5 days old and I've caught a few pees!

I think it's so sweet when I've caught his pees! I don't have time to do EC full time, but we've noticed that he nursed better when we caught his pee right when he had woken up from sleeping. Any tips for ECing a newborn, this is my first time with a NB.

Re: 5 days old and I've caught a few pees!

That's great! We EC-ed our 2nd daughter from birth and I found it has made a huge difference. We EC-ed our first daughter from 5 months, but she had several potty strikes and never got comfortable pooping in the potty. With our 2nd daughter (she's 10 months now) she's only pooped in her diaper ONCE so far in 2008. I think the first few months are an important time when babies learn a lot about their world. If they get used to going in the potty in those early months, I think it just becomes something normal to them rather than something strange to get used to later on. Keep up the good work - even it it's just EC-ing part time!

OK, make that one more pee, lol! I just got another one.

Thanks for sharing your story. I will enjoy doing what we can. It's such a wonderful way of meeting baby's needs. It really heps a lot to understand them better. Their world is kinda small, lol, elimination is a big part of it. Eating, peeing, and sleeping. And falling in love! What else do they really care about?!

You're right, elimination IS a big part of their early world. Funny thing, my 2nd daughter smiled at me for the first time when she was 3 weeks old and on the potty. She has always really enjoyed our potty time. She laughs and giggles and enjoys every minute of it. For the last month or two, she signs "all done" when she's all done going pee or poop on the potty - very helpful and she LOVES being able to communicate about her pottying.

EC rocks man. My baby has reflux and he used to scream when I laid him on his back to change him. Since we've been doing EC, no more screaming. I still have to put him on his back to get a diaper back on him, but he seems okay with it now. I have this sneaky suspicion that ECing helps the whole digestive process.

Congrats on your little one and your EC success!
