Thanks for the reply. DD is swaddled to sleep, so we aren't really communicating at all while she's sleeping. When she's awake and I think she has to poo I hold her in a squat and signal her. I'm thinking that if I can learn when she has to poo I'll be less scared to keep her bum uncovered (had to scrub poo out of the carpet today). Sadly, we aren't really communicating with pees because we're using disposables right now, so I have no idea when she pees. (Not too happy about this).We live in an apartment without a washer and dryer and its too overwhelming for me to do laundry at the community facilities every day with a two week old. On the other hand, I planned on not using a diaper service because we were going to go diaper free, so we wouldn't be needing it... now I'm wondering, though. I'm just feeling a little crazed with the new baby, and thinking about trying to EC is making me feel more stressed out, so I guess we'll just take it slow. I'm still learning how to comfort her and breastfeed her and sleep with her, and don't feel like I can keep track of ECing too. But then again I feel guilty about keeping her poor bum diapered in evil disposables. It all gets easier, right? LOL.
