She asked to go poop!!
My almost 16 month old, who I have been doing part time ec, asked to go "poop." She was having some naked time after sitting on the potty with a successful number 1, and then she ran around for a while. Then she comes up to me in the bathroom and says "poop." So I get her on the potty and she only peed but still. I was excited. Yeah for having better language skills and Yeah for getting it.

You have to celebrate the little successes.

Oh, and yesterday when she was wearing my homemade trainers, she had 2 different misses. After the misses, she started walking really funny like she didn't like to be wet. It made me laugh. Maybe she won't like to be dirty and ask the for potty more. We can hope!!

Re: She asked to go poop!!
great job, mama! your little one might me ready for potty training instead of EC. a great ebook to check out is "oh crap. potty training" at her book was recommended by Andrea Olson who wrote EC Simplified. i read your other post about not having started EC earlier with your LO. I felt the same way, too. But, I really didn't know much about EC and no one in my sphere of friends was doing it so I had no guidance. And once I got on the cloth diapering bandwagon, I was swept away in thinking that cloth was the only way to go. Then I read a natural news blog and I was thinking EC was way too crunchy. But, with a little more research, it started to make sense to me. Anyway, keep it up and tell your friends about it, even if they think you're weird! Someone's got to get the word out :)

I did EC with my second from birth. One day when she was 17 months old, she did what your daughter did; she requested the potty verbally for the first time. I ran with it and she graduated within the month. Maybe your daughter will be similar!
