I have been ec'ing my dd since 6 weeks old, she is 3.5 mo now and I can't seem to hold her over the sink or toilet without her pee going all over her and sometimes me. It seems to run onto her butt a bit or a bit on her legs. Sometimes I see it go out in a perfect stream and not even touch her body. Any tips for how to hold her or is this normal?? We have been using the bblp 90% of the time but when out I want to be accurate and clean. Any advice???

hehe DD is 3m and I have to change my shirt quite a lot. I swear DD pee can defy gravity.

I have found that if you do the potty hold and lean waaaay forward it usually keeps the pee from rolling back. Fortunatly DD likes this position for getting rid of gas too, so she doesn't mind.

When you are done there will still be pee all over her, but not your shirt hopefully. I just use a little TP to wipe the pee off of her.

I've been wondering this too...apparently our Stellas are quite alike! I may be using less dipes, but more tp to wipe up the little pee spots that end up on her. I'm afraid to hold her angled forwards over the sink, lest she fall forwards into the faucet before I can catch her, so I just let lean back against me and let the pee fall where it may!

Thanks for the tips shaggy daddy!!! Like New At This, i am afraid to lean forward with dd. I don't quite understand how to hold her from falling forward if both hands are supporting her legs. Any hints??

have you tried lying her along your arm so she is sort of sideways instead of 'back to belly'? We get a kind of fountain effect that way that doesn't run on to me!

I lean my DD forward. She doesn't fall forward because she's leaning on her legs. DD is only 6 weeks old but when she's peeing she has still been able to balance herself just fine (since 1 week) against her thighs, which are supported by me. The only way she falls is from side to side or back- she has never fallen forward.

It's not that the stay-at-home-parent gets to stay home with the kids. The kids get to stay home with a parent. Lucky Mom to DD1 (4 y) and DD2 (18 mo), Wife to Mercenary Dad
