I'm so glad that this forum has been started. We've been ECing since Devon was four months old and I really don't know anyone else who does it.

Re: Hooray for our new EC forum! What is it for? Read on!

I'm so glad to see this new forum!

We've been EC'ing since birth, but my DD's (14 months) has been on a prolonged potty strike lately. It's very frustrating, so I'm glad to have somewhere to chat with other EC'ers. The non-EC people I know have been telling me that the potty strike is "proof" that I've scarred her for life by starting pottying so early.

Ecing for 15 months now

We started our son when he was 3 months- meant to start sooner, but was 'afraid' to jump right in...

Contacted some ladies who were doing it with their kids and spent an afternoon watching what they did. EASY as pie!

Some tips-
Try to be consistant- if you can't do it all the time:

try in the morning right after wake up.

try after meals- you may find 5-10 minutes afterwards works- or maybe your wee one has a different idea time schedule.

try right before, or ESP> right after naps.

try before baths, and right before putting down for the night


We had success early on and it was very encouraging!

My son like to sit on his bb and read from a pile of books we keep stacked right there for his distraction pleasure- Sometimes it is hard to get him off the potty!

Even if you get one poo a day (which is a great start),
That is one less dirty diaper to wash, one less disposable in the landfill, on less poopy butt to clean up~

I love the time I spend with my son on his bb, it is some of the only time I can get him to sit still!


Good Luck!
