Why Combine Modern Cloth Nappies With Elimination Communication? 7 Great Reasons

When practicing Elimination Communication, nappies are no longer an essential you can’t survive without – instead, you can simply use those nappies as knickers … knickers with padding.

The Question is “Why Combine Modern Cloth Diapers With Elimination Communication?”

Here are 7 reasons why doing Elimination Communication with Australian Cloth Nappies is GREAT:

  1. Practicing Elimination Communication helps you manage the ‘elimination COMFORT’ of tiny newborn babies – helping them by holding them in position  to get out those messy newborn poops and gasses that can be so uncomfortable and frightening for them – and keeping a nappy clear of one more poo.
  2. Practicing Elimination Communication helps you to preserve your nappy stash for looks and for eventual (and perhaps sooner) re-sale.
  3. Practicing Elimination Communication helps you to reduce your washing load. (Studies have shown using cloth daily takes less than 5 minutes more than disposables – you’ll be miles ahead very soon)
  4. Practicing Elimination Communication gives you the gift of ancient knowledge in caring for and connecting with your baby.
  5. Practicing Elimination Communication helps you to gain strategies for, and confidence in a gentle transition from nappies to knickers.
  6. Practicing Elimination Communication even occasionally supports your baby’s body awareness, making “conventional toilet training” easier (for both you and baby), and probably earlier.
  7. Even ONE less nappy used per day will add up over time – to over 900+ less nappies to manage in 2.5 years.

Toilet Training Tips

Time for Potty or Toilet Training?

There are many terms used for the transition from nappies to independent toilet use, whether that be by potty training or toilet training, the more gradual elimination communication or infant potty training, each is about weaning your baby or toddler from nappies to underwear. So many types of kids, so many factors, so many ways to help them as you find out which suits your child’s needs and disposition.

Our Nappy Experts are invited to contribute to these cooperative questions so that you get a range of informative and experienced responses about the topic. Enjoy and discover something new, and share with us in the comment box below.

Let’s see what helpful tips from experience our Nappy Experts have to share: Toilet Training Tips – Share a helpful tip!

Emma from Wrap ‘Em (closed) recommends:

Don’t stress about it, let your baby/toddler lead the way. Heaps of nappy free time but other than that just let it happen. The best thing about reusables in this way is that there is no pressure to ‘stop buying nappies’ 🙂

Kendall from Australian Baby Supplies recommends:

Put a flushable item such as a coloured ice block in the toilet to encourage boys to aim.

Melissa from Little Para Pants recommends:

Keep a potty in the area where your child spends most of the day. This way they don’t always have to leave what they’re doing, and you can also stick it under them quickly if they have an accident.

Nyree from Kodomo recommends:

Start early – hold baby over the potty as soon as possible, even if just once a day in order to increase their awareness of their body and it’s functions. Oh yeah, there’s a website called Tribal Baby that I’ve heard is worth a read… 🙂

Charndra from Part Time Nappy Free recommends:

I like to encourage a spot of baby pottying myself to help baby stay aware of their wees and poos – and that they can communicate about it! For many a mother around the world, this is the normal thing to do, in fact they call it baby toilet training, although it is a bit different than that.

Think of it as swimming lessons for babies – you help them, they get better as they grow, and become independent in their own time, some early, some the ‘usual’ age, and meanwhile you have less nappies to change or wash as some of those wees and poos go in a potty, on a bush in the garden or down the laundry drain! Some folks just do it while their babies are ‘in arms’, that is before they are mobile, as it is pretty easy then, and many a baby gets too distracted to signal clearly when on the move, so they go back to nappies and timed potty breaks (at changes, on waking…)
