I have 16 month old and we've been doing EC from the beginning. We were not able to keep up with peeing, so we try to catch as many as possible, but concentrated on poops. DS has been been pooping a potty since 6 months except for a few days when we moved and few days when we were traveling. He can speak qu. ite well and asks for potty or says poop.
My question is, i just read this article: http://www.babble.com/toddler/toddler-health-safety/dangers-potty-training-early/
which has made me quite scared. My son has 1-3 BMs a day, some are quite firm and he does strain quite a bit (red face, pushes really hard). Most though are soft and pass easily, though the sheer volume is shocking!!! He pees very frequently and now i am worried this is a sign he has a stool blockage.
What are your thoughts on the dangers of young children holding there poop? Have we set up our child for problems/confusing him by not worrying about pees only poops??
Thoughts and resource links would be much appreciated.
