Re: EC
 
I'm planning on ECing our next baby...I started with Natalie when she was 11 months old...and she did really well...but at 13 months, she REFUSED to sit on the potty. Now, at 17months, she's just started to at least sit on it again and has been successful a handful of times. I need to look into it further myself...so I can't give you too much advice, other than go for it! If she's able to hold her pee...definitely try and find a pattern to her elimination and set her on the potty at that time. I've heard it's usually a few minutes after waking and half an hour after drinking...although this doesn't hold true for my little one...I can't figure out when she's gonna go!! Giving plenty of "pottytunities" will help!

Try going to www.diaperfreebaby.com also...as well as www.theecstore.com for suggestions!

DD won't let me sit here for long, but I think you should definitely take her to the potty!

we've been ecing since DD was about 1 week old; it's great... we usually have a diaper on her just in case, and have good days and not so good days (where we 'miss' a lot')

a good book on Ec'ing is Diaper Free!

I recommend at least looking into it. We did it on and off with my first daughter. With our new baby, I started right away - when she was just a couple weeks old. It helps to start early. I don't stress over it either - she has a distinctive cry right before she pees and if I can't get her to the potty right away, I don't worry about it. That's why she wears diapers after all. She loves to sit on the potty (she's almost 2 months now). I can almost always get a smile out of her on the potty. Our big achievement is her pooping in the potty (she has another very distinctive grunting before she poops and she works on it for a while so I have time to react and get her on the potty). I haven't changed a poopy diaper in 3 weeks! It's nice just washing wet diapers - no stains in the newborn diapers for us :)

so you just watch for signs that the babe has to pee?
my DS pees as soon as i remove a diaper - maybe it's the draft.
sometimes i've notice a little sound he makes right before he pees in the bathtub. do i just leave the diaper off all day and watch for signals? or do you say "psss" when they go to create an association?

Maybe these will help better...sorry the other links just came to mind when I thought of EC...not thinking they might not have "How To" info on them.

This link wasn't working for me at the moment...but I remember visiting it and getting some information.... www.tribalbaby.org


Good luck!
