#20: Cold Weather EC


Doing cold weather EC? Tricky...so much that sometimes parents just pause their practice til it's warm again, or don't start til spring hits.

I'm posting this podcast episode now that it's finally 18 degrees outside here in Asheville, NC (when I recorded this episode in December it was still a warm 50 degrees!).

Wherever in the world you are, if you find yourself in a cold season or climate, it will be helpful to know of some tricks for using Elimination Communication with your baby in cold weather.

This episode covers just that...and boy do we need some help now that a cold spell is sweeping the nation!

You will learn:

  • how to best dress your baby for cold weather EC, including which layers to choose
  • how to make naked diaper-free observation time possible in your home
  • how to manage infant potty training while out and about
  • surviving cold weather camping with a baby
  • pottying in your parked vehicle
  • why I moved from California to Asheville, North Carolina
  • plus much more...

      Freya, I have never seen these! I don’t think they’re available in the US. I wish they were…they seem very practical. If anyone else knows of their existence in the States, please post a link here. Thanks for sharing these links! xx Andrea
