Because potty training is just a small piece of independent self-care.
Toileting skills are a journey. Not a sprint.
Have we met?
Hi, I'm Erika Fraser!
I’m an expert in user experience here to dive into the nourishing, connection-building, and wildly BIG self-growth side of parenthood with you.
Family rhythms, whole-systems thinking, learning pedagogy?
Yes! I’m bringing it all with my background in design, education, and economics as I guide you through timeless and evidence-based practices to help you build a family that grows together and that you truly LOVE being with.
7 years ago I set out to cultivate a growth-mindset for my family...
I dug deep and put in the time, connecting the dots, and science, behind my little one’s natural independence. And then I applied it again, and again.
All 3 of my children were able to enjoy reliable dry days by 18 months old. And as a busy parent, I loved it too!
Years later, we're still benefiting from the family patterns and culture we cultivated - talk about making the most of a family milestone!
Since then, I have helped dozens of families grow more connected through their diaper-free journey with my winning combination of essential knowledge, support and community.
And now Bueno Market is where good folks gather to raise great kids.

Drop the tension outta those shoulders
Imagine 20 years from today...
✓ You lined up those family and personal values to reach one of your biggest family goals - talk about building positive core values and character. You modelled it for your little one from the start!
✓ How about that high-five-worthy (or baby-fist pump) confidence boost you and your little one need right about now? That's team work that last through the teen years!
✓ No lone-wolf parenting - the meaningful connections that came with journeying alongside a supportive community have gifted you life-long, world-wide friends.
✓ You don't regret for a second that delivered the growth and connection they needed during a critical developmental stage. Their hugs, trust in you, and way of being in the world say it all.
✓ Phew! You did a really good job raising a great human that you love being and growing with.
Alright mums, dads - let's wiggle those toes and fingers. Come back to the present with me...
Let's get to those FAQs
Like so many early childhood skills, you can start right from birth and build from there - it's never too early to start body awareness and responsive communication. The earlier you start, the more time your little one has to adopt and normalize what they are learning.
Starting early also creates less of a learning crunch for you - When its time to go from diapers to potty, you'll be ready for it and they will too!
We love when expecting parents, or parents of new babies join along with families who have toddlers who are ready to leap from diapers to potty, or have already started and have gotten stuck so we can grow and learn together. It's one of the perks of our forever membership community!
Try the 1.5-2 hour test. If your 12+ month old child has every gone diaper-free for 1.5-2 hours without needing to pee, they're holding it, and ready to start building potty skills.
Offer your little one diaper-free time for a few hours in an easy to clean space (patio, park, or an indoor space with washable flooring) a few days over the next week and observe their natural pattern. Don't worry about accidents - we call them misses and they're expected, normal, and a chance for your little one to feel and see their bodily functions.
But don't worry - we'll cover this in detail in the program and you'll have a chance to bring ALL your questions to our live Q+A sessions.
The course contains about 6 hrs of learning.
It's binge-worthy if you're in the depths of potty struggles and want (or NEED) to cover it all in one go.
If you're here to prepare and start slow, you can go through it self-paced.
Feel free to make use of ongoing intensives that will guide you though all of the content across 1-2 weeks.
