Re: Too late to EC?
I started ECing with my first child at 7 months ~ I sort of "fell into it". I saw my LO at the time "make the poop face" so I quick grabbed her, and stuck her on the toilet, and caught it. It became a thing I did, catching her poops...so I just kept it up. She became pretty regular after her morning oatmeal around 12 months. Once in the morning, she would unload her bowels on the toilet. At 15 months, she started telling me "poopie" and patting her butt before going. She wasn't pee trained til she was about 2 though!!
I'm sortof ECing with my 5 month old. I know in the morning after she nurses that she will poop so I stick her on the toilet and wait for her to go, usually just have to wait about 15 seconds before she goes. I love it!
