Re: 6 months = too old?

I don't think it's too late, but your DH is going to have to let him go nakies so that you can see his signals and know when he needs to go. You can use generic timing (after waking up, after feeding) to predict when he will go, but seeing him pee or poop will give you A LOT more info. Besides, Everything is washable! You may want to get prefolds and covers instead to make it quicker for you to take him to the potty. Also, he may not like the cold plastic on the potty. Check out the EC Simplified Facebook page to see a ten minute tutorial on how to make an easy cover for the potty and to get more tips on EC-ing. And like mamarisa said, you can do EC part time. I do it when I can with my 8 week old- tough to do sometimes when I have my three year old and almost two year old running around! Might want to check out ecsimplified.com for tips and to get her book. Don't give up!
