New to Elimination Communication?
No worries. I can tell you exactly what it is, when to start, and how to do it. If you want to learn more about infant potty training for your 0-18 month baby, you're in the right place.
If you already know EC but are having problems, I can help with that, too.

I help free new parents from diaper dependence by teaching elimination communication, simply and visually.
Hi! My name is Andrea and I have helped over 5,000 new parents easily understand EC and go diaper-free with their 0-18 month babies. I am known for making things simple, visual, and doable.
Did you know that half the babies on Earth are currently potty independent by 1 year of age?
Or that in 1957, 92% of babies in the US were potty trained by 18 months? In two generations this has more than doubled to an average age of 3.
There is another way.
Elimination Communication is a fancy term for what parents do in cultures where there are no diapers. Babies are born signaling their hygiene needs.
Every parent can learn this technique.
We can learn to potty our babies just like we learn how to breastfeed, how to give our baby adequate naptime, and how to keep them warm.
EC is not easily learned through plain text alone. It takes a hands-on, visual approach. A village of support. And a plan.
You can do it, too! All human beings for all of human existence have done it. Your baby is waiting for you to learn how!
But you've got to sit down and learn it. Here's how...

Elimination Communication can be started anywhere from birth to 18 months old...wherever you are today. Whether your little one is a newborn, a mobile baby, or a young toddler, the foundation for EC stays the same. Start EC as soon as you find out about it, right away, as those baby months slip by so fast.
Practicing EC with your child does not have to be done 24/7. As a matter of fact, most of my readers practice part time Elimination Communication with great success!
EC is not suitable for toddlers over 18 months in age. Toddlers need quick and direct mastery. Non-coercive Potty Training (training without rewards, M&Ms, sticker charts, force, anger, etc.) can be started as soon as you, the parent, are "ready." Potty training doesn't have to be messy, lengthy, or emotionally destructive if it's done right.
Early potty training can turn a one year potty training ordeal into a week or two. Don't wait for "readiness signs" - start working toward diaper independence now.
