I don't understand the POINT of TTing a 6mo?? Like.. I understand the nappies and having children who don't like having things in their nappies.
But I don't understand the point, particularly with a whistle? A 6mo can't walk or crawl on his or her own and can't really effectively communicate that they need to go NOW. So I don't see the point if you can't put it into practice??

I'm ok I'm totally not keen on the whistle we did EC with DD (have lost our way a bit and we currently have lots of misses) but the general idea is that newborns are actually aware of their bodily happenings (you just have to learn the cues and communicate with them) and that putting nappies on then basically teaches them to ignore these feelings and they become mute to them so you have to teach them to relearn these feelings at a later age so you can TT them.
Personally I have found it very positive I love 'catching' a poop or a pee it means we are communicating especially when I am just holding her and I get an inkling that she needs to go and she does currently lots of our catches are done after sleeps.
So yeah it's not about rushing to TT them (for everyone who does it) it's about keeping that knowledge they are born with and respecting them enough to help them toilet. Hell I'm sure it would be easier to just let adults who can't get to the toilet poop and pee in a nappy but we don't, we help them, it's about helping a baby too, that's my job as my babies mummy and im happy to do it

It is win win. She learns that mummy responds to her quickly as possible and saves me a pooey mess.
I agree with lovesushi. Its not cruel. In my mind it's responsive parenting.
I don't get the whistle. It sounds like behavioural training but then many parents chose to sleep train their children via a variety of ways Inc cc and CIO. It's no different.

see, to me, i toilet trained Dd for the fact SHE could sort herself out. It would drive me crazy actually having to take a baby to the toilet all the time. I wouldnt even bother worrying about tt until walking at least!

Just a thought
I happily prepare and then sit with/cuddle or feed both my girls to sleep (2yo +8wk). I also with take them both to the toilet/potty when they indicate verbally or via facial cues/grunts etc
For those that object to TT at a young age - do you also object to sleep training as well?
For those that wait till they can toilet themselves to start - do you also let your kids put themselves to sleep as in undress/dress, get into bed etc by themselves?

Maybe she uses a soft sounding whistle, not a harsh one like we are all imagining.... I hope so anyway!

I think EC is cool. I haven't done it but I usually know before katelyn poops.
but using a whistle to frighten baby to cry after they poop I don't see what that will achieve except a tense baby.
