Hi everyone, i ec'd my 2 boys, but now im having a girl. Is there anything i should know aobut ec'ing a girl? Do i need to get different stuff? Should i be more careful about avoiding infections? On the other hand, some things might be a lot easier, like the middle of the night pee. It was always hard to get that in the right place, but with a girl, much easier i imagine, and none of that squirting all over your face! That was fun
Thanks to anyone who has been there done that
You got the trickier gender out of the way first! Girls are easy! No aiming, just wipe front to back after poos, and yes nighttime is a breeze--I barely even woke up when holding dd over a bucket beside the bed. I just laid down a towel under the bucket for any overspray but that was rarely an issue. As for me, I am adjusting to ec'ing a boy. We are having great success catching poos but pees are definitely messier than with dd, nor have I figured out a good nighttime strategy yet. But ds is only 11 days old so I'm sure we'll get there eventually... Good luck to you!
