Moms taking on early potty training

A group of moms are deciding to toss the diapers and potty train their babies early.

Most people start potty training at two, but for some parents that's not soon enough.  

It's called "elimination communication."

Fans of the movement say they can tell when their babies "need to go" by cues and will be able to rush to a toilet or sink in time.

Pediatricians say not so fast.

There could be potential stressors for the baby.

Doctors warn that elimination communication doesn't allow the baby to develop the types of skills they should be developing.  

Moms however enjoy communicating with their babies and cutting the cost of diapers.
