A mom has revealed that her baby stopped using diapers at just 2 weeks old.
And, for those who think it’s too good to be true, she has revealed exactly how she did it…
And especially for first-time parents, they become a complete whirlwind.
Whether that’s getting used to not sleeping properly, knowing what to feed your baby, or even how to change their diapers… it’s pretty overwhelming.
But sometimes it’s much easier said than done.
Many people say that the child will give you signs that they are ready – and that this usually happens between eighteen months and 3 years old.
There’s no official or set age to start. But research suggests that parents tend to start the training when their children are between 2 and 3 years old.
Montana Lower and Tom Lindwood from Australia, say that their daughter, Blue, hasn’t used diapers since she was 2 weeks old.
That’s literally impossible, right?
Montana released a YouTube video explaining the entire thing, and it’s safe to say, we’re shocked.
Don’t worry, we’ve got the video coming right up…
But it wasn’t long before she changed her mind completely.
Well, according to Montana, the pair used something called “elimination communication.”
Dad, Tom, says parents are able to recognize cues for when their child is hungry, so the same thing can apply for when they need to go to the bathroom.
Montana revealed that it took only 1 day of Tom “really committing” to taking Blue to the potty every time she looked like she might need to go.
Before moving on to a potty.
As well as enforcing a learned behavior.
Since that day, Montana says Blue will look to them when she needs to go to the bathroom and they take her to the potty.
“Babies are born with absolutely no preconceived knowledge of how to go to the bathroom and so if we don’t teach them to go in their nappy, then we don’t have to unteach them,” she said.
“It just makes a lot of sense to just straight up say ‘we go to the toilet this way’.”
“We recommend setting aside one day, Blue took one day to learn she needed to go toilet in the Tupperware container. Then after that it was up to us to read the signs.”
