it ends up happening for us.

    11. This book is 99% fluff It has enough content to support a single blog post, and the rest is all useless rambling and parent testimonial after parent testimonial.I read this book because I had an 18 month old who doesn t really speak yet peeing all over my house, and someone suggested that elimination communication was a wonderful, respectful way to help young toddlers and even babies learn to use the toilet It s like clicker training your dog, though.The one thing I got out of the book was they [...]

    12. I felt like the author was my cheerleader in trying EC She offers lots of advice for all stages and ages I have an older mobile baby that I d like to start trying this with, but am still concerned about the time and feasibility I would totally recommend this book to someone who was interested in tying EC, but not your average parent I kinda think most people think I m crazy for even reading this.

    13. Simple, straight forward book I m glad I read it It has lots of testimonies from other EC parents, which is encouraging for those many misses days I also appreciated that the book stressed that EC was primarily about communication and not about a perfect score of no misses I wish I had read this book earlier I think I ll be trying EC with my next one a bit earlier.

    14. Wonderful resource and talks thoroughly about everything you could think of relating to EC, whether starting at 0 days old or 3 years, whether part time or full time doing it.

    15. My brother in law recently told me about Elimination Communication I didn t like the idea right away However, BIL is a person of some sense and sagacity, and I am a person who takes it upon herself to investigate ideas new and possibly disturbing, particularly when they challenge my beliefs how else to counteract confirmation bias So, intent on no contempt prior to investigation I secured some materials about EC This book was the first.Gross Loh writes in the manner that I fancy I would use if I [...]

    16. I first stumbled across the phrase Elimination Communication on a blog some point during my pregnancy I had never heard of it before so I looked it up on , thought that looks interesting but I don t know if it would work for me and put it to the side It was my son who actually started me thinking about it again as I begin to realise that he really didn t like wet diapers Very frequently tears meant that he d just wet his diaper and I would change it he would automatically be happy This reminded [...]

    17. Don t let the title scare you This book is not actually advocating never putting a diaper on your baby Instead it s about Elimination Communication EC which is a different way of toilet training What it amounts to is watching for your baby s signs when they need to go just like you learn when they are hungry or tired and providing a cue when they go which can then be used to let them know when it s a good time for them to go, like once you have them positioned over a potty This system makes sens [...]

    18. I have to say that I would never have picked this book up based on the title I wouldn t have really guessed what it was really about I came across the book when I went to a cloth diaper workshop and it came up when elimination communication was mentioned which is really what the book is about I thought this concept sounded interesting but wasn t really sure about how much work it would be and if my husband would be on board The book is really good at introducing EC as something that you can just [...]

    19. I came across this book when Brynja was already potty training, and highly verbal, so we were not able to do most of the things in this book However, I thought this was a great book and I implemented what I could in Brynja s potty training process, and I hope to EC with my next child What is EC EC stands for elimination communication The basic idea behind it is that all babies are born with the instinct not to want to soil themselves Ever wonder why they always seem to pee the instant you take t [...]

    20. I was interested in Elimination Communication EC before Ian was born, but the information I read made it seem like an all or nothing proposition you had to start by three months at the latest, never have them in diapers in the house, etc and it just seemed too overwhelming in those early weeks with a newborn But recently one of the cloth diaper bloggers I follow mentioned that she practices some EC basically, she sometimes puts her kids on the potty once they can sit up And she recommended this [...]

    21. I really enjoyed this book My wife and I have been implementing the Elimination Communication EC technique for a few weeks now and it seems to be going really well Our little boy is only 8 months old so we re not expecting to catch every elimination, but it s fun to see him start to get comfortable on the potty One aspect of the book that I really liked is that the author consistently reminds you to release any stress or expectations you may have about toilet training The main goal of EC is not [...]

    22. An overview of what Elimination Communication EC consists of and how to practice it, this book is well written and down to earth in its suggestions I agree with the author s idea that EC is just another opportunity to build the parent child relationship However, I am not sure if I would practice EC than part time at least in the beginning because it might prove itself yet one task for me to get the hang of as I commence the journey of motherhood The author promises EC is convenient simpler th [...]

    23. Diaper Free Baby is a must for soon to be and new parents This book will open your eyes to what s possible in terms having children learn to use the bathroom from the beginning instead of learning to ignore their natural cues, learning to go in a diaper and then re learning how to go in the bathroom Diaper Free Baby can seem a bit taunting at first, especially with a first born but the key is to be flexible with one s self and do what is possible in whatever the given circumstances are This book [...]

    24. A friend s wife had this on her , so I decided to go ahead and see what it was about I really enjoyed it, because it really isn t about toilet training your infant It is about learning your baby s cues, in the same way you would learn when your child was hungry or tired She advocates for any form of Elimination Communication, whether you still use diapers or not The book is in no way judgmental, but does highlight some very positive success stories, which might be discouraging depending on your [...]

    25. Worth a read The advice provided was about equal parts amusing that such a simple and obvious part of child raising in my parents world has a whole movement and mystique associated with it in the here and now , ridiculous pottying a newborn during nursing seriously , and useful common timings and signals The propaganda blurbs from parents singing the praises of EC got a little repetitive, even though I happen to agree with many of the advantages We re experimenting a bit with the old school conv [...]

    26. I read this book when my firstborn was a couple months old after being introduced to elimination communication in an article online We started with him at 4 months old, and my second born we started basically at birth With my third, I haven t tried to do EC though I keep intending to start she is now 5 months This book is great and has a lot of good ideas to help you do elimination communication in different ways based on what you are willing and want to do I wasn t super hardcore about it, and [...]

    27. Full of useful tips and inspiring quotes, Gross Loh s writing is very accessible and friendly Although I started practicing elimination communication with my toddler when she was a baby, I still found the book gave me the courage and method to incorporate of it into our lifestyle with the new baby I really appreciated the way she explained how any family can adapt varying degrees of the EC principles into their lives, and how she emphasised the communicative aspect Definitely worth a read for a [...]

    28. Out of all the EC books out there, I chose to read this one because it sounded like a laidback approach It was, and I m glad for that My main hesitation to EC was the idea that I d have to watch my daughter like a hawk 24 7 to catch every elimination So it was refreshing to read about examples of parents who successfully practice EC only some of the time The book is organized by age of the child, so there s some repetition, but I didn t mind the reinforcement of the concepts You could read just [...]
