Today we are pleased to introduce you to EC Simplified, one of our valued Natural Parents Network sponsors.
From our reviewer, Jorje of Momma Jorje:
A lot of people are intimidated by Elimination Communication or think it seems like too much work. EC Simplified lays it out for you – it’s easy when you know where and when to start! The book is chock full of tools to help you get started, get past bumps along the way, and transition to potty independence.
The EC Simplified site offers a lot of information about elimination communication, in addition to what is available in the book. Purchase the book and gain access to a private forum, including access to the author herself.
The book has received the endorsement of the international non-profit dedicated to informing people about Elimination Communication, DiaperFreeBaby. The author of EC Simplified, Andrea, currently serves as a DiaperFreeBaby Mentor in her area.
No equipment or special clothing is required to start EC with your baby, but there are items that can make it easier. Baby leg warmers, for example, are very popular in the natural parenting, elimination communicating circles.
Have you seen Long Baby Socks? These things are adorable! When your little one gets more mobile and, therefore, slims down, you may find these stay on your baby better than leg warmers.
You can also go to the EC Simplified store to find cloth diapers, potties and cloth wipes. Children in the US don’t potty train, on average, until around age 3. This makes it difficult to find some potty-related items for younger babies. You can find training pants for babies on the EC Gear page.
Get free EC tips by joining Andrea’s newsletter on her site.
Read about scientific reports, traveling with EC, troubleshooting and several other topics as they relate to elimination communication on the ECSimplified Blog.
We try to seek out only products and companies we think you would find
relevant and useful to your life as a natural parent.
