Over half the world’s babies are potty independent by 1 year old. Ever wonder what people do where diapers aren’t common? In the US alone, before disposable diapers were invented in the 1960’s, 92% of babies were potty independent by 18 months old. Today, the average is 36 months (3 years old) and this keeps increasing every year.

Elimination Communication is a gentle way to respond to your baby’s natural hygiene needs, from as early as birth. Like all mammals, human babies instinctively resist soiling themselves, their sleep space, and their caregivers, and they clearly communicate about it from birth. With EC, we learn baby's signals and natural rhythms and assist them with this process until they naturally gain independence (usually by 9-18 months of age).


Parents who EC use the diaper as a "back-up" instead of a wearable toilet (That is why we call it “Diaper Free”. Free from diaper dependency - this is not about having baby naked all day! 😊). With EC, we tune into what our babies are born asking for, team up to help them use the toilet while they develop motor skills and long-term memory, and eventually teach them how to do it themselves. It's a very natural transition to toilet independence.

Most parents use a diaper backup until baby is 9-16 months old, and the vast majority do EC part-time (to make it convenient to blend with any busy schedule).


Another way to think about it: What did humans do before diapers? And what do humans do in regions where diapers are not commercially available? Babies are extremely instinctual, we can see that they are trying to tell us what they want - beyond eating, sleeping, and staying warm, they also communicate when they need to go potty. 


Learning to communicate with them in this way blends beautifully with gentle/conscious parenting methods.

Potty Training  |         Babies 18 months and up


If you want to help your child be out of diapers once and for all, and you want to learn how to potty train but don't know where to begin, this workshop is for you.

Potty training is a gentle, focused, one-time event that results in your toddler knowing when to go potty, communicating this need, and receiving assistance with the whole toileting process until potty independence is achieved (when your child can do it all by themselves).


The way I teach potty training is by learning about your child, teach them, and help them wrap up the process - offering a new way of independence. We, the parents, initiate this training when WE are ready (not the child). They are able when you are ready. 


Potty training should never involve external motivation like candy, sticker charts, or punishment.


Going to pee is a natural event. Putting the pee in the right container is a learned event. Potty training your child is a  "now we are going in the toilet, not the diaper" moment, and guiding that process should be quick and gentle, yet firm and focused.


In the way I teach this method, potty training can start as early as 18 months. For earlier ages, I recommend starting with my Bleyjulaust Uppeldi workshop. The key is to start - because the older a child gets, the more difficult potty training becomes.

How long does potty training typically take?

Most parents are finished with the potty training process in an average of 7 days, without force, candy, or stickers. Then, most parents complete potty independence in small, customized steps over the following days, weeks, and months (such as taking their clothes down, etc.).

What you will learn in this workshop:

  • How to start and finish potty training your child

  • Simple, respectful, and intuitive approach

  • Do’s and don’ts of the process

  • How to reach potty independence 

  • Follow up after the workshop

  • Special discount on EC products from
