EC vocabulary and ec(bonics): some terms that will become your new slang


Funny how there are so many little sub-languages out there. This one is sure to entertain...and hopefully will clear up some of the questions in your mind.

What is a miss? What is a pottytunity? What exactly is a peenie-weenie??

One of our community's lovely families has also developed their own personal language - and they call it (ec)bonics. That's toward the end of the podcast and I think you might just like it. :)

This week's episode of our EC podcast covers the vocabulary that most people use when talking about doing EC/infant potty training with their babies.

You will hear:

  • 15 of the most common terms used in the practice of EC
  • Tips on what to say and do when you have a miss, misguess, or catch
  • The real difference between EC, "late start EC," and early potty training
  • A brand new take on talking about EC
  • Plus much more...

I love what I do and try to make a difference in one baby or parent's life every single day. (And I love, love, love, mango gelato.)
