Micelle, our routine sounds like yours. DD is almost 4 mo and we're full time in diapers but she will almost always hold her poop until I take her to potty. We're more successful with pee in the morning b/c I can watch for it so much more easily and by afternoon, we're both tired of the running to potty. I still try to continue to catch her but accuracy isn't always great. And since she's not excited to cooperate later in the day, I don't force it. All about keeping her happy and no rush. I get the same early morning kicks too! Takes me awhile to figure out what's going on, at which point she is then punching me! :-)
