Hi everyone :-)
My daughter is almost 4 months old and we've been ECing since she was about a month old. For about the last three weeks my daughter has been pooing about every other day. I have been taking her to the sink whenever she wakes up from a nap and with every diaper change, but I haven’t been able to catch her doing anything for a while. What am I doing wrong??
I actually think that she pees the minute she wakes up and by the time we get to the sink, it's too late.
It's important to me to take my time when I pick her up after she wakes, and hold her for a minute before pulling down her diaper and rushing to the sink...
I suggest a tiny potty next to the sleeping area, or simply pottying her onto an open flat diaper. She can't hold it for long so having the receptacle close by is important =) Also, talk to her about it, tell her what you're doing, ask her to hold it, etc. EC is all about communication, after all =)
