Like I posted above, we are not EC'ing - would have loved to, but with a special needs older brother I don't have the time.
But my 17 month old has started becoming aware of his eliminating and so I figured why not leave the diaper off and try a little EC'ing. Did that for a few weeks and now he loves to go on the potty whenever his diaper is off.
Problem is this: He has started going every couple of seconds now whenever I take his diaper off. I've let it go on, going back and forth to the potty, saying "yay" and then flushing it, walking out and then going back in again and again so he can push real hard to dribble a few drops and do the whole routine over again.
Finally when I find myself going crazy, I put the diaper back on. Im sure he would go on forever, although its only lasted 5 minutes at most before I lose patience and put the diaper back on.
So here's the question - I dont want to discourage him, but I also have no patience to keep going back and forth to the potty all day. Is this going to end? Is it because of the newness of going on the potty? Or maybe he doesn't know how to hold it just yet?
Please - advice would be so great right now! If he's ready to lose the diapers, or even just experiment, Im with him. I want to help him any way that I can to have a good potty learning experience.
