Have you ever (ironically) stayed up all night wondering whether you should be doing nighttime EC with your baby?
Do you feel surges of guilt when your baby wakes up with a sopping wet diaper, whereas during the day you are on it with EC?
Or, worse, do you feel strongly about extending EC to sleep time but have no idea how to begin (or whether it will mess up that picture-perfect sleep)?
You are not alone.
One in every three parents who do infant pottying grapple with nighttime EC and generally feel (pardon the pun) in the dark.
I totally get it. I've been there, myself. I've gone from no EC at night to EC every 2 hours at night with my own 4 babies, and I've helped countless parents make this decision for themselves.
You can figure this out, too! Imagine if...
...you knew that what you're doing at night is the RIGHT thing for your baby at this age
...when you did attempt to potty at night, it worked effortlessly
...you felt genuinely good about the care you give your baby during sleep time.
Yep, you can absolutely take steps toward optimal nighttime EC over the span of an hour's time, and start implementing what you've learned tonight.
Since 2010, I've helped 10,000s of parents start EC with their little ones...and I can tell you that 1/3 of parents are confused about nighttime EC.
Take Mary, for instance. Here was her struggle:
"My 11 month old daughter pees and poos in the potty most of the time, and is doing so well with it that she wakes up from sleep when she has to go. This may seem great, but I feel like she sometimes doesn’t get all the sleep that she should because of this. At night she goes back to sleep after peeing, but during the day, naps are over if she has to wake up and pee. I am having a hard time figuring out the balance between these two very important needs – EC and sleep."
Maybe you've been in Mary's position. Or are in the same boat right now!
Now for the good news. With my help, Mary was able to find balance in when to offer the potty, and when not to offer, during the sleeping hours.
If reading Mary's story seems like I grabbed it directly from your situation, let's get you enrolled in this course, pronto.
3 things you've got to know:
1. Nighttime EC is an art, not a science. You are not good at knowing when to potty (or not) during sleep because no one ever taught you this before (and how great you'll feel when you have the confidence to choose, without the guilt).
2. Nighttime EC is directly related to sleep - and without that sleep, your baby is a mess. And so are you. I don't need to explain how important it is to get the whole big nighttime picture under control. It is essential to your baby's day-to-day well-being.
3. Battling about pottying at night can put a wrench in your daytime EC success. Baby will push you away if you're not clear about his night needs, so you'll want to know when to skip the night potty situation, too, so daytime EC remains all good.
No, there isn't one-size-fits-all solution to night EC. But you can absolutely take steps TODAY to come into balance with your baby's sleep + EC needs.
Introducing the Nighttime EC 101 MiniCourse...
In the Nighttime EC 101 MiniCourse, you will learn how to create a nighttime pottying routine that works for your current situation (whether that means full-on or none-right-now).
By the time the hour's up, you'll learn everything you need to know, whether or how much to do, and be ready to implement changes tonight.
Now, let's move into more details, shall we?
First, we'll cover whether nighttime EC will work for you right now and how to decide, what gear you'll need, and getting into the right mindset.
Next, we'll cover a hodge-podge of information, including normal vs. abnormal sleep + waking, night signals, and night potty techniques.
Finally, we'll cover setting up the environment for success (Montessori-style), the small shifts that can make a big impact, and troubleshooting this topic, so you're not left hanging.
By the time the hour's up, you'll be more clear than you've been in days (or months).
Sound good so far?
Let's take a peek at the curriculum next.
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 nighttime EC and takes it even further. (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 trying to do night EC!
