Andrea Olson of Go Diaper Free explains elimination communication - the concept of pottying your baby, as early as birth - which is what people have done for all of human history and in today’s world where there are no diapers. She makes it easy to integrate EC into your modern lifestyle as a new parent, demystifies how to know your baby needs to go, how to take them to the toilet instead of primarily relying on the diaper, and makes EC approachable, accessible, and fun, for all parents...whether part-time, with or without diapers, and in any region of the world. Contrary to popular marketing messages, diapers are tools, not toilets, and babies are ALL born “ready” to use the toilet. Learn how to connect with your baby on this very natural level with Andrea’s expert guidance, and experience the freedom of a life without dependence upon diapers, a life without traumatic toilet training, a life where your baby gets a head start on developing motor skills, communication, and learning by prioritizing this age-appropriate skill (0-18 months). EC honors your baby’s dignity and makes parenting THAT much easier! Stop changing blowouts...and learn how to listen to your baby’s requests for good hygiene. Learn more at godiaperfree.com. (PS - Andrea also occasionally covers potty training, for those of you who find us after 18 months.)

Andrea makes EC EZ!

I had heard about EC from a friend and in my research came across Andrea’s podcast. While I was pregnant, I would listen to her on car rides and while I was putzing around the house. I was so excited to try EC and determined that we could do it. Then, I had my daughter! As a new mom with my first child, I was overwhelmed with all the new things I had to learn to take care of my daughter and the thought of also learning her potty cues intimidated me. At 2 months, I got a notification on my phone with a new Go Diaper Free podcast episode, the one where Andrea is explaining EC to third graders at a career day. I listened and it encouraged me to try. A few minutes later, we had our first catch! I was amazed by how simple it was! I just needed the encouragement and the helpful hints about cues and easy catches. I’m so jazzed about it now and I tell everyone I know about EC! Thanks Andrea!!

Worth a listen

I appreciate how open minded Andrea is in sharing knowledge but not forcing her ideas on anyone.

Must listen for expecting parents

We were lucky to hear about EC through a family member who tried it with their baby, but we weren’t sure where to start when we had our own child five years later. Andrea explains how to pick up the practice from birth in her podcast and even offers tips if you’re a parent of an older child wanting to try something other than 100% diapers. I’ve shared the podcast with several friends — it’s easy to convince even the busiest folks to listen since each episode is so short. Thank you, Andrea!
