Certified Coach | Serving Croatia and Surrounding Areas
After months of making it very clear that she does not to intend to soil her diapers with poo, I finally got the message when my daughter was 6 months old. My initial shock and disbelief turned into curiosity and thirst for knowledge, which has since grown into a passion for teaching parents how to navigate Elimination Communication - this incredibly simple, yet to us Westerners, so foreign, alternative to full time diapering.
Now, I am a Go Diaper Free Coach in training, helping parents and their children (regardless of their age) become diaper independent either by practicing EC or through gentle potty training (making the world a greener place in the process).

My experiences with Elimination Communication
I hear about it while I was pregnant and though it was interesting but impractical.. then I tried it when baby was around 20 days old to help with cramps and it worked, but I still though it was not for me. Then baby switched to solids and needed help with the very first solid food bowl movement - EC hold helped there - and baby loved it so much we never looked back or cleaned a poopy diaper again :).
It's something I do in my free time because it fosters communication between baby and carer, empowers baby and reduces the carbon-footprint on the environment.

The Continuum Concept.
It's not nearly as complicated as it sounds and it's much more practical and faster than a diaper change. There are different ways you can practice EC and it doesn't have to be full time and completely diaper free from the start - it's perfectly OK to chose EC dynamic that fits your lifestyle best.. Just take it easy and relaxed, without goals, and see where it leads you. :)
