H guys I've just decided to start EC with my 15 week old daughter.

At the moment I can catch a wee in the morning, when she first wakes up I hold her over a bowl and she pees.
Other than that I don't notice any cues. I'm trying to have her bare bottomed all day so I can see when she wees n what facials she makes, when she starts weeing (while she lays on mat) is it best that I let her finish n make the cue noise or scoop her up quickly n hold her over the bowl n make cue noise?

Any other tips you guys have for getting started would be greatly appreciated!

I scoop them up and put them on the potty.  If you notice that she usually pees about 15 minutes after the last pee, you can also offer the potty at 14 minutes. Once she understands the point of the potty, she will push out her pee when you offer and you won't have to watch so hard for cues.
