i realize that for some of you this may go against your EC philosophy, but i'd like to put it out there anyhow. has anyone switched to conventional forms of potty training with their EC'd toddler or have you any thoughts on this?
here's our situation: ds is 26mo, we've been doing EC with a full-time diaper back-up since 4mo. we had a short time of communication on his part about a year ago, but since then he's pretty much relied on our timing. we catch most of the poop and he does pee every time he's on the toilet, which is whenever he gets his diaper changed, but also pees in the nappy between that. he does usually tells us after he's pooped in the nappy and sometimes while he's peeing but on the whole i think he doesn't really have any interest in letting us know and certainly doesn't seem to mind his wet nappy. we talk about moving on to undies (gave them a go in the summer but stopped in the winter) and he always says yes but that he wants his nappies for now. certainly, we can keep going like this and he'll graduate eventually, but i'm wondering if maybe i could give him some more incentive (sticker charts??) or if there's anything else i can do to encourage him.
any thoughts on this? i haven't actually researched any forms of potty training, so i'm just sort of putting this out there..
