DD is only 8 wks old now, and so far, most of the time I don't have to take her. At home, if she's awake and upset, I stick her in her Rock & Play Sleeper so she's right by my face...if she's calm, I leave her where she is or put her on the floor. Hah - I notice that she tends to poop when I do. It must be triggered by the (ick) smell. Or if she's in the Moby, that works. When we're out, usually we're at a doctor's office or with friends or family, so I just hand her off to a nurse or a friend. So far, everyone is more than happy to snuggle her for a few minutes.

That is the #1 reason I've not been tempted enough to try EC. Not because I don't want to get peed on exactly, but rather because I don't want the smell of pee to become the norm as part of my perfume cocktail, like spit up has, to the point that I don't notice anymore. Today a 5 yr old hugged me and said, "You smell like milk!" I can only imagine...
