Getting back on track with EC [after falling off the wagon]


So many parents completely fall off the EC wagon during months 8-14 when baby is becoming mobile, and mom and dad are getting back to "normal" life and work.

This is 100% normal!

However, if you're in this situation, you may feel like you've failed, or like a loser, or completely overwhelmed. "How in the world can I start EC again? Everything has changed!"

Don't worry. I'm going to give you a surefire way to get EC back on track, quickly, and in audio no less.

In today's Go Diaper Free Podcast episode, I cover:

  • the best baby wardrobe for getting back in touch with her natural potty timing
  • how to log your baby's natural timing for poo and pee
  • the two events you should be logging from
  • how to know you've collected enough information
  • choosing your potty commitment (part-time or full-time)
  • how to begin again, anew.

First, you'll need somewhere to keep track of things during observation.

About Andrea Olson

I'm Andrea and I spend most of my time with my husband and 5 children (newborn to 8 years old) and the rest of my time teaching other new parents how to do Elimination Communication with their 0-18 month babies. 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.)

    Hi Andrea
    I was looking to get a copy of your observation log. I’ve submitted my name and email 3x and it’s been almost 2 hours – should it take that long to come to my email? And yes I have checked my junk mail as well…?
