I actually bought it, but returned it because I didn't get much value out of it. I think I read it in two days though... maybe I should read it again?

Thanks for checking in! Things aren't much better. EC just never happened with this kid. It was easy from 0-4 months, but once he was on the move that was the end of anything "potty". He is however,...

Not sure, but she had 2 poop misses the other day, and five pee misses (most of which because I got too busy/distracted to remind her to go). AND she's started wetting the bed at night, and sleeping...

It's pretty crazy. He was crawling at 4.5 months, and full on running at 8.5 months. Sitting is NOT his strong suit. haha

I found that EC'ing a newborn was SOOOO much easier than starting later (my first I started at 4 months, my second on the day he was born). Just keep being consistent with timing (waking up, after...

I thought about backing off, but there's not much to back off from. LOL! I pretty much gave up on EC entirely (with trying to keep routine - if he sits, he sits. If not, then he...

I should also add that even though she has MANY words, she's got very delayed speech and rarely puts two words together. I can't help but wonder if something else is going on. If anyone has any...

I'd talk to her a bit more about it to find out if there's something deeper that you might be missing. Based on your post, it sounds to me  like she just might be frustrated. It's fun when it's...
