My son is 13 months and we have been ec'ing part time since he was 6 months. Well pretty much full time, except at night. Right from the start we did really well, and we hardly had any misses at all, even when we were out.
For the past couple of months it seems he doesn't really want to use the potty anymore.
Even when he hasn't gone for a while, he still arches his back, stretches his legs and screams.
A few minutes later he does it on the floor.
The past couple of weeks, he tells me he needs to go. He says pupu both for peeing and pooping. So when he says it, I take him, he doesn't do anything, and as soon as I put him down he does it.
It's driving me insane, because I keep having to clean up messes all the time. And if it's poop and I don't see it right away, he'll step on it, and take it everywhere... Although he usually tells me as soon as he does it, so I guess that's a good thing.
When I'm putting him to sleep, he'll stop nursing, and say pupu, I take him, and he doesn't do anything. So I put his diaper back on, and take him back to bed to nurse to sleep, and a minute later the same thing. It's so hard when I 'm already exhausted to keep doing this.
I feel very discouraged to the point, I don't feel like taking him to the potty.
Why is this happening? Is there anything I should do?
