With my first I had no idea what EC was and wasn't really trying to do it (obviously, since I was unaware of this concept) but she routinely woke up dry after naps and in the morning, so I began putting her on a potty since we cloth diapered and I didn't want to add to the laundry mess. She potty trained super easy at 2.5 years old.
Second one I did nothing with.
Third one I was a diehard EC'er and we were very successful until she began walking and became a stubborn toddler around a year. She went through phases where it seemed she was nearly done with diapers for a week or two, then going back to them full time. Now, here we are at 2.5, we began "potty training" complete with bribery a week ago and she's nearly completely pee trained, but not poop trained.
This one I'm going back to my original method with the first baby, just putting him on the potty if I go to change his diaper and notice it's dry. But I'm putting in NO extra EC effort.
