I have been
: on this forum for couple months thinking that I should introduce myself some day and this is the perfect opportunity, so here goes:
EC'd babe(s): Daniil, now 7.5 mo
EC'ing since:birth (2 days old)
Other kids (+ages): DS1 13y/o, DS2 11 y/o
Diapers (use 'em? what sort? how often?): don't use diapers anymore, just dress DS in undies or pants depending on weather, nakey in summer
Favorite 'potty': used to be bathroom sink, now he is happy with BBLP-like potty I made friends send me from my native country as did not know about BBLP at the time!
Other info: tend to miss about 25 % of pees during the day because don't pay proper attention to ds's signals, but don't stress myself about it.
DS1 was ec'd from 7 mo, DS2 from birth. Both were consistently using potty by 18mo, but that is the norm in my country. Because most people I know in US use disposables, I assumed that everyone does and almost started using them full time when DS went on a potty strike at 5mo. Now it is hard to believe that in spite of experience with DS1-2, I almost got swayed by sposies convenience and "they are not ready to use the potty until they are 2 y/o" notion!
But then I was soooo happy to find MDC and learn that people do EC in US!!!
I sent my huggies supply to a friend - I find that diaper free keeps me in shape better in terms of offering pottytunities and paying attention to his signals.
Sorry if its too long. BIG thanks to everyone on this board as without you DS's precious little bum would rot in huggies.
