My DD is 8 months old now. We ec'ed when she was around 4 months old, and I found it relatively easy to catch her pees and poops and that time. But this (on top of other things) wore me out so much that we stopped after a month or so when her routine changed (she stopped pooping during nursing, doesn't always pee when she wakes up, etc). She's in little cotton undies with a folded cloth thick enough for 1 pee-- I cue her whenever she pees, or change her right away, but rarely offer or take her to the potty.


Now my dd is fully mobile and hates being changed. She doesn't like to be laid on her back, and everytime I change her, which is 10-12 times during waking hours, she cries. Wet or soiled undies don't bother her at all. I'm thinking maybe we should start trying to offer the potty again? I've tried leaving her bottom free, but she pees a lot at one time, and then plays in the puddle. I guess I'd rather not have to deal with that... 


I'm just wondering what's the best way to handle this...
