Ups and Downs

A quick snapshot of where we are with EC right now…

Henry is almost nine months now.  He’s starting to let go of furniture to stand by himself, and gets up on his feet when crawling (so he crawls on his hands and feet, not knees).  It seems like we have good days and “bad” days as far as EC goes.  Most importantly, if we get the poop on the potty that seems like the whole day is better - fewer misses overall.  Many times if we miss a bit of poop, even if we put him on the potty right afterwards he doesn’t finish and we have 3-4 poop misses over the next few hours, plus pee misses (even with pottytunities during this time).

Because this is not the first time I’ve done EC with a kid, I know not to worry.  I hardly even think about it much, to be honest.  I doubt I think about it much more than other parents think about diapering their kids — they just do it.

We use waterproof EC Pants during the day with bamboo velour inner fabric, microfiber soaker, and snap sides.  I love snaps for really easy checking/changing anywhere.  At night, Henry is naked for the first 5-6 hours he’s sleeping.  I’m still awake during this time and it’s our best “catch rate” time so I don’t even bother with trainers.  He’ll pee in his sleep or I won’t get to him fast enough maybe once every 2 weeks.  (Though there are nights when we’ll get two wet spots in bed.  These we blot up with a prefold, then put a dry prefold and a wool blanket over them so we sleep on dry wool.)  When I head to bed, I put a SIMPLYcover on him with an infant prefold inside.  This usually stays on him until he wakes up for good in the morning (about 4-5 hours) but I sometimes manage to wake up enough to potty/check/change him 1-2 times during this time, it all depends on how hard he tries to WAKE me up and how tired I am.

We use the toilet with the Baby Bjorn Toilet Trainer insert almost exclusively.  It’s easier for me to get up and take him to the toilet than it is to try to position him correctly on any type of little potty.  When out and about, I’ll hold him over a toilet but lately he has not been wanting to pee anywhere but at home.   Today he was dry for 2+ hours while we ran errands.

Happy Pottying!
