Now at a reduced reward price ($355 to $298) for the Kickstarter community, a set of bamboo cotton nappies to assist with toilet training in a more sustainable way. Checkout our new bamboo nappy set photo below.

***New***

My mother toilet trained my children from birth successfully without using disposable nappies. Her technique involved holding infants to toilet safely several times a day. It required experience of proven traditional cues, effective holds and patience. 

I thought to myself: If only we had a special device to hold our babies and toilet train like my mum... so I came up with the idea of an Ecobabyloo.  I made prototypes, researched and trialled the Ecobabyloo with Australian families.

In my trials, babies aged 7 weeks to 3 months old happily used the Ecobabyloo, busting the myth that children are only ready to be toilet trained at age 2 or more!

Say Hello! to the Ecobabyloo

We love the Ecobabyloo!
We love the Ecobabyloo!

The Ecobabyloo is the world's first eco-friendly toilet for children made from child-safe and recyclable materials. Washable, durable and appropriately sized, it makes toilet time for babies and carers clean, simple, fun, effective, interesting and convenient.

We designed the EcoBabyloo to provide carers with the tools to teach kids good toileting habits through daily interaction and play to make toilet training a life enhancing experience of treasured moments for both.

Prior to the 1960s children were toilet trained by age 2. With the rise in use of disposable nappies, being toilet trained is now only by 3 or 3 and a half. We want parents to be free of having to clean poo-ey stinky bottoms of resistant children for years and babies to enjoy being nappy free by age 1-2. We believe that with the Ecobabyloo, this can be the natural, practical, hygienic, economic and sustainable way of meeting children’s toileting needs happily now and for future generations.

It’s our responsibility to care

Sadly, the art and joy of toilet training babies from birth is being lost. Most babies are put into disposable nappies, toilet training only started around 18 months or more with some children attending schools in disposable nappies at age 5, 6 or even 7 to 11!

Toileting is a basic need for all humans, including for babies. If we must eat, we must toilet! We know puppies and kittens can be toilet trained but aren’t sure why people believe that babies can’t be.

We invented the Ecobabyloo package to help parents assist their babies enjoy learning about toilet training from birth and be nappy-free by age 1-2 and not be exposed to the myriad of problems suffered by children wearing nappies, such as nappy rash, sore bottoms, hiding, stigmatisation, urinary tract infections or stool toileting refusal (need for a nappy to toilet) 

A child using 6 one-use throw away nappies a day for 2.5 years will use 6000 nappies in 2.5 years. The pulp of 4.5 trees would have been harvested and 2 tonnes of poo & wee laden nappy waste & pollutants caused by its manufacture, transportation & burial created.

Embracing and improving on proven effective traditional techniques, the Zero Waste Ecobabyloo enables babies to be toilet trained by age 1-2, significantly increasing nurturing toilet training responsiveness, effectiveness and reducing nappy waste, landfill and pollution issues

Change through innovation

The Ecobabyloo is an ergonomically designed toilet for babies. It has a scooped high back with sides which ensures that a baby’s head and body are safely supported during toileting from 2-3 months.

The specially designed leg-ramp, upwards-sloping footrest ensures a baby’s legs are in the best position for toileting.

The hands-free Ecobabyloo, its face-to-face interactive design allows carers to communicate effectively when cueing, signalling, responding and so forth. It comes with a stainless steel basin for waste, so easy to clean when used with a little water, that also makes sweet tinkling sounds during toileting to help baby discover their source of wee & poo and carer know when toileting is in progress!

Free with the Ecobabyloo is a USB stick containing an original musical album called Toileting Tunes, two documentaries, articles and videos with tips and tricks for successful toilet training to independence.

This is a wonderful package, which enables carers to meet a baby’s toileting and toilet training needs enjoyably, healthily, hygienically, economically, environmentally and sustainably.

Bamboo Nappies  ***NEW***

Bamboo cotton nappies with an Ecobabyloo can assist you toilet train in a more sustainable way.  Now at a reduced reward price ($355 to $298) for the Kickstarter community, a set of bamboo nappies with the Ecobabyloo.

Thank you for your support.

