EC While Out + About MiniCourse

Eager (or afraid) to try EC on outings or travel? This'll get you going.

If you have absolutely no clue how to do EC on outings (or you're scared, but really want to try)...

or, you're totally ready to potty on outings (and just need some direction)...

I made this course for you.

If you're just starting, or finally finishing, EC and want to give your baby a super-clear message: we potty everywhere (even on outings)...

or you're going thru a potty pause and want to feel some sense of success with EC (because you've heard outings are easier)...

or you're tired of messy diapers in public places, tired of the waste, and tired of giving your baby mixed messages...

This course is perfect for you.

Yep. I totally get the confusion and fear. I've ECed all 4 of my babies in so many bathrooms, airplanes, vehicles, port-a-potties, and patches of grass and gravel that I can't even keep count.

Now I know how to integrate outings with ease (including when to say "no" to pottying outside of the house) and I'm gonna share it all with you (including soooo many bonus demonstration videos!!).


You can do it, too! Imagine if... could avoid all blowouts in public spaces, period. could drastically downsize your diaper bag (and make it your diaper-free bag). could get over your fear and delay in pottying outside of the house and feel *very* successful at it.

Yes, you can take steps today to bring EC on outings with you, with a deep confidence, in less than one hour of instruction.

Since 2010, I've helped 100,000s of parents start EC with their little ones...and I can tell you that most parents avoid EC on outings at first...but once they try it, they tell me it's super-easy.

Take Bethany, for instance. Here was her email to me:

EC While Out + About MiniCourse

"I watched your video this morning and today has been the best day yet for my EC journey.

 Usually I have my 8 month old in an open vest and no pants in the house. I often miss wees. Well, the video this morning taught me that keeping him in trousers would make it less likely for him to wee willy nilly. My goodness! It's worked a treat today and I haven't had one miss!

I'd like to expand my EC but I'm worried about doing it while out and about. This week we have had 2 dry short car journeys, but it may have been a fluke. I'm not sure exactly what I should do next. Help!"

Maybe you've been in Bethany's shoes. Or are in them right now!

Now for the good news. With my help, Bethany was able to start EC on outings in a solid, successful way. She and her son are now diaper-free on all outings, and proud of it!

If reading Bethany's story resonates with you in any way, let's get you into this course, right away.

4 reasons to do EC on outings:

1. It's easier. Most parents report that doing EC while on outings or during travel was more successful than sitting around trying to do EC at home! (There are reasons for this which I get into inside the course.)

2. It saves time + mess. Cleaning a blowout in a bathroom with no changing table? Terrible. Having your baby poop in the public toilet, instead? Priceless.

3. It's more clear for baby. Yes, you can totally do EC part-time and choose to skip EC on outings. However, doing EC outside of the home will send a crystal-clear message to your baby about where we put our pee and poo.

4. It's good for wrap-up. When you extend EC to the full 24/7, and teach baby how to use the potty everywhere, your child understands that this is the direction we're going in now.

No, I can't make a guarantee that you'll be the most perfect, miss-free, baby-toting mom out there...but taking the steps, TODAY, toward making EC while out and about actually happen is easier than you'd think.

The *magic* in how this course happens

I am a mom (of 6 kids spanning 12 years) - 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)

read, watch,
or listen

truly multimedia

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.

all new

this is all new stuff

If you already have my book, this course takes a deep dive into what's presented there about outings + travel and takes it even further. (If you don't have my book, you'll get a generous coupon within the course itself.)

lean course

because you're busy

You're a busy mom (or dad) 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.

any device

The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.

What media does the course use?

We use video, audio, and written media to deliver this course. You never know what your baby will "allow" you to get done today, so we've got all your various formats covered, and you can use them on any device. We are parents, too! We get it. :)

How long do I have access to the course?

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.

Is this course limited to a certain age range?

Although this course was created for parents who do Elimination Communication (EC) with their babies of ages 0-18 months, the tips can also be applied to potty training with children over 18 months.

Does this course replace your book?

Nope! This course takes a deep-dive into EC while out and about. My book covers the whole big picture, plus all the interlinked areas of doing EC. Go Diaper Free is multimedia, too, and you get a generous coupon for it when you buy any of my minicourses. I want you to be equipped, so def get the book, too!

What type of device do I need / do I need to be tech-savvy?

Since the MiniCourse is hosted on a website, and is responsive to your screen size, you can simply watch/listen/read on any device (and switch between them - we'll save your place). There are specific walk-throughs of how to best view/hear/download things in the course, and I make it 100% easy to navigate. Tech will not be an issue, and if it is, I'm an email away.

What if I am going on a trip next week?

No worries - this course will give you a solid foundation from which to jet-set anywhere. Plane, train, automobile - or just the local store - I've got you covered. This course includes support from me on occasion and a dedicated Certified Go Diaper Free Coach (whom I've trained, myself) in the commenting system on every lecture. You will also be able to mingle and support one another in the comments as a community - one of the best features of these courses!

Will this course cover x, y, or z?

This course is all about getting you comfortable ECing outside of the home. It doesn't cover nighttime, part-time, or pauses in much detail (although these things are mentioned) - we've got other courses in the Academy for those subtopics of EC, plus courses on EC completion, potty training, birth, and much much more. This particular course is a super-specific MiniCourse - it is chock-full of all things outings/travel. Enjoy!

What's up with the bundle deal?

If you think you're going to need at least 4 of the 7 MiniCourses at some point along your EC journey, you should definitely get the bundle of courses now. The 7 bundled MiniCourses are actually the top 7 EC challenges that my audience ranked in a survey I recently gave. If you don't need one now, you are certain to need it later!

EC While Out + About MiniCourse

"Yesterday we were out and I took my little one to a public restroom to give her a chance to potty. She went, and as we were putting her dry training pants back on, a couple of panicked women came into the restroom with a 1 year old who'd had a major blowout. She and her stroller were covered and the moms were trying to figure out how to clean it up.

I was so thankful that my 7 month old tells me when she needs to potty so we haven't had a similar experience. Thank you again for the insight and encouragement. Your hard work and dedication have helped us tremendously!"
