"He signs or grunts to let me know when he was to go!"
The mum asked other parents for their best tips and tricks "elimination communication" to make the process even easier.
In a previous post, the mum explained she started the elimination communication training with her tot when he was just five-months-old.

"We introduced the potty at the same time we started solids. In less than a week all of his bowel movements were on the toilet," she explained.
In fact, it might seem strange, but the mum revealed her tot hasn't had an accident in at least two months because the mum knows his routine.
She said: "He uses the potty after waking up, after meals, and before bed."
Other parents loved the method and flooded the comment section with their own experience.
One wrote: "I did the same with my kids, works amazing for us."
A second said: "Amazing! Babies are born ready! Either we teach them to go in a nappy away from natural instinct or we teach them the appropriate place from the start."
Not everyone was convinced though, one TikTok user wrote: "He can't even sit up himself so he's not potty trained."
And another slammed: "Anyone can but their baby on a toilet and say 'oh my baby's potty trained at six months.'
"It's a competition between mom's at mommy and me, terrible."
