Parent’s Intuition: Part 4 of when does my baby need to pee and the final of four ways to know it’s time to go


This week's show is Part 4 of 4 of our series "When does baby need to pee?" In past sessions, we've discussed the other 3 Roads to Potty Time:

1. Baby's Signals

2. Baby's Natural Timing or Rhythm

3. Generic or Common Timing

and this is the final piece to the puzzle:

4. Your Intuition (this sesh!)

I love this episode because it's simple, brief, and to the point. I give lots of examples about what your intuition might look or feel like. And we look at some alternatives for those of you who aren't particularly intuitive by nature. :)

You will hear:

  • What potty intuition is
  • Several examples of intuition in action
  • What to do if you don't have it
  • How to access intuition via an older child, your husband or partner, or whomever helps you care for your baby
  • Letting go of the need to be your child's "subject matter expert"
  • Plus much more...

About Andrea Olson

I'm Andrea and I spend most of my time with my 6 children (all under 12 yo) 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.)

    Yes! I have had that funny feeling many times. I initally ignored it, only to be rewarded with a puddle or cloth diaper to clean! But as time went on I got better to tuning in and listening to it.
