I haven't been posting here because my EC baby graduated. We were doing EC with a diaper backup and right around 17 months she started to go get the potty when she needed to go (that's about the age kids were typically potty trained before disposable diapers).

Now I have a potty trained two year old. I feel so brave when we go out of the house with a diaperless toddler!

.. but there are a few unintended consequenses of EC.

1. she loves to go potty. She wants to go potty, wipe butt, wash hands, and then do it again, and again and again....

2. she won't go in a diaper at all if she can avoid it. She wears a diaper at night but If she wakes up she takes her diaper off and wets the bed. It drives me nuts, but I can't really scold her because she's got the right idea.
