Re: EC for 11 week old??

OK so the potty is NOT working. We have a BB and my daughter screeeeeeems on it and for about a half hour after. When she makes her poop face I gently put her on it and shhhh shhhh and she screams and doesn't poop. I think I've made her constipated. Post nap pees are usually when I try to catch, but the same thing happens. What now??

I would just take a li'l break from EC, mama. Maybe a few days. If she's tense, you'll be tense, and that will mess her up. Is the potty cold to her? You can also throw a pf over it so it's more comfy.

She may not like the position you hold her in. Have you tried ECing her lying down on the changing table over prefolds or an open diaper?

Also, I had to undiaper mine nice and slow when she was that young or she would freak out.

You can also make your own potty cozy using old shirts or fleece sweaters. Check out how to do it at http://ecsimplified.com/diy-potty-cozy/. No sewing required! I made one in ten minutes!

I made this one too! It worked okay, but the shirt I used was a little thin and I wasn't sure I wanted to redo the tie every time I washed it. I went ahead and ordered a couple from the Etsy lady and love them . But the DIY instructions are great if you don't want to buy one.
