or well, you could title this post a whole heck of a lot of things.
I have had a lot of people ask about Harlow using the toilet from 3 months of age, on. For some reason, or reasons, I’ve hesitated doing any posts on this topic.
- I’m not an expert. It has simply worked for our family.
- I’m no better a mom for it nor is my daughter is smarter than other babies: I don’t think that + I don’t want to portray that.
- I don’t want ugly conversation. Especially over something as silly as this topic.
But, people have asked, so I’m going there. Elimination Communication has been so incredible for our family + I want to answer your questions. I’ll be writing about our experience, resources, what I’ve learned, etc. So I guess the length of this series will be dictated a lot by the questions that y’all have!
With a psychology background + my constant need to know “why” got the best of me + I ended up reading every parenting-type book possible. That was a huge mistake, but a post for another time.
So in the next installment in this series of potty humor ….or, as it’s officially called : Elimination Communication, I will explain about how we got started + how it went. I’ll get into books, tips, thoughts, interviews with MDs + others who have done “EC” with their children + anything else you want to hear!
The video below is the very first time I put baby girl on the toilet. I sat behind her, as you can see + I’ll explain more about that later. Needless to say, I’m a dork + was pretty excited when she went successfully! So I [duh!] sent this video to the family. She was 3 months + 3 days old.
Um….is she not the cutest!?!?! + please. please ignore me. Yes, breast milk poo smells weird. + yes, my voice is so lame on video!
Well! I’m excited about this series! Leave any questions you might have in the comments below or email me!
I’ll try to refrain from terlit jokes. Promise.
