Commonly Used Terms
EC: short for Elimination Communication- there's plenty of ways to describe this but I'll try to be brief and not ramble too much. This is the process of helping your newborn/infant use the potty instead of their diaper. You learn the baby's cues and patterns (always peeing when they wake up, or grunting prior etc) and set them on a potty. Much more comfortable for the baby, reduces waste of disposable diapers or need to wash as many cloth diapers and it's much easier than most people think at first. Never thought I'd do EC, but once I tried it, it's a great addition to our journey.
