And then two minutes later he goes pee when I have him on nakie time! Are there other EC-ers or CD-ers near you? Maybe you could get more support from other mamas who are nearby. Don't give up!
No I am the only "hippie" of my friends or family in the area. I try to convert people to the CD and BF. Now I will try with the EC. I did just give the outgrown diapers to my cousin. I might have a convert.

Re: Sometimes I feel...

I've been feeling pretty down about all of our missed pees lately as well... Yesterday we both went through a couple of pairs of clothes. We were doing so well just last week, but the last couple of days have been so off!! It's nice to know other moms are going through the same thing!! We'll get through this

Heh. I just had the thought... Maybe because I've never done it any other way (expecting our first in March), the pitfalls of EC will just seem like the pitfalls of baby care to me.

Lol, yeah, since this babe will be your first, it will probably all roll together. Hope your pregnancy is going well

Awesome! Now that you mention it, I wasn't peed on today either, lol. High five!

Glad you are getting your rhythm down

Re: Sometimes I feel...

Finally back on the EC bandwagon, now that DS2 is out of diapers and actively using the potty. Having fun doing EC with DS3, now that I am a lot less stressed out watching DS2 for signs of needing to go! I thought we were done with EC since DS3 was not responding for a while, but now he's got it Hope you all are having successes of your own on this facet of the parenting journey!
