Rebecca Mottrom of Little Bunny Bear wrote this guide to EC for all you busy parents who want guidance for quickly starting the elimination communication journey. My daughter makes an appearance in the accompanying videos. Be sure to also check out all the EC clothing that Rebecca has to offer!
Diaper Free: The Gentle Wisdom of Natural Infant Hygiene by Ingrid Bauer
This book explores the deep connection between mother and baby that can be achieved when practicing elimination communication. It inspired me to practice EC once I became a mom. However, it didn't provide all the how-to details I needed to start elimination communication right away.
Nappy Free Baby: A practical guide to baby-led potty training from birth by Amber Hatch
This book on baby-led potty training is a great option for those of you in the UK. While babies have the same natural instincts all over the world, the terminology for discussing elimination communication varies by location.

Toilet Awareness: Using Montessori Philosophy to Create a Potty Learning Routine by Sarah Moudry
This short and to-the-point book teaches the Montessori approach to toilet learning. The bathroom environment is prepared in a manner that promotes independence and the child is given opportunities to use the toilet at transition times throughout the day. Montessori recognized the sensitive period for toilet learning to be 12-18 months old.

Baby Meets Potty
The Baby Meets Potty online class shows you how to start elimination communication with a baby who is 0-3 months old. This class gave me the confidence to start EC from birth with my second baby. I don't personally follow the Baby Wise advice, but you can choose which pieces of advice best fit your family.
EC While Out & About
EC While Out and About is another excellent online class with plenty of bonus videos showing what it's like to do EC away from home. Andrea even demonstrates how to handle pottying multiple children. This class gave me the confidence to EC my baby in a Porta Potty. That was an adventure!
Potty Pause Resolution
Encountering a potty pause is one of the most common stumbling blocks for families practicing elimination communication. EC was going fine and then suddenly your child starts protesting and refusing to potty. Andrea explains how to get through this challenging time. If you have a toddler, pair this class with Wrapping up EC.
Elimination Communication Supplies
Potette Plus Travel Potty & Liner
For EC away from home we like to bring along the Potette Plus with collapsible liner. If we use it in a bathroom we dump it in the toilet, rinse it in the sink, and store it in a wet/dry bag. If we aren't near a bathroom we line it with a prefold.
Montessori Toilet Learning Supplies
A small child-sized chair helps with the dressing and undressing process. Your child can start pushing down his pants, sit down and finish taking off his pants.
