One mommy recently posted a topic on how to potty train her 1 year old. Some mommies replied with helpful ideas but some are very negative even going as far as saying that she would be scarring her child emotionally?! Come on!
Read this blog about diaperless China and tell me again that it can't be done. Keeping in mind that the computer you are reading the blog on possibly came from china!
My baby girl is 6.5 months old. She poos and does 4 - 5 pp's in her potty every day. I watch her closely and know very well what signs to look out for, take her to her potty and give her a cue. If you think that a child under the age of two has no idea about bodily functions I invite you to spend a day at my house. This isn't 'potty training' as you might know it. Its called Elimination Communication or Natural Infant Hygiene. I know of an 8 month old little boy who uses sign language to communicate his need to go potty.
No negative comments please because my LG isn't emotionally scarred. She laughs every time she does something in her potty. Read the blog!
