I did EC with my first and loved it, then I had a second who was an autumn/winter baby and it was too hard to get off the clothes to catch much....and I so regret not doing it with her more as she's still in dipes at 20 months.
I have not done any EC with this one yet but he's only 2.5 weeks old. I think having a summer baby, I'll do it again.
I'm often just too tired to hold him up over the potty/sink/toilet, so I let him go in his diaper even though I know he's about to go and could have caught it. I make the cue noise, though.
* His lack of head control makes it tough sometimes. Even holding him in the newborn position, his head slinks off to the side. If I had bigger breasts, this wouldn't be a problem.
I can't imagine doing it if he was in more than the diaper and t-shirt he wears now. And luckily our winters are pretty mild here, so i think baby legs should keep him warm enough (and he should be big enough for them to stay on ) by then.
At what age did you start ECing with your first? Did you spend much time doing diaper free in the beginning? I get too nervous to do it for long. Maybe once we eventually get to the park...
