Re: New to EC'ing as of Today!

I would definitely try an in arms position - think of it like pushing in labor: it helps to have that pressure on your legs to focus your effort. We didn't bother with different pee/poop cues, but we regret choosing the ssssss sound - it's too commonly used for other things! Solids definitely made a difference for DD, too. Went from 6 poops/day to 0-2.

Re: New to EC'ing as of Today!

Thanks for the suggestion. He's warmed up to the BBLP, but I've tried the in-arms a few times this weekend. I even sat on the potty backwards at church and let him pee. It was fun times.

He was a little constipated but is all better now. Now he's keeping us on his toes because he's pooped 2-3 times every day. I can't believe how much easier it is to catch it in the potty instead of clean it out of a diaper. Love it!

We're at home for the week for Thanksgiving and my in-laws think the baby potty is awesome. So cute!

The baby really likes pooping in the car seat.
