Trying to observe baby's signals with a 6 week old baby who's almost constantly moving and vocalizing. He's gassy too as I make a ton of milk, so lots of grunting and farting and both big and small poops, little cries and squawks, pooping while nursing, which makes watching for his signals very confusing. Maybe I should wait until he's around 3 months when he's not going so often? But I am keen to start...I see some patterns in his timing. I have never seen anyone use EC so maybe I am overthinking it into being more difficult than it is.
With a baby who is just getting started, how long do you hold him over a receptacle before deciding he doesn't need to go?
If he arches his back or resists, even when you are just starting, this could mean he doesn't need to go or that he's just weirded out.
How does starting part-time work, if you are essentially responding to his cues sometimes and ignoring them other times?
