Hello mommies, My son is about to be 5 months old.
I couldn't practice EC with him till 3 months, as he was having leaky poop all the time (common problem, happens with some babies, and goes away in 3 months).
During the 4th month, he would poop once in 3-5 days. So I dint bother with EC. I started using cloth diapers (like bumgenius, but indian brand). And then I totally forgot about EC until I saw the post on a friend's blog.
Since then I have been trying to make him poop over the sink after he wakes up and after he feeds. I also make ssss sound to make him pee. But everything has failed. He sometimes poops after I put him back in the nappy after getting tired of holding him over the sink. I recently ordered a potty - http://www.firstcry.com/1st-step/1st-step-baby-potty-seat/112434/product-detail . Pls tell me if it's the right kind to be used for 5 months old. Most other potty seats I saw were for older kids.
I want to know how other mommies started out with EC for kid this age? Any ideas on how to go about it?
