Elimination Communication Workshop (0-18 months) - April 30th
For parents and caregivers of babies ages 0-18 months.
"Elimination Communication" is also called "Infant Potty Training" or the "Infant Hygeine Method"
Crazy concept, isn't it? But did you know, half the babies around the world are potty trained by 12 months (Pediatrics Magazine), yet in the United States, the average age is currently 3 years old (webMD).
This class is for those who are brand new to the idea of Elimination Communication. This class covers all you need to know to get started on your own. This step-by-step class will teach you the process, guide you through it via demos, and have time at the end for Q & A. You will be provided with resources to start as soon as you get home!
Learn about your child’s pottying cues and signals, natural timing and transitional “pottytunities.” This class will increase your ability to communicate with your baby, which will lead to early pottying independence. Elimination Communication can be practiced occasionally, at-home-only, or full-time. This class will introduce how to determine the right pottying journey for your family, and you will leave being able to start immediately!
Here are some reasons why parents choose EC over traditional potty training:
- Cost savings of 50-70% on diapers
- Less diaper waste
- Cleaner skin and no diaper rashes (incl. lower risk of UTIs)
- Potty trained by 18-24 months
