Leo is going on 9 months now. We didn't start ECing into somewhere in the 6 month range. I would say that in these last few months since we started he has gone in his potty about 10-15 times give or take. Once I notice he is trying to go to the bathroom I immediately take his diaper and pants off and put him on there. I usually bring the toy he is playing with at the time in there with him. I wait usually 15 minutes or until he starts getting really fussy before I take him off. He never goes though...
I am not sure if he is too distracted by playing or he just lost his focus on trying to poop during the transfer.
Also- I practice making grunting noises with him and use the sign for potty when I put him on there.
This is all very frustrating because we have had SO many failed attempts. I will admit that I only read one article about ECing before I decided we should try it. I think I need to do some more reading/research but I guess it is a lot easier said then done.
