No, it's not toilet training, it's Elimination Communication or 'EC' for short. For more on EC visit my website:

My son has been using the potty since he was 7 months old, though not exclusively. He likes to use the potty and he's been doing virtually all his poops in it since he was about 1 year old.

Contrary to what we are taught to believe, babies are born with the instinct not to soil themselves. Yes, it's amazing! We teach them to use diapers and later re-teach them not to use the diapers. Confusing, isn't it? Imagine how confusing it must be for the kids!

It does take some effort to do EC, but the results are a child that happily uses the potty like it was the most natural thing in the world- which it is, really. EC is sometimes called "infant potty training", but it's really not potty training at all. It is a gentle, natural, and non-coercive alternative to toilet training.

And one bonus (among many) for parents is never having to struggle with conventinally toilet training or changing diapers on a 3 or 4-year-old.
