Re: Part-time EC Questions

If you figure out a bucket when nursing, put the same cloth or prefold over him to prevent spraying. Also it won't mess everything up if you don't figure out the pees right away!

We didn't start until later and only did parttime so my son was in diapers until PL, but we also had alot of dry diapers. Do what works for your family. Just because you can't figure out the pees now, doesn't mean you can't next week.

I really liked the book diaper free baby by Christine Gross-Loh unlike what the title suggested it was very supportive of parttime EC and starting late. You might not learn anything that you didn't reading the diaper free book but it might help you feel more comfortable finding your own path.

I felt like Bauer's book was very preachy, start day 1 and my way or the hw. I was able to read it with a grain of salt and did learn alot though. Gross-Loh's book made we want to start EC even at 9 months, she got me excited and made me feel that we could do even with me working full time. Great read!

big congrats for starting early! I hope I am able to figure it out early next time around
