What is Elimination Communication?

Elimination Communication (EC) is an ancient practice of tuning in to a baby's elimination patterns and signals and responding to the baby's needs.  In this way, babies can live diaper-free!  Might sound crazy at first, but it's truly a beautiful thing!  Ingrid Bauer is an expert in the field - read more on her website.

36 Hours with no miss

We went about 36 hours without a miss - Saturday evening until this morning. Last night Elie didn't even need to pee all night. I guess he peed around 6am when he stirred awake because I was dry when I first woke up and realized I was wet soon after :)

Yesterday was so easy - Elie was in the wrap most of the day because we were outside and moving around a lot. He's been verbally signally a lot, both for pee and poop. It's so cute. He puts his tongue out a tiny bit and blows lightly to try to make the psshhh sound ;) I think he gave a verbal signal about half the time yesterday.
