EC Baby on PottyA baby’s cry can mean many things–hunger, sleepiness, boredom, overstimulation, or a release of emotions, to name a few. But did you know that your baby can also signal to you that they need to pee or poop? Have you ever wondered what people did before diapers were invented or what they do in parts of the world where there are no diapers? Did you know that babies can learn to pee and poop in the potty on cue?

In this class we will learn:
• Babies have a natural instinct to not soil themselves, their sleeping area, or their caretakers.
• How to know when your baby needs to pee or poop
• How to potty your baby
• How to start elimination communication at different ages (newborn, crawling, or walking)
• The benefits of elimination communication (including reducing diaper dependence, avoiding potty training struggles, reducing diaper rash and unexplained fussiness, and enhancing your very special and unique relationship with your baby).

By the end of this class you will feel empowered (to teach your baby the important life skill of using a potty), encouraged (that now is the right time), and equipped (with the knowledge you need) to start practicing elimination communication with your baby, whether you choose to do full-time, part-time, days, nights, or just on weekends.

Cost: $15 ($10 for Happy Bambino members)
