I am a FTM and I was planning on starting on EC from day one, but now thay our baby is here I am totally lost! She is 4 weeks 3 days and all I've been able to manage is to say 'you're pooping' and give a cue when I hear her going. She seems to pee and poo at totally random times, some days she'll save it all up and do one huge poop, others she just does little ones throughout the day.
When I change her diaper I tell her she can pee or poop and give the cue and once in a while she does, but I don't think that has anything to do with my cue. I've tried holding her over the sink or toilet but it's very awkward and she gets upset. She also has a lot of gas so it's hard to tell the difference between that and the real thing.
I'd really love to EC, I was so excited about it, but I just don't know how to start, it's not as easy as it sounded! Any tips or advice would be appreciated.
