Elimination Communication: When can you stop using diapers with your baby?

Video taken from the channel: Go Diaper Free


As long as the diapers are still there (and especially if they are directly accessible to him rather than in a high cabinet or another area he can’t reach) then he’s going to keep using them. It becomes even worse if he requests them and you give them to him. When we are sure they have passed all three stages, then it is time to stop using diapers and start potty training. Note that this process is slow, but constantly evolving. Show interest, observe the signals that your child gives you and encourage them with sweet words and gestures.

If your child is developmentally delayed or autistic, they may be in diapers for years to come, but if your child is otherwise developmentally on track, then they should be toilet trained by school age. If your child is older and ready to start school, then they are old enough to have a conversation about the consequences of not being out of diapers. Being held back and not able to go to school with their.

Now while I started at 2, your child might not be ready to stop using diapers, even at age 2. Instead of sticking to a number, it is more important to check if your child is showing signs of being ready for the potty. Ask yourself the following questions: Can your child understand and follow simple directions?Third, smoke comes out of my ears when people suggest that parents should take diapers away from 2-year-olds to train them to use the potty. You will probably just end up with epic power struggles. Plenty of children age three years and four years still need a night diaper, and bed-wetting is considered to be normal up to the age of five.

One in six five-year-olds wets the bed either occasionally or regularly. Disposable training pants are an option at night, just until your child is trained. They’re easy to use and encourage independence. By the 1970s, this diaper marketing campaign had parents waiting to get their child out of diapers until about 18 to 24 months of age. In the 1970s and 1980s, it was believed that a 2-year-old should be out of diapers.

Shaw does recommend speaking to a doctor if a child has been dry for a long period—say, six months—and then starts having accidents, as it could be a sign of a urinary tract infection. Ditching diapers at night hints at easier times to come for parents, so waiting—sometimes years—can be hard. But it’s something parents can’t control. How long potty training takes as a process will depend on your individual child and the method you choose. Most children are able to control both.

It may result in many accidents and tears for a few days, which may cause more work for you but in the long run, your child would have learnt not to use the diapers. This means you should also not be using training pants or night diapers. You don’t want to confuse your child.

By 4 years of age most children have developed bowel control and by 5 most children have developed bladder control, so these ages are used as the cut-off ages for diagnosing encopresis and enuresis, respectively.

By twenty-four to thirty-six months, when most children learn how to use the toilet, most parents can’t wait to see their last dirty diaper.

If cloth nappies are continued into toddlerhood (many parents switch to paper before this), toilet learning may be easier to accomplish, because direct contact between a sopping wet cloth nappy and skin makes a child very uncomfortable, more aware of being wet, and, hopefully, more inspired to use the potty.

  • Hi Andrea! i absolutely love your videos. When i first heard about EC i was intrigued and started researching and found your channel, it all makes so much sense and i regret that i didn’t practice it with my first child. I started with my second son when he was 12 weeks old and it was fantastic, he would pee on command ( sometimes just a few drops out of courtesy).As soon as he woke up i needed to jump out of bed to hold him for his poo, he did one and was good for the day, later on i sat him on the potty for it and all was fine. Then everything changed, he is now 14 month old and poops in the nappy 5x a day. he doesn’t wanna be held anymore since he is 9 month roughly, doesn’t wanna use the potty at all and i am devastated. what have i been doing wrong? potty to cold? his brother(3) is always with us and distracts him so he waits until he can walk to a quiet spot to do it and then he shows me by tapping his nappy. i have given up now and feel that i failed. what can i do? i would greatly appreciate your help on this Andrea. kind regards Dani

  • @Go Diaper Free could you do a video on how many cloth diapers you personally own in which sizes? Setting up my baby registry and planning on doing EC… I’m sure it varies depending on how vigilant/available you are for EC but would love to have a range! Thanks for any tips!!

  • You waste people´s time… If you want to sell a book or video, why don´t you admit it at the beginning of your video? you think you are more intelligent than others… but you are just greedy liar…

  • The boy and the girl were so cute when Jo was explaining that the nappies were being taken by the pirates. The boy’s eyes were lit up and you could tell he was thinking “Really?!” �� Long overdue though.

  • Was I the only one bothered that the dad was changing the little girls diaper? Like around 2/3 is when my husband stopped helping me with the girls so they could learn boundaries about their bodies

  • But yet they want to remove thousands of children from their parents for being “neglected” for the most stupidest things imaginable in America? let this air in America and you’ll see…smh

  • I trained my kids when they started to walk.
    My first kid at 16 months old and my second kid at 10 months old.
    Success less than a week training. And my third kid already walked like 6 months ago but I haven’t tried to train him yet. I’m getting old.��

  • So if I have a joint family with 8-10 rooms, I’d be investing a mini fortune on potties.

    This video makes it seem like parents have all the time in the world. True for some filthy rich parents I guess

  • Actually,certain people need to drink from bottles and wear diapers/nappies as well. These people include,those with medical troubles,Space Bound Personnel (Astronauts),Red Bull Air Demo Crewmembers,Certain Medical Personnel (Surgeons), Certain Athletes,you decide for yourselves on who has to drink from bottles,wear diapers/nappies.

  • Infant Age Range: newborn-2
    Toddler Age Range: 2-4
    These kids are 5. 5! They’re not “growing into toddlers”, they’re past that point! Let them grow up!

  • My oldest took longer. My middle child did it in 2 3 days. My youngest is 8 months so hopefully start her just after she reaches 1 or next year

  • Great I’ve experienced these tricks even haven’t known them, and it worked! But of course the first day was disaster, then I gave up idea about underwear, and we succeeded

  • I have raised 6 kids and never heard of this! This would have been wonderful to start early. Glad you are sharing it so others can try it.

  • Wow maybe they should not bother having children! That is disgusting to allow them wear diapers at age 5????!!! ABSOLUTELY lazy and neglectful people! Those poor kids! Look how excited they were to be done with diapers and bottle how embarrassing for the kids!s

  • Encourage your kid to come the toilet with you. Uh what toddler has to be encouraged �� I don’t remember the last time I peed alone at home…

  • I don’t plan to have kids, but if I had, I’d do this for sure. I believe it is bad for kids to be sitting on their pee. They are probably much healthier diapers free.
