How old is your baby?
Are you doing elimination communication too?
By the way, I'll be in your town briefly Friday morning for a Dr appt.
Can any of you relate?
I just went to another infant class tonight, and it was tough again.
My little guy let me know he had to go potty. I took him to the bathroom with his bblp. We was dry, and when I put him on the bblp, he went a little bit right away. Not a lot, but the class was almost over, so I hoped it was enough. (He's not real comfortable going in certain public bathrooms, particularly the chillier ones.)
Got back to the class, and right away he started to cry, that he had to go. I went to the back of the class and put him on the bblp there, although his diaper was already really wet.
People looked at me with my ds on the bblp, rolling their eyes again. (He's never actually peed or pooped in the bblp in the classroom since I'm usually not this brave to put him on in the classroom.) He usually only goes thru about 3 to 4 diapers in 24 hours, so he uses the potty lots in other places.
He already wet his diaper, so he didn't go in the potty. I felt stupid. Every time we're in class, he's so distracted, he has accidents and doesn't use the bblp. The other parents roll their eyes at me and I'm sure, are thinking I'm waisting my time.
DS gets upset, though, when he goes in his diaper and his diaper is wet.
I should ignore the other parents' looks and just let him use his bblp in the classroom, but it's tuff.
I sure don't get support there. Even the teacher doesn't support what I'm doing for him, and the other parents think I'm trying to raise a "little genious." Frustrating.
Sorry for the rant. Just thought maybe any of you might have suggestions or similar stories?
