5.0 out of 5 stars Who knew? (That babies can do this) February 21, 2007
When I first heard of EC, I was skeptical. However, I liked the idea that my baby might get by without a diaper rash and would be out of diapers as soon as possible (typically by 25 months.) I added the books "Infant Potty Training" by Laurie Boucke and "Diaper Free: The Gentle Wisdom of Natural Infant Hygiene" by Ingrid Bauer to my prenatal reading list. What they said made sense and my husband and I decided we would try EC when our baby was born. WOW! I am so glad we went down this path.

This dvd is helpful for parents who are first starting out. Reading a book, looking at still photos, and joining online groups is nothing like seeing it in action. There's so much information in the dvd that, if I were inexperienced, I'd probably watch it a gazillion times (along with reading the books and joining the online groups.) What is most helpful is seeing so many different ways of working with so many different ages of babies and toddlers. There's no one right way, there's a different right way for each baby at each stage of their infancy and toddlerhood, and this dvd lets you see quite a number of different styles.

As someone who's almost 14 months into the process, I was encouraged by the scenes of older toddlers. It's so easy to get lost in where you are today that you forget the end result is an independent child. It was also fun to see how our style compares to that of other families. The little boy just waking up from a nap and holding his pee until he was given the cueing sound could have been my son. The woman from Australia made sewing pants for her baby look really easy. Then there's the scene of the young toddler ec'ing her doll. That had to be the cutest scene in the dvd.

For anyone uncertain if they want to undertake EC, the process is simple.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seeing is Believing... May 16, 2007
It's one thing to read about infant pottying in theory. It's another to see it in action. That's the value of this video. I showed it to a friend of mine, who was convinced that it was too much trouble, yet interested to know 'the basics.' Shortly after viewing the first three sections of this video, her 3 month old daughter began to fuss and I suggested she try to pee her. And guess what? The mom was truly impressed and surprised when her baby peed into a potty for the very first time! It was so simple. Watching this video will help any parent learn the basics, and probably inspire them to give it a try! The interviews with professionals provide interesting research and commentary, and the portraits of different families give an in depth look at particular circumstances and special cases. Not only is this video an excellent learning tool, it is beautifully put together, chock full of charming footage of babies and families, with fun, upbeat music as accompaniment. It's not just a how to, or why to, it's a testiment to the love and warmth that develops between parent and child when potty training is done in this gentle way. Thus, it is a valuable tool for all parents who have young children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Informative and Inspirational February 22, 2007
I have used both of Laurie Bouke's books to learn more about the process of Elimination Communication (ie: Potty Whispering, Infant Potty Training, Natural Infant Hygeine) and have loved them. This DVD is just as great. When I watched it, I was in process of succesfully "EC-ing" my 9 month old. The video was very validating and entertaining. If you're a sceptic, or if you're a veteran "EC-er", I highly reccomend this DVD. Check it out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Potty Whisper! July 3, 2007
I recently stumbeled upon the underground world of "EC" or elimination communication and this DVD was able to explain much of that technique to my partner who doesn't like to read as much. For those that aren't too framiliar yet, Potty Whispering is based on the logical thought that you can totally notice when any infant (like my newborn) is ready or starting to go to the bathroom. Instead of deficating in the diaper as usual, the technique teaches how to eliminate over a toilet, potty, etc.

I think this method is great. I am a new mom from NJ, (5 day old as of July 4th 2007) and caught my daughter's first poop today. I am using disposable diapers like most people, and consider this a "part-time" trial for now - which they teach in the tapes and books.

The way I see "part-time" is, even if you "catch" one poop and save ONE diaper, that's one less to buy, and one less to send to a landfill. If you like this tape, you might also like to buy "Diaper Free Baby."

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guide! September 19, 2009
Verified Purchase
Elimination Communication, infant potty training, diaper free - whatever you want to call it - is an excellent way of communicating with your baby. It's practiced in many societies and is very applicable in our own, modern-day, society. It's not at all bad for kids - going to the bathroom is as natural to them as eating, and dealing with it in a clean manner (such as into a potty receptacle) is, in my opinion, better for them than teaching them to soil their pants and try and train them out of that habit a few years down the road.

I really loved Potty Whispering. I've read a lot of books on diaper free babies but seeing a video was a new experience. Potty Whispering was so helpful. It's one thing to see something on the written page, quite another to get a good demonstration on video.

There were many video clips and lots and lots of still-shots. The information is comprehensive and well-organized. A lot of the material in the video is contributed by families with diaper free babies. This means the overall quality of the video is not "studio quality" - however, I don't think it takes away from the video at all. Rather, it gives the video a sense authenticity. It's also encouraging to know that I ca be successful just like the many families on the video.

I give Potty Whispering a high recommendation for being very practical, extensive, and well-organized. It's a great choice for anyone curious about infant potty training, or anyone looking for practical instruction and a wealth of ideas.