Risks and challenges

We need your support to help educate more parents and carers about how toilet training can improve infant health and well being and reduce dependence on disposable nappies. In order to do this, we need to develop suitable educational resources and provide parents and carers with effective tools.

We want to bring the Ecobabyloo to Australia and to the rest of the world, but really need support in order to spread awareness of the innovation's existence and its wonderful benefits for children, their families, their communities and their environment. The logistics of production, warehousing and international shipping of the Ecobabyloo in its averagely large Box is costly and a major challenge but this is offset by its once off, highly economic purchase and usage which can then be passed on to siblings or other babies compared with years of buying costly one-use throw away nappies, wipes and nappy rash creams for use by only one baby.

Your support and usage will help launch awareness of the EcoBabyloo's innovation to solve current child health care, landfill and pollution problems, its multiple benefits and usefulness as an effective, convenient globally sustainable nurturing cum educational, fun baby toilet training, hygienic resource for use by all parents/carers and for the Ecobabyloo's much more widespread distribution and availability by other online and shop retailers.

    The Ecobabyloo is an ergonomically designed and unique “Gift of Joy” for any child and their parents or caregivers - Its features and benefits

    * Having an EcoBabyloo means: Huge savings of money on disposable nappies, savings on stress required to clean pooey stinky bums. Teaching baby the right way to toilet and its recyclable, hygienic & so convenient for toilet training baby! Its so much more clean and fun for baby and you!

    * Its innovative leg rest & ramp places baby in a unique position most effective for inducing the release of poos & wees if baby has one to remove.You now have an effective toilet for baby. Small Babies when trained traditionally first, know how to use the EcoBabyloo and when they want to release their waste, will automatically still themselves to do so and by using it repeatedly, they learn that the EcoBabyloo is the toilet for releasing their waste

    * It has the advantage of sitting the baby without baby being shaken or moved accidentally. This is great because accidental movements can cause the closure of sphincter muscles prematurely causing an incomplete release especially during wees.

    * The design of an ergonomic high backrest, sides, upwards sloping footrest supports a 2-3 month old infant safely in a comfortable sitting, squatting position for toilet training to independence at age 1-2+. The EcoBabyloo enables mums and grandmas to be relieved of the need to hold a growing heavy baby several times everyday for toilet training when using the traditional way.

    * The Ecobabyloo’s allows for face to face interaction, responsive feedback, discovery learning and wonderfully effective communication with their carer. You can enjoy many treasured moments of your baby's success together...Unlike the traditional hold where baby faces the same direction as you and baby cannot see your face, the EcoBabyloo enables baby to see you and respond to your cues and expressions and babies as small as 7 to 12 weeks can smile after they have relieved themselves and even gurgle in delight in response to your praise!

    * A deep comfortable seat which enables a small infant to sink into it safely during toilet training. The comfortable seat features a small pear shaped hole which provides the best position and great support for hygienic removal of their waste without creating a mess.

    * It comes with a detachable, easy to clean soft cushion for use by infants.

    * It has a deep light stainless steel basin which when used with a little water makes cleaning easy. It makes sweet tinkling noises and alerts care givers and a baby of their poo and wee sounds and progress when in use. This feature is very useful as a wonderful teaching aid. Babies learn where their poos and wees are coming from and they delight in your response to the sounds made by them. Toddlers who are absorbed in play find that carrying the light deep basin and emptying their own waste into an adult toilet and flushing away of the waste to be a much enjoyed experience for them. The careful removal of the basin from under the EcoBabyloo to be emptied is so great for the development of motor and manipulative skills and the ability to then flush their waste hygienically away not only teaches but is very good for developing their confidence and self esteem.

    *Besides being the world’s best ergonomic toilet for babies, the EcoBabyloo is multi purpose. It can be used as a flexible and non restrictive chair for general interaction with mums or families, is much loved for discovery learning of toys, books, body parts such as toes and feet, to rest & look around as well as a chair support for bathing and showering! This makes it the most amazing multi-use much loved gift in the world for a baby!

    We thank you very much for your wonderful support of our amazingly beneficial, intrinsically valuable Ecobabyloo posted to you in its informative gift box. Our thanks to you for gifting a mum and her baby or for nurturing your own baby and wish you many treasured moments of joy with baby during toilet training as the hands that rock the cradles nurture our world.
