16 month update

We went to a music festival in Illinois last week and camped for 5 days.  It seemed to give us a boost in the EC department.  Several days before we went camping Isabela started saying “potty,” which prooved very beneficial as she was pooping 5-6 times/day on our trip.  I don’t know if it was teething related or a food reaction, but I was definitely glad that she was telling us every time she needed the potty!!!  The frequent poops have continued since our trip but seem to be tappering off.  Here’s a 16 month update:

> Age of your EC-child…

16 months

> We started at…

1 week old

> Generally speaking we are doing…

Awesome!

> How do you know your baby has to go? Baby’s signals? Timing?

> Intuition? Is there a difference for poos and pees?

We’ve been doing EC mostly on timing and intuition, but Isabela now says potty every time she needs to poop and sometimes when she needs to pee.

> Which positions/receptacles do you use?

Daytime is between my legs facing forward on the big toilet.  Nighttime is in bed with the BBLP.

> Do you use diapers or training pants?

EC store side snap waterproof trainers when we’re out; non-waterproof trainers or undies at home.

> How are you doing away from home?

Great!  I just have to have a book handy when we use public toilets, or she usually refuses. 

> What are you doing at night?

BBLP in bed.  She has been staying dry, and might pee in the potty once or twice depending on her level of wakefullness.

> Who takes baby to the potty?

Me, DH

> Accidents - how many do you have?

> What times are especially accident-prone?

There’ve been much fewer lately. On a good day, none.  Other days 2 or 3 pee misses.  Accidents are mainly when she is playing with other kids and distracted.  I’ve learned that I still need to take the initiative at these times and not wait for her to ask for the potty.  And she still usually wants to be reading a book on the potty, so I always need to have reading material handy.

> What do you like most about ec’ing at the moment?

I love that she is asking for the potty.  I love that she is being read to so much because of all the potty story time we have!  The trainers are so nice because I don’t have to find a spot to lay her down when we are out.  In fact, it feels weird to try to lay her down for anything (except sleep)!  We pull trainers on and off while standing or sitting and she gets dressed standing up too.  She’s getting big so fast!!!!!

> Do you ever wish you’d have never heard about it?

No way!!
