Thanks Freddy - glad you poked your head in! I guess I didn't figure we'd catch 100% for a good while. I just was curious at what point people stopped using diapers and started using pull-up 'something or anothers.'

Today my dh finally got an idea of what it means to multi-task. I was at MDC, doing taxes, taking business calls, processing sales, EC'ing Kenny, feeding Kenny, playing with a 2 year old and a few other things. He said, "This would drive me insane - I'd HAVE to go to work!" :LOL :LOL

My oldest is 6 and can tell me when Kenny wants to poop! She is very fascinated with it, but has only one request . . . that in public places we use the potty with Kenny and not the sink. She embarasses easily and already thinks mommy is a wee bit odd! :LOL Can you tell she is the one that was ff, disposable diapered and well, our 'learning curve.' God bless her!

Hi ECers! Just checking in with our progress today. This AM when she woke up for her feeding (at 5:00)....I took her down and she did a big ole poop in the potty. Then she she woke up for the morning at 8:00 AM, she did both in the potty. Then later, she pee'd three times in a row in her Baby Bjorn potty.

We went out in the early afternoon and she was in the car for about an hour. No ECing....

We get home and her diaper was barely wet. She then pee'd alot in the potty. I nursed her and a couple minutes later, we got a big poop.

A couple minutes ago, she did another big poop in the potty and pee'd just for good measure. This stuff is just soo exciting DH doesn't get it, but then he doesn't change the majority of the diapers around here!

It's been a very good day for lil Miss Esme! No so bad for Mama, either. NOW, if big brother could just catch on too

Lisa

PS....Thanks Freddy, I kinda figured it out through looking at websites with pix of EC'd babies and trial & error.

See Lisa . . . it is fun! Kind of like a mind/communication game you can actually 'play' with a baby!!!

Your day sounds like ours - minus the potty (still waiting - shipped today).

Heather, I just went to your site for the first time and it's GREAT!!! I'm lovin' the eco-angle.... have you read my EC pamphlet on the green side of EC? it's on my links page.... that was definitely a big side of choosing EC, even the MAJOR eco-advantage of cloth dipes over "disposables" made me uneasy b/c of the waste you still have to produce using cloth.... I used to work for Greenpeace so I'm hard-core. :-)

Way to go!

Blessings,

Ahleemah

Ahleemah, so glad because I'm working on my current EC experience 'write-up' and planning on putting up an EC page now at the site. This is just too great an experience (albeit exhausting me today) to not have on the site. I will be sure to reference your site and the Yahoo Group that I have to receive a Daily Digest for b/c it is so incredibly ACTIVE!

I figure give mom the option and possibly pick up a few more 'supplies' for EC'ing.

I'm needing to get Snappi Fasteners . . . that works so quick with my prefolds for a quick off and on!

Jumping in a little late here, but thought I'd share my congrats and enthusiasm for everyone here trying EC!

I haven't been too successful lately, and I don't know if it's the age (8 mos) or what. Max has been crawling for over a month. He's cruising now and I rarely catch anything. When I take him to the potty, he tries to play with the seat or ANYTHING to just move. He is showing interest in the toilet, though... in sticking his hand inside!!

And, I have to admit to wanting to keep him bundled up. Our house is about 66 degrees, and it's COOOOOOOOLD outside-- blizzard-- here!

So I think about it daily, and I really wish I were more successful. I can't wait for summer, but by then he may have forgotten all we worked on.

I never did have luck with the potties. He always cried and still does if I set him on one. Always held him over something.

Good luck!!!!

He'll probably remember...I keep hearing about ECers who take a break and then it all comes back. Dd is 8 mo and it is hard for her to stop and potty when the time comes. We do better out than at home - I think the different toilets keep her interest. I'm hoping she doesn't get bored with the library toilets, we do great there and I love our new library.

Entertainment at the pot...Dd is fascinated with the toilet paper right now. Luckily, she only eats a tiny bit and remembers she doesn't like it. We also read books, her sitting on the big toilet between my legs. She's not liking her BB potty right now. This means we go to the toilet at night. Last night she only went once, then slept/stayed dry the rest of the night.

Juttas favorite pasttime on puplic toilets at the moment is tearing up one of those paper bags they provide for throwing away sanitary pads

At home a piece of dental floss to play with is high up the list.
