EC and daycare
I'm thinking about starting EC with my 2.5 month old but am worried that it might be confusing for her to be expected to go in diapers all day when she starts daycare 3 months from now. She will be at daycare 3 days a week from 8 to 4 and home with me or her dad the rest of the time. I don't expect the daycare teachers to practice EC with her, but do you think we could still keep writing on it successfully at home?

Re: EC and daycare
According to the EC book I read, Diaper Fre Baby, it shouldn’t be an issue. Babies are able to sort out the “who” and “when” of EC, that is, they know who’s going to take them to the toilet and who isn’t. You could also talk to your daycare about it, and see if they’d be open to the possibility of EC. I’m going to be in this same situation shortly, so I can give you some first hand experience in about a month!
