Re: Defining EC for people who haven't heard of it.
When people ask me about EC, I direct them to the tribalBaby web site (http://www.tribalbaby.org/ECindex.html). I love the simplicity of the explanation. It shows how easy and natural it can be.
From Tribal baby:
In a nutshell, Elimination Communication is about the Communication.
It is about helping your baby to go 'to the toilet' somewhere other than a nappy, some of the time, then more of the time as they grow!
