19Elimination Communication Allows Early Potty Training
Actress Mayim Bialik put elimination communication in the spotlight when she talked about using this method with her sons for potty training. Basically, a parent who takes this approach reads the cues a child is giving and takes him to the bathroom instead of relying on diapers. This starts before
the age of one, requiring parents to read the signs of infants before they can speak.
This approach is great for the environment since it cancels the need for diapers. It's also a way to potty train a child early, likely skipping the child ever being scared of the potty or defiant about using it from years in a diaper. It is messy, and it does require constant vigilance from parents, but some moms and dad feels it's worth the extra effort.
