7-9 Months

Age 7 to 12 MonthsThis age for EC is a little more challenging as your baby is likely now on the move! I found even with my son having a lot of successes from 5 months on, once he learned to crawl we entered a new phase of pottying. This can be a more difficult period to start at.  Have patience, and keep trying.

  • Practice cueing when you notice voiding
  • Have distractions in the potty for more mobile babies
  • Allow your child to watch you voiding
  • Teach the sign for potty or the ability to verbalize their needs
