I'm a first time, stay at home mom, of girl/boy twins (14 months). We just started EC three weeks ago (part time). The first week, I thought this is easy. I'm catching pees and poops. Fast forward three weeks and I'm lucky if I can catch two pees a week! I even try after they wake up and after they eat. They'll sit happily on the potty with no elimination and then two minutes later I see them peeing/pooping on the floor.
We switched out of Pampers during the day, except for nap time, and we are either diaper-less or wearing cotton training pants. I have been observing and cannot tell when they are about to pee or poop, until a couple of seconds before they eliminate (they usually just stop running around for a couple of seconds and then they pee/poop). Then they start running again.
If they are wearing a cotton training pant, they won't even come to me for quite some time after they eliminated.
It seems like everyone else's kids "tell" them that they have to pee/poop or that they already went pee/poop. Mine are content with staying in a dirty cotton training pant or just peeing/pooping on the floor.
I feel embarrassed and frustrated, because it seems like everyone else can do this. Why can't I?
