I help free new parents from diaper dependence by teaching elimination communication and potty training.
Hi. I’m Andrea and I have helped over 5,000 new parents easily understand EC and go diaper-free with their 0-18 month babies - and I've helped toddlers too. After 5 years of parents having access to my books & multimedia resources, I’ve seen firsthand how much it improves their ECing experience and success.
Over 1/2 the world’s babies are potty trained by 1 yr...in the US it‘s 3 yrs. Parents have cared for their babies’ waste for 200,000+ years without reliance on diapers. EC can help you reduce diapers, connect more deeply with your baby, potty train earlier, and empower your baby, who is capable of more than you can imagine!
I offer resources for every person who wants a life with less diapers....
Don't know whether you need EC or Potty Training?
Pick your child's age below...
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.
