Re: EC and Crying

My DS (2weeks) does this as well. I feel like I am torturing him at times, however, he usually goes. Even when he goes in his diaper he still cries, so I think that he would cry regardless of whether I am pottying him or not. I am usually only successful when he is nursing though.

Re: EC and Crying

I was wondering something along similar lines. When DD wakes at night - she is really upset when we potty her first, then feed. She's rather eat right away then we potty her. It's confusing to me because I thought she'd like to pee upon wakening...
Tonight it was like she was in pain. She was screaming so hard. I am so used to trying the potty first... However, she is teething.
She still does not get the "sit and go" idea. but she is getting heavy to hold... nearing 20 lbs..

You know, this has been happening to me too. DS is just mad if I try to potty him at night first, but if I feed him a little, he starts grunting does go if I offer. I was thinking I'd miss it if he ate first, but it's just not worth the screaming. I guess the thing is they are waking from hunger probably not from potty needs.

Re: EC and Crying

Yes, I've given up on trying to catch pee/poop right upon waking if he is screaming. I feed him on one breast, then take him to potty and change him, and then offer the other breast. This is very new for me (just a couple of days) but it seems to be working well so far.

Re: EC and Crying

My friend's baby screamed and cried every time he went potty when he was a newborn so she took him to the chiropractor and he quit crying when he peed after that.

Maybe something is out of alignment? Just a thought.

Re: EC and Crying

I had the same question. DS cries some of the time when I'm holding him over the toilet. I just put the diaper back on at that point. I'm thinking of trying a seat reducer... perhaps that'll be more comfortable for him (and me!)
