Did you know that Elimination Communication Starts Early? (or: why you should not wait to read this book)

Elimination Communication (like offering nap time and breastfeeding) just plain starts early. Babies are born signaling, born wanting to stay hygienic and dry (to not sit in their waste)…born ready! Conventional potty training theoretically begins when baby is “ready,” ranging from 18-36 months of age. You might not be aware that Elimination Communication can start on day one, even in tiny, doable ways (though you may start at any age – 0-18 months – that works for you)….

  • I know first-hand how difficult it is to be pregnant, have a newborn, or just to be living your life, day to day. We live in such a busy time (and are often doing it all alone)! That said…I would not put off starting Elimination Communication…and skipping out on changing most of the poopy diapers makes the up-front work worth it. : ) Whether you choose a part-time or full-time Elimination Communication practice, if you are able to start today (even in some small way), you’ll someday look back and be grateful you did it!

Most new parents regret that they didn’t
start (or learn about) Elimination Communication sooner

Pregnant? Consider this your best research source and read up.

Brand new parent? Start Elimination Communication before baby gets mobile and you both become reliant upon the diaper.

Have a mobile baby (6-12 months)? It’s the perfect time to start reversing that diaper habit.

Have a young toddler (12-18 months)? Many of my readers follow my guidelines for starting Elimination Communication with this age and find great success. It is honestly never too late to start….you’re right on time.

What parents are saying about my book

Just caught a pee based on what I’ve read…can’t wait to read more and get better at this…I find your book so helpful, especially the info about obstacles at 5-6 mos. and 10-14 mos…FANTASTIC!!

Thank you for all your help and support! Sometimes I can’t believe that we are doing this. It has been so much easier than I expected. And I owe it all to you and your book.


Hello Andrea, Thanks so much for helping to make my EC journey simple and beautiful. 

I have read a few books on the subject, but found your book to be the most helpful and practical. Your book and videos have become my EC guide.  I can’t tell you how happy I’ve been to find this way of connecting with my boy. It’s easy for fathers to feel a little left out at times. But EC and baby wearing have made me feel like my wife and my baby know I’m doing everything I can to meet their needs! I love it!

I began when my son was 3 weeks old. I knew about it before I had him but couldn’t ever really figure out how to hold him and just kinda felt weird to potty an infant. Much less talk about it. Since its not the ‘norm’ here in America. So I waited. We started and BAM! he goes the first time! How awesome! I continued and we were doing pretty well then a downward spiral…So I got back online and found YOU and your work. WOW how much that helped!! (Thank You Andrea!) I love every bit of it. Challenging but enjoyable (if you can say that about pottying an infant ???). I’m thankful I stuck with it. What a wonderful bonding experience it is.


I’ve been reading your website and emails for weeks now and trying to do EC… and I have just finally decided to commit and buy your book so I can do it right! Now, I have the Go Diaper Free ebook open on my iPad, and a bare baby bottom on my lap! :) I haven’t read more than a couple pages in one sitting of any book since she was born 3 months ago.

Your book has helped me take the leap into EC.  Had I known it’d be so easy, I’d have started earlier.  My baby is now 13 weeks old.  I started only a week and a half ago and he’s already waiting. I haven’t got much time to read these days…the reason I like your book so much is because it is a much more concise, easier read than all the others out there.

Yeah, but Andrea…What if it doesn’t work for me?

I understand why folks fear that Elimination Communication won’t work for them or their unique baby. The fear lies in the unknown, my friends! But get this: over half of the world’s infants are toilet trained by 1 year old. Elimination Communication does work. For over 200,000 years, in some way or form, it has worked. Elimination Communication works because your infant was born ready.

However, if you don’t decide on a solid starting point and put a tiny bit of effort into it in the beginning (even just one solid day), just like learning to breastfeed together, Elimination Communication might not work so well, and you probably won’t want to maintain it. But you know what? I believe in you. I’ve made it simple for you. Billions of caregivers across the world have blazed the trail. Start Elimination Communication with my book today and you will not regret it.

And remember…toilet training is time-consuming
and lacks convenience no matter when you begin.
You may choose to start today or just wait 2-3 more years…
I’m certain it will still be there once all that time passes. :)
