Elimination Communication Video – Day In The Life

by admin on March 1, 2010

It’s about darn time. I’ve been meaning to put an elimination communication video together, using the footage we taped on our last camping excursion. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a movie editing program, which caused quite a delay.

.

Today, I was able to download some software for free, enabling me to make the elimination communication video below.  We’ve entitled it, “A day in the life.“  It’s not very long, but I feel it gets the point across well enough for people who haven’t seen or heard much about the subject of infant potty training.

Please rate and comment on my video, if possible.  We really want to get the word out about elimination communication.  People need to know about this money saving, bond building practice.  It’s just another fun thing for us “natural parenting” folks to try. :)  Thanks to all you EC supporters!

Hey there is nothing wrong with being a lunatic ;0). I like being different and doing things my own way. And they sure communicate with us, even dh is sold on it now. She actually just peed for him the other day :0).

Isn’t it fun?! We love it- despite everyone thinking we’re lunatics! :) They really do communicate with us, which is sooo neat!

Awesome video about ECing. I just started ECing with my little girl a couple of weeks ago and absolutely love it. I notice more and more when she has to go as she communicates with me.

I haven’t read that article, but I have heard why one should not say good job. We actually cut it out completely for awhile but fell back into it. We decided that saying good job is something that just feels natural for us, so we’re likely to stick with it. We do try to refrain from saying “good boy” though, when he does something pleasing to us. We don’t want him to associate his “goodness” with how much he makes “us” happy. Anyway- thanks for the comment! :)

This is an awesome video. I love EC and wish that I had more footage of my son. I have a couple pics and that’s about it. Just one comment, off topic from EC, that I have from the video is how often you say “good job”. I too did this until I read an article by Alfie Kohn “Five Reasons to Stop Saying Good Job”. http://www.alfiekohn.org/parenting/gj.htm CHeck it out and tell me what you think. I have to say that the transition was difficult at first and if you have any questiond please feel free to ask me.

Ha ha, poor little guy…! I always feel bad when my son wakes up and struggles to hold his head up and makes those ‘let me go back to sleeeep’ noises :)down.

I’m hoping to watch this video later, the youtube is stalling on me pretty badly. It’s an interesting idea, though!

Cool! I just had my husband try to film ours going potty today, but she didn’t have to go and signed ‘all done’. Maybe I’ll catch it next weekend. I want to have a video but it’s impossible to hold the camera and the baby at the same time!

-And where did you get his cute stripey socks?? Love those!
