November 26, 2014 by Trisha Leave a Comment Elimination Communication, or “Infant Potty Training,” can seem a little overwhelming, no doubt about that. Add it all to the fact that EC can seem very “all-or-nothing.” Either you commit to it full-time, or it’s just not worth your time, which can be very disheartening for mamas who have to leave their babies with other caregivers who can’t or won’t be able to continue elimination communication while baby is with them, or moms who have their hands full with multiple children. I’m here to tell you that elimination communication can absolutely work on a part-time basis. We started EC with Fox when she was only a few weeks old, and I was basically the only person doing it. I only EC’d during the day, so all of her nighttime eliminations still went into her diapers. We still have days on both ends of the spectrum, but I know she will be ready to be fully potty trained soon (sooner if I hadn’t been really lazy about EC for a few months and if we were a bit more stable, but with the move happening, that wasn’t happening).
Elimination communication has absolutely worked for us part-time, and can totally work for you, too! The time commitment and having to identify baby’s cues and the successes and misses can make your head spin.


I would simply pay attention (I was looking at her all the time anyways, so, hey, why not?) and pick up on her potty cues, as well as offer the potty whenever I changed her. I only EC’d when I was her primary caregiver, I was awful lazy about it when hubs was home.
Once she caught on, Fox was really good about giving cues when she had to go, especially with pooping. Despite all of that, I haven’t changed a poopy diaper in over 8 months, and they were sporadic for months leading up to that. You can make it work for your family, no need to follow a specific set of rules, just go with the flow, so to speak! I tend to overshare about my favorite things, especially cloth diapering, breastfeeding, and babywearing.

We mostly EC’d when we were home, not so much when we were out and about – when she would let us! I like to Zumba with my toddler in the living room, eat food that is terrible for me while browsing health-food websites, and reading young-adult novels to try to forget that I’m closing in on the big 3-0.

I work hard to make wherever we are feel like a real home, and make our home warm and inviting.
