Oh my goodness. I just read a few of the sites and the journal of ECing by another member of MDC.

I am a SAHM - could I really do EC? How did you guys start? Just strip off the diaper and go? I usually know when she is going poop - but pee how can you tell? This sounds really interesting...joy joy if I can save the earth and money at the same time!

Yep, that's what I did . . . stripped off the diaper and just went for it.

I tried to keep a prefold underneath him throughout the day, but often I ended up finding out he needed to pee by a wet side, lap, floor, whatever.

After Day 1, it made sense to me WHEN he was peeing.

He peed about 10 minutes after nursing and about 10 minutes beyond that again. Then he's dry until he nurses again.

He poops only once a day now but he poops a looooooong time when he does.

Before he pooped once in the morning and once in the evening and his face and grunts told it all!

Was Baby Kenny born 12.21.02? Baby Aya was born 12.28.02!

I was looking at your site. Probably silly (and definitely off topic sorry!) to be exploring both options but perhaps you saw my post in the cloth diapering section?

I was just asking the other moms how to cd in the city w/o a washing machine! As a small business owner maybe you have ancountered this question before. Thanks for you help in both!
