Elimination Communication is the natural alternative to full-time diapering and conventional toilet training. I've created EC Simplified to help you learn how to do Elimination Communication, aka infant potty training, with your 0-20 month old baby...in a visual, straight-forward manner (that pregnant mamas & new parents can especially appreciate). : )
Over the half the world's babies are potty trained by 1 year old (Pediatrics Magazine).
Yet, in the US, the average age is now over 3 years old! (webMD)
There is another way...
What kind of parents use Elimination Communication?
Well, the spectrum is huge! You don't have to be crunchy or a stay-at-home mom to do EC. You don't have to do it full-time. You can do it with diapers as a back-up. Or you can do it all the time completely diaper-free! Whether you’ve got 3 kids or one on the way, a full time job or 2 hired nannies, you live in an apartment in NYC or on a homestead in Iowa…EC can work for you and I will show you exactly how to do it.
Do you want the natural & gentle alternative to 3 years of diaper dependence and potty training struggles?
Or have you already heard about Elimination Communication and want to start doing it, but don’t know how to start? Then, please read on…
Elimination Communication is a non-coercive, gentle way to potty an infant from birth, following a baby’s natural awareness of its elimination and its desire to keep itself, its caregivers, and its bed dry. Variations of it are practiced by over half the world’s population (and have been for over 200,000 years). EC has been adapted to fit modern lifestyle. It can be done with or without a diaper back-up, full-time or part-time, by anyone, anywhere...and can be started at any age from 0-20 months...babies are born ready!
(If your child is 20-30+ months, do not waste your time with EC! Drop everything and go do my Mama friend, Jamie's, 3 day non-coercive potty training program and be done w/in 3-14 days.)
