If you're expecting a new baby or have a newborn already, you have a leg-up over the 90% of people who find out about EC "too late."
Starting EC at birth is generally easier than starting later, it's incredibly fulfilling, and it's the best way to ensure you'll stick with EC over the long haul.
Starting at birth requires a complete paradigm shift. It will change your view of baby-raising, forever!
And, contrary to popular belief, starting at birth is not hard (if you know what to do).
But. Andrea. How do I do it?
You've heard that mothers in indigenous cultures potty their babies from birth - it makes complete sense - and you wonder if it can ever happen to you....
(I mean really, can this happen for you, too?)
You've got a strong belief that EC is right for your family...if only you could figure out how to start (and cut through all the overwhelm of becoming a new parent).
Yep. I get it. I've been there 4 times. I've helped 10,000s do the same. Now, I know exactly how to start at birth, and better yet, how to give baby the best overall start possible.
You can do it, too! Imagine if...
...you felt the pride of catching your baby's first tarry poo outside of his diaper.
...you felt an immediate, deep connection with your baby by supporting her hygiene needs.
...you could confidently embark on a path of showing your baby where his refuse goes...from day one of his life.
You betcha. You can learn exactly how to start from birth, and stick with it, in less than one hour of instruction.
Since 2010, I've helped 10,000s of parents start EC with their little ones...and I can tell you that the majority of people don't start EC at birth because they simply feel overwhelmed and under-informed.
Take Kelly, for instance. Here was her struggle:
"My son Samuel was a VERY fussy baby the first 4 ½ months of his life. I ended up giving up on EC because we were just overwhelmed in general with all the crying and terrible sleeping. I could probably start now because we are very in tune with each other and his cues are much more distinct, but when he turned six months old I started back at my part-time job. I really wanted to learn this when I was at home full-time with my son."
Maybe you've been in Kelly's position. Or you're in it right now!
Now for the good news. With my help, Kelly was able to start successful EC with Samuel at 7 months old. The better news? She has since had a new baby and was able to start at birth with her through the help of this course.
If reading Kelly's story sounds like I'm inside your mind, let's get you into this course, right away.
3 reasons why you should start at birth:
1. Newborns pee and poo less frequently. Their systems take more time to get running. The first couple of days of life are prime opportunities to learn about them (and stare at their cute faces!).
2. Newborns are primal, very vocal, and excellent at signaling their potty needs (signals usually stop at 4-5 months old). You may never get this clear of communication again (until they are toddling and talking!).
3. You have time on your side. You're in your recovery period, your BabyMoon, your downtime, maternity leave, at this time anyway. (And, yes, even if you go back to work later on, part time EC is usually more successful than full-time!).
Yes, having a new baby is overwhelming. Period. But doing EC from day one can make you feel super successful (when other parenting things just aren't coming naturally!). You can become equipped, TODAY, to make this your reality, in less than one hour.
Introducing the Baby Meets Potty minicourse...
I created the Baby Meets Potty MiniCourse to help you start EC on day 1 with a brand new newborn baby (up to 12 weeks old)...exactly how I've taught new parents in person...all in less than an hour's time.
You'll learn how to prepare for EC before baby comes, the easiest ways to start, and how EC can seamlessly fit into your new baby flow.
Now, let's look at what I'll teach you.
First, I'll help you get into the right mindset, orient you to why EC works, and share what you can expect.
Next, I'll share the 2 simplest ways to start (not found in my book), lots of new-baby-specific EC how-to's, and the 10 primary newborn pottytunities.
Finally, we'll cover outings, how to dress baby, and several troubleshooting topics suited specifically to your situation.
By the time the hour's up, you'll be fully equipped to dive right into potty baby when s/he arrives (or today, if baby is already here!).
Sound perfect to you?
Let's check out the curriculum, shall we?
Here is a sneak-peek at the curriculum inside this course:
The *magic* in how this course happens
I am a mom (of 4 kids under 6 years old) - and I get it.
This minicourse is set up exactly the way I would prefer to learn, as a busy mom with very little bandwidth for time-consuming luxuries + over-the-top experiences.
Here's what I've planned, with you in mind. (Trust me, you need these features to get thru the course, mama/daddy.)
(roll over or click to flip and read the 6 cards below)
This course comes in 3 formats! Video saves your place and autocompletes (because: interruptions!). Audio can be downloaded to your phone or listened to in the course. A full written transcript for those quiet night learning sessions.
this is all new stuff
If you already have my book, this course takes a deep dive into what's presented there about starting at birth and takes it even further. These methods are NOT found in my book, but complement it. (If you don't have my book, you'll get a generous coupon within the course itself.)
because you're busy
You're a busy mom (or dad)...so this course is bite-sized and lean. It only includes what you need to know, and it's all presented as though I'm in your home, coaching you face-to-face.
feel free to device-hop
My learning platform can be accessed from any device, and it *magically* saves your place. So, learn on the toilet (in those rare alone moments), while folding laundry, while at the playground, or all 3 at once!
support starts here
You'll have conversations with other students, a Certified Go Diaper Free Coach or two, and occasionally me, throughout the course with our handy commenting system (read: support!)...because you don't know anyone who does EC, and certainly no one starting right at birth!

"I still have the email I typed through my postpartum fog to Andrea, telling her of my intimidation to begin pottying my son. She responded with such warmth and encouragement. She said to just 'try part time for now,' I got up from reading that reply, took my son to the sink and the next three tries in a row got poo and pee in the sink! I was hooked."
