9 month walker and new to EC

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I just started EC with my 9 month old daughter and she doesn't seem to like to sit the toilet to eliminate, also since she's walking she doesn't really like my wearing her, she just wants to move around or she gets cranky. One of the hardest things for me is figuring her cues.

 

Is there any tips or advice I can get with this situation?

Did you notice cues from her before you stopped using diapers?  Does she have her own potty that is closer to the ground?  Maybe she would respond better if you hold her over a potty area instead of having her sit.  

Hoping for more suggestions for you. :)

I can't really help with late-start EC but I can say that having lots of potties around in the play area is helpful with very active babes. Also keeping her nakey as much as possible - maybe outside playtime while it's warm? The more using the potty becomes a regular thing, the easier it gets, though developmental stuff like walking and teething can disrupt your groove anytime.
