I havent been doing EC with my 11 month daughter but we have been putting her on the potty for a long time. We started sporatically when she was 3 months and stepped it up when she was 6 months. Now she goes when she wakes up, after solids, at diaper changes and after her nap. More often than not she will at least pee. I would like to add some communication into the mix since she is also wetting her diapers. I do not use any sounds to cue her, I just have her sit on the potty for a little while. Do you guys have any pointers to where I can find info? I have read about EC but am fairly clueless to what signs she might be displaying.
We are in a simular situation as you. Our dd is 8 1/2 months and we've been doing this for almost 4 months. We don't have any specific signals from our dd. We go mostly by timing and occasionally we'll get her to tell us by using the baby sign for potty, though this is rare. Do you use baby signs already or would you consider using it? I have always loved the philosophy of it but even more so with pottying!
As for cueing her I think she just knows what the potty is for and goes. I usually say go potty while doing the sign for potty but truthfully she just knows that potty means go pee or poo.
Good luck! Keep us posted!!
