DIY split crotch clothing for elimination communication
When you are pottying your baby you want to ensure they are warm and covered up, especially in colder weather. You can quickly DIY a pair of tights, a baby vest and a baby sleep suit into split crotch clothes to make elimination communication easier. And no sewing required!
On cover days, you can wear the baby split tights with a pair of split crotch trousers when nappy free. That’s how parents often dress their babies in China and other countries where baby potty training/ toileting (elimination communication) is the “norm”. In China, the trousers are usually cut with a large hole at the front and back, and babies wear these with a nappy belt and prefold / soaker pad tucked into the front and back.
Using split crotch trousers with a simple cloth back up can be a great way to increase your catches whilst still using what is effectively a nappy (as back-up) and is very simple to use. In Western cultures, because its not common to see babies dressed for easy pottying, most people go for something a little more discreet. You can make your own split crotch pretty easily by adapting an existing pair of trousers as I show you in my other tutorial here.
