I was hoping that it would be a great pick-me-up to remind me why we're doing this and encourage continued patience and gentleness as I'm experiencing more pressure to PT. I didn't really get that, so maybe I'll have to go check out her book from the library again.
That wasn't really the purpose of the article, and for what it was, it was pretty decent. I hope more people will consider EC now that they've read an article about it. My only real issue was how she answered the question about regression. While EC'd babies may not have an emotional reason to regress, as in start having accidents all of a sudden after being PLed for a long time, they do have potty pauses, and they don't always seem to be moving in a straight line towards graduation, and I hope people don't get the wrong impression.
Also, I like that they pointed out you can still diaper and do EC. I think she did a good job of making it approachable and not seems so difficult. I thought it would be so much work with my first, but having a second EC babe I know it has actually made so much less work for me. No poopy diapers since he was 6 months alone was a huge relief, especially doing cloth. And we were fully "graduated" by 20 mos, where now a year later his peers are still struggling.
Ophelia, my EC babe is Kieran too! He'll be 3 in July.
yeah, i was glad to finally have an EC article in the magazine, but didn't really get a lot out of it. I guess it was kind of an 'introduction to EC'. I think it also makes it sound easier than it actually is!! We have basically been on a potty-pause for about a month or so. (dd is 11 months)
