To Diaper or Not To Diaper
Nothing gets me more pumped up than witnessing the rise of entrepreneurial spirit paired with environmental consciousness. We’ve all heard of coaches for team sports, life coaches for personal growth… but EC, aka Elimination Communication coaches? They had me at “no more poopy diapers.” Seriously? Is that really possible? Think of our landfills, think of all of those Pampers piled-up. EC is an exciting movement afoot among new parents with one solid goal on the horizon – to tread more lightly on the planet while consciously connecting with their children. Jessica Bentson is a young mom, and now a certified Go Diaper Free coach, guiding other parents through the process.
EC is a gentle, non-coercive method of potty training from birth. It is what parents were doing for 100,000 years pre-diapers, and is based upon responding to the signals of babies, much like heeding their requests when hungry or sleepy. Certainly a worthy conversation – here’s to the possibility of diaper independence! jessicabentson.com
