I know this hasn't been updated in awhile- but I haven't found any more recent threads aimed at late ECing.

 

We weren't planning to start until after this week, or at least not until later this week- when we were both finished with finals so could focus on it. We have a potty, though, and two days ago started putting kiddo on it diaperless just to make it something familiar. Well, yesterday I decided to on a whim- and our baby actually peed in it! Then I did again after the afternoon nap. It took kiddo awhile to wake up enough, and after showing more interest in a book I started reading to him and about halfway through the book he started to go. My patner put him on after a nap again today, just played for awhile and didn't think we'd had a catch- then, after taking kiddo off, saw it was full. We don't even have to help him "aim". Definitely a hopeful start! Kiddo doesn't mind sitting on the potty for a few minutes at a time, which is definitely good. I try to signal when I notice he's peeing, but in the diaper I never notice. We're trying to get in the habit of putting kiddo on the potty for diaper changes, just to give the chance, although that hasn't resulted in any catches.
