My nearly 19mo has been ECed since 8mo. We have only had a few poop misses since 12mo. Pee has ebb and flow (ha ha). We were better out and about (on timing) before 1yr than after. She tells me most of the time that she needs to pee, with an urgent loud squeaky squawk "PEE!.... PEE!" while grabbing between her legs. Much to people's laughter in public! Sometimes she seems to use it as an excuse, such as wanting out of the carseat. Around the house she is usually naked. Some days we have 5 accidents, though!!!! Some on them are soooo on purpose. She has her favorite places, her brothers bed, and closet, my bed. She has legitimate accidents at random places on the floor, but sometimes purposefully climbs on the bed, hides in the closet just to do it. I assume it is for a reaction I don't know? She is also most always dry at night as long as I am not in too deep of sleep to notice her stirring, needing to pee around 5-6am.
I am just so ready to call this done! I put some pul trainers I made on her when we are out. Sometimes, if she pees for me while out, I'll switch to panties because she gets sooo hot in the pul. I made the trainers with cotton sides, but they are still soooo hot. It's already getting to 100 degrees here!!!
How did people back in the 60's and before and in other cultures potty train/complete EC (aside from punishments etc, of course.) We've already given up diapers at home except bedtime and naptime. We talk about were peepee goes ALL DAY LONG, my world revovles around it. Yet as soon as I let my guard down I hear one of the older kids say "Oh no!!! Pee-pee on the floor!!!"
