EC mamas, please give me all your good tips on how to start ECing a toddler! She's just turned 17mo and I really think it's a good time to start although I wish I had sooner. It's my DHs fault, he is too scared to try and since we are all-carpet where we live, I sort of agree with him. But as of late, we've noticed her grabbing at her diaper (she's in cloth except for overnight) so I thought, heck, lets try EC!
So far I am trying the signs for poo, peepee and bathroom which she'll pick up on fast as she has with A LOT of signs so far. I explained to her that we are going to put on these cotton undies (which are just the bottoms from the dress sets we bought) and when she needs to go to tell mama. Of course, I'm sure she wont catch onto this right away but that's my spiel so far. She already had a poopy moment so I took her to the potty. I have a pink potty seat that I use over the toilet but she's scared of it and every time I put her on it, she cries to get off. Going to convert it to a travel potty and put it on the bathroom floor instead.
Any suggestions/tips and ideas are welcome! TIA!
