Another late starter
Hi from another newbie!
I have just started EC with my 5.5 month old son. I had read about EC back when I was pregnant and researching cloth diapers, but was afraid of the "mess" aspect until now. OK, I'm still a little afraid
: LOL. Anyhow, fast forward to few weeks ago when I noticed that many times when I sat my ds in a bouncy seat in the bathroom (while I was using the toilet myself), he would pee/poop (in his diaper) while sitting there! I figured I would start to sit him on the potty in the am and after naps when he often needs to poop. He still poops at least 4 times/day.
Well, since starting, we've "caught" probably about 75% of poops on the potty! We don't have a baby potty yet, I just sit him between my legs as I sit too.
We have only caught 1-2 pees so far, though. I can't quite figure out his cues for that, until he's actually going! At that point, he will kind of stare off for a few seconds while he releases the pee.
We use only cloth diapers - usually snappi'd prefolds or fitteds with wool, or a tri-folded PF in a cover. We have a few pockets/AIO type diapers for "out and about".
So, now that we've got the poo catches going, any advice on how to continue? I have been trying to at least check for wetness frequently to keep him as dry as possible (although I pretty much already did that before, anyhow.) Naps and night will probably be hard for us to go diaper-free, as he usually wakes up soaked.
Thanks, any help/advice is greatly appreciated!
