what's EC? New here (new to CD in general) and pretty comfy with most abbreviations but can't figure out EC. Also still don't understand the definition of Hyena - the WAHM, the attributes, or the scavengers among us who can't find them?

TIA fof helping me be more at home

EC = Elimination Communication. A method of "potty training" - although not really. It involves letting your (very young) child go without diapers so that they become aware of their peeing/pooping.

Basic gist - when you put a kid in diapers, you teach them to ignore their body functions. You have to unlearn that when you potty train. EC'ing involves teaching them to be aware of those functions from the beginning.

This has been successfully practiced for thousands of years in countries such as Africa.

There is an EC board that is a sub board of Diapering if you want to find out more.


Hope I summed it up accurately...
