I tried to EC with Dylan when she was 3 or 4 weeks old, but she NEVER made any signal as to when she had to pee. The only ones I ever caught were when she'd just finished eating or woke up from a nap, and I watched for any kind of cue at all, there was none. I could easily tell when she had to poop, though, but she hated being held over the sink. I now realize (thanks to this forum) that she did not feel enough. I want to try again (she is 7 weeks) but she takes over an hour (start to finish) to get a whole poop out and its a bit traumatic for her. Should I wait until she has better bowel muscle control and isn't pooping 10 times a day for an hour each time?
