DD is 6.5 months. We've been ECing from 2 weeks old and in general, I think it is great. Of course, we've had ups and downs but I'm finding this latest down discouraging. We were doing great - between 1-3 misses a day, and I was really proud. Felt like we were just hitting our stride and it all felt natural and relaxed. But now, for about a week it has been way off. Too many wet diapers to count (though I know /i shouldn't count anyway!) and we can't seem to get back in the zone. I think what is most frustrating is when I try to pee her, she doesn't go, I put her diaper on, she goes... and then we are off like that all day. Nights are still good, which gives me comfort!
We just started BLW a few weeks ago, and it is going wonderfully - she's a real eater. So maybe things are just new for her.
Now....I know this all comes with the territory.... I know it will probably change. It's a journey. But I feel like I need to hear from you other EC mothers. Any tips for getting through these times? (tell me you have times like this too...) We've been using prefolds and covers more because it is cold....(actually, I suppose because we started this a few weeks ago when she had a cold and there was more random pooping....) Maybe I thought using a diaper (I check frequently) would help me not be obsessed but maybe we should go back to bare bottom basics!
Ok, sorry for my ramble. I may just be talking this out with myself but feel free to chime in with your words of wisdom and encouragement.
