As for resources, I recommend Infant Potty Training (Laurie Boucke) and Diaper Free (Ingrid bauer). They were both great, and I didn't even have to buy them. The library was happy to purchase them for me. :) Diaper Free Baby.org is also a great resource, as is the EC board on this site. The Diaper Free book gave me one great piece of advice that I still follow: to avoid praise for pottying. I adhered to this, because I didn't want him to ever feel manipulated in this way, or that his worth was connected to whether he peed in the 'right' place. We were just matter-of-fact about it. Like, a simple "You went pee in the potty!" Not "Wow, you are amazing! That's awesome!! Good job little dude!" (even though the latter is probably what you'll be thinking!) :)
When it comes to night, you may be better off not worrying much about it for a while, depending on your baby. :) You will need all the sleep you can get those first weeks. But one thing I noticed with my son early on is that he usually woke up crying when he had a full bladder. As a general rule, he didn't ever just pee unknowingly in his sleep. However, a lot of babies dislike being removed from their warm bed to visit the potty/sink/whatever receptacle. You can try nursing while holding their little butt over a bowl (a handy trick ...just be careful not to spill the contents in a sleepless haze). Those first couple of months are hazy. I know by the time my son was 4 months, I was kind of struggling because when he woke in the night my first inclination was to potty him, THEN bring him to bed and nurse back to sleep. But he really wanted the boob first and would get quite upset. I was torn, as I didn't want to miss a pee and I didn't think he could hold his bladder that long. My husband try it anyway, and it worked...he held his bladder, and pottying was then easier because he now had a full belly and was calm and happy again. By six months, I felt that nighttime pottying was actually easier than daytime. Kids are all different, but these are some things that worked for me.
We started EC'ing when my son was about a month old. We caught a pee the second time I held him over the sink and within just a couple of weeks, I felt we had a real connection on the matter. I was soon regularly catching a lot of daytime poops and pees. We had our ups and downs, and I never went completely diaper free--we kept a dipe on him for peace of mind, and I wont lie, we went through a lot of diapers, but we always were sure to respond just as quickly as if he didn't have one on. By the time he was a year, and the months leading up, I had him in trainers a lot of the time. By 14-15 months, we were totally diaper free during the day. Over the next month I noticed that in the mornings his nighttime diaper didn't feel wet (despite nursing all night), so I just stopped putting on one him before bed. By 18 months for sure, he had night trained himself without any effort on my part. I still keep a waterproof pad on his bed under his sleeping spot though, just in case. My mom bought us four when he was born and they have proved invaluable. They've saved our mattresses from more pee, vomit, and spit up than I care to remember.
