Potty Time Master MiniCourse

Learn when it's time to potty baby (even if she doesn't signal).

If you’ve been doing EC for any amount of time and, for some reason, you can't quite get the timing down of when to offer the potty to your baby, this deep dive is for you.

Maybe your baby stopped signaling at around 4 or 5 months old. Maybe she never signaled in the first place.

You might be feeling like you're no good at EC, and never will be. (But you really believe in EC and really want it to work!)

Despite your best efforts and doing everything right, you just can't seem to catch a darn pee. Your baby won't signal. Ugh.

What is up with that?

You need to figure out when to potty your baby or you may give up (if you haven't already).

You've been told that EC is about listening to your baby's signals to potty - but you've got nothin'.

Yep. I get it. And I've been there. But I didn't stay there for very long. Now, I know that there are 4 ways to know baby has to go, and better yet, how to use each of the 4 at various points in my babies' development.


You can do it, too! Imagine if...

...your baby finally started signaling. no longer felt clueless about when to offer. could start feeling like an EC success, in tune with your baby.

Yes, you can take steps today to gain potty time prowess, in just about an hour of instruction.

Since 2010, I've helped 100,000s of parents start EC with their little ones...and I can tell you that 42% of our community listed "not knowing when to potty" as their #1 problem.

Take Rebecca, for instance. Here was her struggle:

Potty Time Master MiniCourse

"I don’t think my baby (6 months old) gives cues when she needs to pee (although she does for poo). Is that common? Or am I just not paying enough attention? Or did we inadvertently diaper train her during the weeks we were traveling when she was a newborn? We just use timing to catch pees."

Maybe you've felt like Rebecca is feeling. Or are feeling that way right now!

Now for the good news. With my help, Rebecca did not give up, she learned that this is completely normal, and she relied on the other 3 roads to potty time until baby started to signal at around 14 months old.

If reading Rebecca's story sounds eerily familiar, let's get you into this course, pronto.

2 reasons why you must solve this, now:

1. Being uncertain of when to potty your baby can actually cause a potty pause to happen. It causes over-offering and the smell of fear/uncertainty that your baby will certainly exploit. We definitely don't want a pause. (If you have one, get the potty pause course, too, or the bundle).

2. If you wait for your baby to begin signaling before you can get serious about EC, you will wait forever. Most babies stop signaling when they become mobile (4-8 months or so). There are other things going on (developmentally) that take precedence - AND, if they were not wearing clothing and able to potty outside, they'd be independent by then and have no need to signal to you! It is NORMAL. So, to be successful at EC, you must learn all 4 ways to know baby needs to pee.

No, there isn't a "magic button" you can push to make your baby start signaling. But taking the steps, TODAY, toward knowing when to potty is easier than you'd think.

Introducing the Potty Time Master MiniCourse...

A deep into how to start EC with your newborn baby.

I created the Potty Time Master MiniCourse to help you learn, on a deep level, the 4 ways to know your baby needs to pee...all in a little over an hour's time.


Now, let's see what's inside.

, we'll learn, one by one and on a deeper level, the 4 roads to potty time - signals, natural timing, transition times, and intuition.

Next, we'll look at how the 4 roads play together to tell you when to offer a pottytunity (yay, math!).

Finally, we'll cover several troubleshooting topics that will free you from the common pitfalls that others in our community have faced.

By the time the hour's up, you'll be leaps and bounds further along than you've been in days (or months).

Sound like a breath of fresh air?

Does this course replace your book?

Nope! This course takes a deep-dive into potty time. 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).

This course is all about solving potty time. It doesn't cover nighttime, part-time, pauses, or out and about 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 potty time. Enjoy!
