OK, this looks like fun!Name: Jodie
EC'd babe(s): DS, now 3.5. DD, just turned 1.
EC'ing since: early 2004 when my son was 10 months old.
Other kids (+ages): DS, almost 7. DD, just turned 5
Diapers (use 'em? what sort? how often?):
Our system is pretty simple. My older two were diapered in modern cloth, fitted and AIO's etc.
For DS, we were in Australia where the weather is perpetually warm so he just went bare bum all the time and I just watched for pre-elimination signs. I suppose it was more like elimination timing than elimination communication because, as a late starter, he wouldn't be cued.
For DD, I'm using ordinary girls knickers (size 2, Disney brand ). She also spends a lot of time bare bottomed but I've reverted to a much more basic stash of terry towels (origami folded and fastened with a snappi) and hemp prefolds with wool covers for nights.
Favorite 'potty': It doesn't have a brand on it but it's old - obtained second hand and commercially available through Target in Australia. (btw, Target in Australia is a great source of cloth diaper essentials. I was disappointed to discover this is not the case in the US!)
Other info: We've just come out of a lo~ong potty pause incorporating learning to walk and cutting essential teeth. We always caught most poos but now we're having more and more success with catching wees every day!! She has started to motion for the potty or sit unprompted. We just found our first mystery wee in the potty a few days ago so I think we're on the home stretch now. We don't EC at night but she sometimes wakes up dry in the mornings so I think we'll just wait it out until she gives the signal that she doesn't want to wear a diaper to bed at night. With DS that was around 18 months old.
