"We expect that everything that falls under this book's umbrella will help make EC more approachable for a wider audience. Andrea...makes it clear that EC is foremost about gentle communication. Furthermore, the material is organized in a manner that prevents the reader from becoming overwhelmed - a strangely frequent phenomenon, given the simplicity and naturalness of EC itself. In short, this project is a real tour de force and a great resource that EC advocates everywhere should not hesitate to recommend."
"I highly recommend this beautiful and excellent resource for EC families. Go Diaper Free is richly illustrated and is an invaluable compilation of information."
--Laurie Boucke, author of Infant Potty Training: A Gentle and Primeval Method Adapted to Modern Living

If it wasn't for this book, I might have given up on EC. There is already so much going on as a new Mom. I didn't have time to read the other EC book a friend got for me. I read a few chapters (which there is barely anytime to do anything with a newborn) couldn't finish and still didn't know how to EC. Then I came along this book! It got right down to the nitty gritty. The topics are clear and it is easy to find what you're looking for and follow.
The brilliance and difference is it is basically written in reverse than the others. She gets right to the point with tips, ways to cue your baby, diaper, positions and pictures of how to hold your baby.
The layout is organized and makes sense.
There is a nutshell version of how to do EC.
Age group section which make it easy to just read about your age baby.
You can just enter what your looking for and it goes right to the topic.
There is an EC gear guide so you can get potties, diaper covers, etc. You can hit on link and get what you need. One less think to look up or do!
There are details of ways to discover your LO's cues and timing. Troubleshooting Ideas which were very helpful. Basically everything you'll need. Get it, you'll be glad you did.
Best of all there is a website with other ways to help you understand your baby's needs and be able to feel comfortable and confident with how you approach EC.
Thank you Andrea for doing what the title says! Simplifying EC!!
i also have the tiny potty training book and that wrapped ec beautifully for us. again, andrea olsen is straight forward and to the point. i highly recommend these books for anybody who is ready to no longer be dependent on diapers, and fast!
The order of the book, its repetitiveness, and the writing style are too messy/informal. The images (which are suppose to explain methods) didn't download properly with the apple kindle version I bought. This makes it hard to understand/apply. And honestly, the idea of teaching a baby to go out in a park or in the road doesn't make sense to me.
The book is interesting, although it feels like reading a really long blog post.
I bought Go Diaper Free for my second child when she was nine months old. We had started EC with her at three months and took a long break after ear infections and moving to a new house. We are now ready to jump back on the bandwagon and get back to it.
I've read the whole book so far and found some good tips! Definitely would recommend this book to anyone wanting to try EC.
Remember, it may seem pricey but in the long run it will save you a bundle on diapers!
That makes me so sad, because they clearly didn't have Andrea's support to hell them through it!
This book isn't just an easy to read and use guide to not be dependent on diapers (for long), it's a philosophy of parenting and a gateway to much more support online; Andreas blog, podcasts, Facebook group, resource list and coaches all over the country.
If you've ever considered infant potty training, this is your guide!
