LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE

Did you know babies can potty from birth? I had no idea until my guest Andrea Olson from @godiaperfree came on the podcast to educate us about Elimination Communication (EC). EC is a gentle, non-coercive way to respond to a baby’s natural hygiene needs...and Andrea is the diaper free GURU here to teach us how and why!

Just like babies have the desire and ability to feed themselves solid food when the time is right, babies are instinctual when it comes to pottying. Andrea argues that pottying your baby can make baby-raising cleaner, easier, MUCH more connected to you plus it’s better for the environment. If you think a self-feeding baby sounds exciting, I think you’ll love hearing about your self-pottying baby’s potential too!
