So i am a believer that children will learn through association. I also was potty trained (as was my mom and grandma) by being placed on potty everyday as a baby until i naturally just learned that that is where you go potty and not in a diaper. so When a friend told me about EC (Elimination Communcation) it made perfect sense. it was a name to a theory that my family had for generations subscribed to. now please understand that ECing isn’t about training Harvey ECing is more about us as the parent learning Harvey’s signs and putting him on the potty so that he will learn the association. So anyway this is what we do…. atleast once a day we set harvey on his little potty and we make a pssss sound and he watches a potty training video and we wait. at first he would take a little while and sometimes he still does but pretty much so far is a success for us. he goes in his toilet pretty quickly. we have also gotten pretty good at reading his signs although we occasionally get a miss (but usually we know that we are gonna miss 🙂 ) But anyway in the end we are getting better and we get a few more catches a day and harvey is starting to signal us more. its super rewarding to see this work for us and we hope that someday soon we will get to share how he stay’s dry for longer than his nap. So i would encourage you if you are having trouble with potty training or nervous to potty train that you consider doing Elimination Communication and as i learn new things i will be sure to share.
