Book Author Laurie Boucke
Last time on the Go Diaper Free Podcast I shared the first part of my interview with author Laurie Boucke, the woman whom I consider to be the absolute trailblazer in bringing infant potty training to the Western culture back in the late 70's and onward.
Laurie has been an EC mentor for over 30 years, and in this episode we discover her best advice for those who are new to Elimination Communication, or having difficulty with it.
We will also learn how her book came about in a time when there simply was no Internet, and how Laurie decided to frame her EC methodology (hint: it has to do with in-arms and sitting phases).
She also shares what age is best to start Elimination Communication, and what age is best to start potty training (and how age can determine which potty training method to use).
Resources mentioned in this podcast include her website and DVD at http://pottywhispering.net, her book Infant Potty Training: A Gentle and Primeval Method Adapted to Modern Living by Laurie Boucke (available here), and my book, Go Diaper Free, which Laurie applauds as the first ever multimedia guide to the practice.
I hope you enjoy today's episode with Laurie Boucke. And stay tuned for our next episode where I'll cover EC Potty Pauses and Resistance. Certainly the hottest topic we've got. Subscribe on iTunes so you don't miss a single session.
