Aidan is almost 13 months old, and we have been ECing/early potty "training" for about 3 weeks. we are using the EC method (fun, no punishment or anything of the sorts), but due to his "advanced age"
, i hesitate calling it "EC".
things are going well, but i have some concerns.
firstly, i want Aidan to be comfortable, this means a couple of things. i do not want him sitting in his own filth, and i would like him to be "trained" as early as possible, to avoid the dipes. of course if he is more comfortable in dipes (which he is not), that too is fine w/me. its all about the boy
we go diaperless, mainly it causes me to be more on the ball, and is tons easier, than removing clothes or even a diaper.
being that he is so old, he really doesn't signal much when he has to pee. sometimes he is aware of it, mostly he is not. i'm finding his pattern and am putting him on the potty when he "should" have to go. i also rely (or need to rely) on intuition. my intuition of when he has to go is quite accurate.
okay, i'm quite tired
, and feel i'm not getting to my point, sorry ladies
regardless, w/him being nudie, he does pee on the floor on occassion. no problem w/me or hubby, but when i miss these pees, does it confuse him? and when we go out and i put him in a diaper, doesn't that confuse him as well?? i guess my big question is, is starting EC so late going to be detrimental to him in some way? i'm just trying to do right by him, and worry that maybe i'm doing more harm than good.
thanks for listening to my ramble, maybe i should go to bed and think it over
