I am new here. I have one daughter who we've been practicing EC with part time. She had a long break around 8-13 months where she refused to be in an EC position or see anything remotely related to toilets so we took a break with pampers.
Now that the weather's better and she's outgrown that phase, she is bare-bottomed a lot and often sits on her potty (we have 2 lying around the apartment) and usually pees by herself in it 1-2x/day. Rest of the time on the floor, and when I get tired of sponging the floor, I put a pampers on her.
We don't do night time ECing because we like to sleep. She usually wakes up crying/shouting with a full pampers (we don't go in her room straight away and I suspect she pees not only during the night but also upon awakening in the morning).
Now she's had a fever for a couple of days but also, and here's where I need help, she's calling me because she's peed in her pampers. If I come fast enough (which I rarely do, I wanna sleep), she might pee in her potty after I take her out of sleeping bag and diaper. Or usually I acknowledge that she peed and either I change her or I tell her to go back to sleep. She 1-3x/night I think, with varying timetables...
How to proceed? I don't want to have to go in her room various times a night. But on the other hand, is she ready to start eliminating on her own if I leave her bare-bottomed during the night? i.e., get out of bed herself (she still sleeps in a cot, not a big girl's bed) if we change her bed and sit on the potty herself and go back to bed?
What would you do? Or better, what did you do at this stage that worked or did not work??
Thanks for reading and thanks for your feedback/advice.
