Last vid we spoke about when you can stop using diapers. That video is here if you missed it.
Today we're going to talk about when you can expect to be done with EC.
This is called completion, graduation, and being finished, already.
Elimination Communication does *not* have to drag on. It should be completed, at some point, because we all find pride in mastery (especially toddlers!). There is an end in sight (and one full of happy smiles and capable bodies!).
This video is only 2.5 minutes long...you definitely have time for this. You can do it. Watch now - When you can expect to be done with EC:
- the average age range for EC completion, both day and night
- my plan for baby Branson (now 8 months old), day and night
- whether starting from birth helps you to finish sooner
- whether doing EC barely-part-time with a mobile baby will do you any good, and,
- whether starting with a 12-18 month old would even work (I have a blog post on that, too, here).
And you'll see baby B in this video...he's a wee tiny one in this one b/c I recorded it many moons ago. :)
Please comment below with when *you* completed EC...or when you expect to!
(And if you're in the middle of a "drag on" type situation, write that. We can help.)
Looking forward to seeing where everyone is...it's truly an honor to bear witness to your experiences. This is SUCH a special practice to share with your baby, even if super-duper part-time.
PS - You do know that I made a bite-sized minicourse on this topic, yes? It's called Wrapping Up EC and it covers 2 of the 3 methods of wrap-up with your LO: pure EC and hybrid EC/PT. Loads and loads of bonus footage, including how we prepared our child to go to preschool without diapers for the first time (The 3rd method is a potty training experience with my PT book.) Just in case ya didn't know...there it is. :)
