Pros: Can be used for any stage of ECing, easy to read and understand, makes the distinction between ECing full time, part time, or infrequently

Cons: Author seems to assume you would start ECing at around 6 months, however they still talk about ECing newborns

I found this book at my local library and I had to read it. The author talks about her journey in discovering and practicing EC, and it is very accessible to read. The author also describes EC through many different stages, so it is very helpful no matter how old your child is. They also discus the many different frequencies of ECing, and encourages the reader to do it as much or as little that suites their life. Overall a great book. I will probably loan it out again, closer to my due date, so my husband can read it too!

The Diaper-Free Baby: The Natural Toilet Training Alternative
Description:

Imagine infants free from painful diaper rash, new parenthood without thousands of dollars wasted in diapering costs, toilet training that is natural and noncoercive, and, most important, happier babies and parents As Christine Gross-Loh reveals in her progressive, enlightening book, all this is possible and more. Infants are born with the ability to communicate their need to "go," just as they communicate hunger or sleepiness. Gross-Loh, a mother of two children who were diaper-free at eighteen and fifteen months, uses the tenets of "elimination communication," or EC, to teach parents how to identify and respond to their baby or toddler's natural cues. Unlike the all-or-nothing approach of some parenting books, The Diaper-Free Baby addresses three categories of parents: full-time, part-time, and occasional EC'ers. Parents can practice EC as much or as little as fits their family and lifestyle. A support group within a book, The Diaper-Free Baby also includes inspiring testimonials throughout every chapter. Parents who have successfully practiced EC identify common struggles, share experiences and problem-solving tips, and provide encouragement for those new to the technique. Their motivational stories together with Gross-Loh's practical advice will appeal to all parents interested in a fresh alternative to traditional toilet training.
