4-6 Months

Age 4 to 6 MonthsThis is the age at which you can start trying with more commitment.  Obviously at this age your baby still relies on you for everything.  If you begin pottying or EC at this age you will be the one who will get them to the potty and clean them up.  A positive outlook is the most important. If at any time you felt stressed or frustrated, leave it for another day.

  • Observe signs during diaper-free time and remember to cue when voiding
  • Offer the potty during diaper changes, immediately after nap time and after drinking/eating
  • Praise successful catches
  • Take a break if you feel stressed about the process
