Two months old and I am still getting to know my baby’s delicate features. I look into her deep blue eyes and feel a thrill of delight as her gaze meets mine. She wrinkles her button nose and emits a series of cute little grunts says Anna Williams

Then…sppplat! She emits something from the other end too. Her face creases in relief and surprise and she grins the biggest smile I have seen all day. “Good one!” I say, beaming as I move her from the toilet to the changing mat.

I love elimination communication (EC) and have found it such a great way to learn and bond with my children. I discovered the practice, sometimes also called baby-led potty training or natural infant hygiene, when I was pregnant with my first child.
