Passing the Baton Young Toddler EC Program
The 12-17 month period is all about stopping the use of daytime diapers, teaching key parts of the whole routine, prompting instead of asking, supporting them in their learning, providing ample privacy and space to express and integrate the tasks at hand, and handing off the baton so your child can own the process, fully as possible.
The Simple Outcome: Take logical steps towards potty independence with your young toddler
- troubleshoot EC issues that come with this becoming independent phase
- continue to place the building blocks for potty independence
- stop using diapers at home and during awake times, possibly also on outings
- focus on the process
- focus on supporting your child’s independence and providing privacy
