A couple revealed how they got their daughter to use the potty for the first time at just two weeks.

Montana Lower and Tom Linwood have been using the "elimination communication" method with their daughter Blue since she was two weeks old.

The parents said the "EC" gave them signs when she wanted to use the bathroom.

EC is based on looking for "signs" to suggest your baby needs to go to the toilet, without relying on a nappy.

Now the couple released a video on their YouTube channel, On The Way, describing how the method works.

Blue began making different faces or even yelling if she needed to go.

Tom said: "Every mum knows when their baby is hungry and they have cues for that and they have the same cues when they need to go to the toilet.

"It's just about listening and watching for it."

Montana was first sceptical about using the method and the accidents that it could cause.

She believes thinking it was "crazy" from not being exposed to it in Western countries.

She said: "But it is practiced all over the world. It's a lot cleaner if you take them to the toilet."

The couple believe it's empowering for their child to know they are being heard which is a "beautiful theme that leads to connection".

Tom added: "You're reducing the amount of nappies you use, whether that's in terms of washing and washing detergent for cloth nappies or throwing disposable ones away.

"We have accidents just like everybody but we use them a lot less."

The couple recommend starting in summer when your baby can wear less clothing as it's easier to clean potential "accidents".

Montana continued: "The most common question we get is do you have to be stay-at-home parents.

"Ideally it does work better if someone is home all the time and committed to this practice."

Tom demonstrated the position he holds Blue in, which is quite like the squat.

While this might not be a method for every family, the couple recommend "giving it a go".

He added: "When we take Blue to the toilet we use the word association to actually reinforce what we're doing.

"We use 'sheshe' for doing a wee and 'poopoo' for doing a number two."
