DH and I have been practicing EC with DS since he was 2.5 months old. We've made 100% of poop catches over the past month or so and I've had a few days that are 100% with pees while at home and a few more that are close to it. So I think we're ready to try trainers at home??
Does anyone have suggestions for where I can get some for DS? He is 5.5 mos old and long and skinny (16lbs currently, and about 80th percentile for length, 50% for weight). I'm hoping to get non-waterproof for now as I was planning on continuing with diapers out and about for the time being (I offer the potty when I can but he seems to get freaked out by public washrooms, particularly ones at the mall which tend to be loud) and want to change him as soon as I have a miss at home and it's just easier to check with non-waterproof. Also, I am just learning to sew and saw a pattern on the Do-it-yourself EC website, but thought maybe trainers were a bit ambitious? I was going to start with the Ergo suck pads, then do the BBLP cover, then wool longies...(work my way up, you know?). For those of you who sew, would it be way too ambitious to make trainers in the near future?
Also, how many do you think I need? Some days we are around 50%, some days much better than that.
Oh and as an aside...We were at a friends for dinner last night. They have a 7 mos old DS. The other mom knows we do EC and we were chatting about it and how I ended up starting, that part time was totally fine, etc. Then I had to pee DS and asked if she wanted to watch. She was so amazed by how DS had been waiting and peed right away and had a big full bladder pee she wants to try with her DS now too. I love letting other people know about EC and how great it is!
Thanks in advance.
