Re: ECing a newborn
No advice, but I did want to say not to worry to much if it takes a while to catch on and be comfortable. For the first two months, all my attempts to EC just resulted in an angry bare bottomed baby. Maybe try an after nap pee catch? He might go before he has a chance to cry or get upset about it.
