DD is 16 weeks and I started EC at 2 weeks. Up until about last week things were so good!! Some days no misses, all poos in toilet since two months and it just generally felt great. Oh, and she was diaper free at night and rarely wet the bed. Since it is summer I also had her diaper free all the time at home and felt very positive about that. Sure, misses happen and I got peed on a fair bit but I always felt positive. Now I think DD is going through a growth spurt (she is very fussy while nursing, which makes it hard for me to catch her cues!) and it feels a little like things are falling apart! Vastly more misses that catches, several pees a night on the diaper pad she sleeps on, several dramatic poo accidents (but with that at least her schedule is WAY off, because she is nursing so much).... and I feel like I'm often getting it wrong. And feel as though if anybody were watching this they would be right to think the whole diaper free thing is crazy!
I know it's not about catches, it's about communication, but I guess that s where I feel like I'm not doing well.
Any encouragement? I'd love to hope this was a phase....that the success we had before will be like groundwork and things might go back to how they were and that it wasn't just some odd beginners luck... Of course, as I mentioned we are going through this thing where she is very fussy while nursing, which was another thing that was going well, so I think I'm just feeling a little discouraged.
