AKA Newborn Potty Training
AKA A diaperless lifestyle
AKA Pee and Poop all over your house…. (just kidding….maybe)
Seriously though I read about this today and had to share.
Blossom’s even doin’ it! “WHOA”
(Ok, the chick that played Blossom, Mayim Bialik)
Sidebar: Did you know Mayim Bialik is a PhD and a lactation educator? Go Her!
Anyway, she wrote:
“Elimination Communication (EC, also known as Natural Infant Hygiene) is the term for learning a baby’s innate inborn cues for pottying, responding to those cues, reinforcing them, and ultimately, helping a child not pee or poop in a diaper. Some people practice EC only at home, some practice it all the time; some start when their babies are newborns, others wait several months. Some people think that people who practice EC are crazy, and some people think that crazy is too harsh a word; preferring instead “totally out of their heads loco bonkers insane in the membrane…”
My first instinct about EC is: This is nucking futs!
But…I want to check those books out and read more on this. Not sure I’d be able to do this while working outside the home….but I want to see what it’s all about.
Do you “EC?” Have you heard of this before? Ever tried it? Gimme tha scoop!
