Today's episode of the Go Diaper Free Podcast is all about baby signals.
How will you recognize when your baby needs to potty?
And, how can you teach them to signal?
Baby signals can differ depending on the developmental stage of your baby, so today we'll cover some of the common signals you will see for various ages and how you can recognize them.
The easiest time to start Elimination Communication is when your baby is a newborn because they tend to be especially vocal with their signals, but EC can be implemented at a later stage and we'll also talk cues for the older baby.
We'll go over what pottying would have been like centuries ago, and how you can let that information guide you through your EC journey.
You will hear:
- Common EC Signals
- What to do if your child stops signaling
- How signals change as your child develops
- The best times to start and stop (wrap-up) EC
