I recently heard about Elimination Communication from my midwife, and am interested in trying it, but don't know anyone who does it. So, does anyone here do it? Full-time? Part-time? How do you start? What's some advice you may have? How do you make it work in a society that is so focused on diapers? I know we won't be going completely diaper-free for a while (my baby is two weeks old), but I like the idea of keeping my youngest daughter aware of her body. My two-year-old is having a really rough time with potty training, and it just makes sense to me to not train my newborn to ignore her bodily functions, only to have to retrain her later.
Also, what is the best book on EC you've read? I ordered "Infant Potty Training" by Laurie Boucke, but would love any suggestions you may have!
