Subtitle: The Healthier Way to Toilet Train and Help Your Child Out of Diaper Sooner
This author recommends starting to introduce your baby to the potty at 6 to 9 months. While this is different than the typical EC approach of starting any time after birth, her book is full of very useful information for a gentle and loving approach to potty learning that is very much in alignment with Elimination Communication.
This book is used, from Marija’s personal library. There is one crayon scribble on the front cover and a bit of water damage which takes away the “new” feeling of the book but it is still completely readable.
|Conventional wisdom tells parents that they should delay potty training to toddler age, and only after seeing signs of readiness. But is that really the best way? In Diaper-Free Before 3, Dr. Jill Lekovic presents the new case that early training–beginning as early as nine months olds–is most natural, healthy, and beneficial for your child, based on medical evidence. By incoporating the potty into your child’s routine early on, toilet training becomes far less stressful for both parent and child. Dr. Lekovic’s method, which she has used successfully with her own kids and recommends to patients, helps children become better aware of their body’s signals, boosts confidence, and decreases the risk of urinary health problems. The guide includes informative chapters on bedwetting, accidents, and adapting the method for day care, special-needs children, and older toddlers. Offering a technique that really works and turns toilet training into a positive experience, Diaper-Free Before 3 is sure to become a new parenting classic.|
