I was here a few years ago with my first, and I'm back now with my new born. I'm enjoying this journey a lot more this time because I have more experience, and because I have no attachment to an outcome.
Things are going well, his cues are clear and he seems to hold it if I can't respond for a couple minutes. Ironically my 3.5 yo has started holding his in till he nearly goes in his pants finally resulting in a bit of poo in his undies today. He keeps saying it's because going to the bathroom takes too long. I have some concerns for the health risks and wonder if it has more to do with having a baby in the house.
Anyone want to share stories etc about ECing siblings?
Have any of your children used elimination as a form of getting attention?
When I had my second child my first child was 4 years old. He hadn't had an accident since he was 2.5 years old, yet when the new baby came home he pooped in his bed! Quite a shocker for us. It didn't last long at all, luckily. But I have heard it is quite common for older siblings to start having accidents when a new baby comes around.
Hopefully it will pass soon, but maybe in the meantime try to make where he goes potty a little different or exciting? Maybe he won't mind the wait if he has something new to do.
And congrats on ECing number 2! I always imagine I would be much more relaxed if I had another child and EC'd again.
