Another cueing question

My SO cues everytime, but he cues constantly for almost a minute straight. I like to cue then give a couple seconds to go. Does it make a difference? It doesnt seem to, he doesn't always go and sometimes goes as soon as we have him in position. As if hes ignoring the cue and using the way we hold him as his cue.

Also, sometimes he wont go until after his butt is wiped. Is this normal?

Re: Another cueing question

Hi there!

Congrats on starting EC w/ your DS!

I don't think it makes a difference whether the cueing sound is made for a few seconds or a minute straight. You are right about the position being a cue itself to tell your DS that now is the time to go.

Even though it seems like your DS is ignoring the cue I would continue to do it because you never know when he is going to repeat it back to you.

My opinion is that the more EC cues that you have the better.

Best wishes and feel free to ask more questions.

I would think that they're clever enough to figure out both your cuing and your SO's cuing

It's normal to wipe butt and it stimulates the area. Mama cats will lick at their babies bottoms to get them to go or lick the bladder area to get them to pee. When I hold DD over the potty I gently flick my finger over her bladder a couple times (like a licking cat) and that will stimulate peeing
