BOOKS THAT WILL TRULY INSPIRE YOU

Go Diaper Free: A simple handbook for elimination communication

This is the book I most highly recommend...because I wrote it. You see, when I was just starting EC with my first son in 2010, I had a really hard time visualizing what I should be doing. Go Diaper Free is the first multimedia guide to starting, troubleshooting, and completing EC. (for 0-18 month babies)

The Tiny Potty Training Book: A simple guide for non-coercive potty training

And, naturally, when people started finding me later than the 0-18 month window of usual EC, I decided to research and write a book for those with 18 month and older children. Non-coercive, no rewards systems, just straight-up let's potty train gently and quickly. This purely potty training book is based on my Hybrid EC Program in Go Diaper Free, but exclusively written for toddlers over 18 months in age.

The Continuum Concept: In search of happiness lost

Jean Liedloff did not intend on writing a parenting handbook when she reported her experience of living with Stone Age natives in South America...but what she ended up doing was changing millions of parents' lives around the globe over decades of time. This book is one that has informed my parenting in a big way, and although I have adapted it to my modern lifestyle and added balance where I can, it stands alone as an incredibly insightful look into natural and species-specific child-rearing.

Mean Moms Rule: Why doing the hard stuff now creates good kids later

If you are the caregiver of a baby, toddler, small human, child, or the like, you would do well to read Denise's awesome guide to setting up discipline in your family the right way from the start. She says "start as you mean to go on"...and she means it. And, no, you don't have to be mean before, during, or after reading this book...Denise certainly isn't!

Simplicity Parenting: Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids

I adore Kim John Payne. In this book, he helps those of us suffering from "baby stuff creep" and information overload to simplify life for ourselves, our children, and our homes. I've learned and implemented so much from this book, and I hope it inspires you, too.

COURSES THAT ACTUALLY WORK

The Potty Time Master Course

For those of you who are not great at detecting baby's signals, or knowing when to offer the potty to your baby, I created this comprehensive video course to help you master the "when" behind potty time. Includes hands-on exercises and worksheets, along with bite-sized video guidance from yours truly.

8 more courses are on their way...

Over the months in 2017 I plan to release 8 more mini-courses to help you troubleshoot, with video guidance and special worksheets, several of the most sought-after EC topics, including nighttime EC, EC while out and about, wrapping up EC, tackling an EC potty pause, and flagship courses in both EC and potty training. You can go ahead and join our Academy as a new student and I'll notify you when the new courses become available to the public.

GEAR AND CLOTHING FOR EVERY AGE

Tiny Undies: Small Underwear for EC

When my first son was 10 months old and freshly out of diapers, I could not find underwear that fit him here in America. The Gerber training pants (size 18 mos) just fell right off. Then I traveled to Thailand and found some! After a few years' time, I decided to manufacture them myself. 100% cotton, gender-neutral, sweatshop-free, sizes 6 months to 5T. I think you'll love them.

Tiny Trainers: 100% cotton training pants (that actually work)

Well, you know how I am by now! I can't help myself but to make ECing a better and better experience for all new parents. After I created Tiny Undies I continued to get requests from parents whose kids still had misses, accidents, and pre-pees, and what about ECing while on outings? So, I developed Tiny Trainers in sizes 6 months to 3T - and lemme tell you - they actually work to hold a whole pee from hitting the floor! Double-layered cotton core, 100% cotton shell, and gender-neutral, sweatshop-free, the works.

Tophat Potty Bowl (newborn potty for EC)

For pottying newborn babies up to about a year in age, a tophat potty is essential. Add a cozy to the top because babies don't like the way the plastic feels (and it blocks spray!). These are a rare find and this link will be updated when stock runs out at various shops around the US. Get 'em while they're around.

BecoPotty - Biodegradable mini potty for EC

I like the BecoPotty because it is low to the floor, and it can be planted in the garden once your mini potty days are over. If you can find the older model, I personally prefer it, but the newer model is also great.

Wool Puddle Pads and Wool Soaker Shorts

Jenay's shop in California is known for high quality, low cost, often repurposed wool puddle pads and wool soaker shorts. I highly recommend checking her out.

Best Cloth Diaper Back-up for Elimination Communication

For right now, I love the Grovia cloth diaper covers. (In a few months, my tinyundies.com store will be carrying TinyBums, a line of bamboo terry diaper covers that is divine!) Til then, try the other two above, just the shell, and stick a trifolded prefold in the middle for a super-quick, environmentally-friendly cloth diaper "back-up" for elimination communication. For a Sumo-style backup (see my book for more info), use a diaper belt and a trifolded prefold in a slightly larger size...this is used for observation and can come in great when trying to get EC back on track.

Best Disposable Diaper Back-up for Elimination Communication

I have ECed 4 children from birth (including my newest baby) and I must say that most babies will pee in a Pampers or Huggies diaper and not blink an eyelid. But, put them in a Seventh Generation Disposable Diaper (the original brown ones or the new animal print ones, both similar and effective), and they will signal better. Simply put, 7th Gen dipes feel wet inside when they're wet, so they are the best disposable for potty training and/or Elimination Communication. Given you'll be using disposables for less than half the average time of 3 years, and you'll re-use a bunch of them, go forth with doing EC with disposables if you choose. (My 2nd was out of diapers at 13 months and we used 7th Gen more than half that time!) Also, their disposable wipes (original formula only) are divine.

Split Pants + Baby Chaps

Popular in China, baby split pants are a discreet item that allow baby to sit and pee without having to manipulate his clothing. Baby chaps are wide open, so you can place a prefold in them or simply clover with a diaper cover for a quick and warmer pottytunity.

GROUPS TO CONNECT YOU

I prefer my own Book Owners' private support group (comes with my book here), the DiaperFreeBaby group, the Elimination Communication group, and all of my Go Diaper Free Certified Coaches' Groups, around the world!
