Certified Coach | Serving Vienna, Austria
I first heard about EC when my daughter was born but it all sounded too complicated for me and as a first-time mom, I felt I already had enough to cope with for now. But I really liked the idea and kept reading, until a friend recommended to me Andrea's 'tiny potty training book'. I read it when my daughter was 9 months old and started her program right away. It was so easy to follow and hadn't I read the 'wrong' book (because her 'potty training' instructions are for baby 18 months and up) I would have had struggled less. I should have read her 'Elimination Communication' book; but still - at 16 months, I stopped thinking about the potty most of the time, which is Andrea's signal for completion. And I've enjoyed so much, not having to change diapers anymore and carry around a changing bag and I really loved the fact that I can actually respond to her elimination needs, same as I respond to her needs of eating or resting. This motivated me to whisper around her tricks and tips and in 2016 I did her go-diaper-free-coach program, which provided me with so many more great resources to help other parents have an easy, stress-free and quick potty training experience.
