DS is almost 8 months old, and is consistently pooing on the potty every morning. I never really intended to do EC, but we're using cloth diapers, and when we started introducing solid foods, I was just dreading dealing with poo and cloth diapers. I read a bunch of forums trying to figure out what system (potty pail, wet pail system, etc) would make dealing with dirty diapers easier, until finally I read a response on MDC that suggested doing EC for poo. So, we started none too seriously the end of January, with no high expectations since I didn't know if I was "too late" to do EC with then 6 month old DS.
But now its been something like 2 weeks, and our morning routine of nursing and then poo on the potty has resulted in no dirty diapers. I keep waiting to find a dirty diaper, but it seems like going on the potty is the new norm. Cool!
So now I am wondering... what would be a logical next step if I want to continue on using more potty and less diapers? I tried back when we first started reading about EC to keep him diaper free and see what he does for pees, but the boy seriously pees about 10-12 times in an hour (little trickles, over and over) without any warning. My thought is that the next reasonable thing to do would be to start consistently offering the potty at every diaper change and see if he start associating being on the potty for peeing, too.
Also, I have tried sitting him on the potty, and he really hates it. Instead, I normally hold him on the potty, sitting reverse. He's getting heavy though, and my arms are tired! Any other positions to try that would be easier on me?
