We have, in a relaxed way, ECed since birth. Now I feel we are stuck and for the very first time I feel a bit discouraged. I feel like we are at the same place non-ECed 2 year old might be. DD has 100% pooped in toilets/potties for well over a year. Pee is another issue. At home and naked she usually pees in the potty. Occasionally she doesn't get there in time. And several times a week she goes on the floor not near a potty (with no apparent attempt to get there). Outside naked she goes all over the place. When we are out she will say if she has to poo. And will sometimes tell me if she wets her diaper. She will go, usually, when we give her the opportunity, which we try to a lot. BUT she very rarely tells us that she NEEDS to go and then will go in her diaper (even at home if we just got home and she still has a diaper on). We do occasionally take very short trips in the car or stroller with only underwear. We had a very brief period where she did tell us or sign thatr she needed to potty. That was 1/2 to a year ago.
HOW do I get her to tell me that she has to go/before she goes??!!
p.s. When do kids not have to go pee at night? I take her once or twice to the potty (at the foot of the bed). I take her because having to pee usually wakes her up and then she will pee in the bed. She sleeps naked.
