Seriously...I tried...but in the end this is why my best friend chose not to EC.
My BFF didn't do Elimination Communication (or early potty training) with her baby. It even hurts to write it, but it’s the truth. Today I’m gonna share that story with you (and hopefully you can take away something useful from it - if you have a similar relationship in your life).
When we have so much knowledge on a subject, we want to share it. I’ve shared about EC and early potty training options with sooo many parents - so why wouldn’t a close friend or family member be open to the idea...especially when most moms I meet tell me "I would have done EC if I had known about it earlier”?
Today’s show is all about the heartache of missing this connection with my BFF, the unanswered offerings, and, most importantly, the core reasons why this new mom really didn’t feel like she could potty her infant instead of relying on the diaper for three years (Kellie bares it all in her honest answers!).
You will learn:
- A few reasons why someone may choose not to do EC
- How having support can make all the difference
- How to support other moms, especially single moms
- How to help support new parents in your town.
