Ok. Every time I have a problem with EC'ing, it seems like just posting it on here helps...maybe it makes me think about it better, or something. Anyway, here goes.
We've been EC'ing DD since she was two weeks, and she's almost twelve weeks now. We started out mostly offering at diaper changes, and gradually catching more and more as I became more aware of her timing. A couple weeks ago I started keeping her pretty much diaper-free during the day, and we were catching almost everything...we were regularly going anywhere from five to eight hours with no misses.
Anyway, toward the end of last week we started having a lot of misses. She also just started being really fussy a lot, and her patterns seemed to be changing, so I put her in diaper for a few days...but this week I decided I wanted to go back to having her diaper-free and just observing more than trying to catch so I could figure out her new patterns. Well, yesterday her patterns seemed the same as they have been (poop every other morning between 9 and 10 am; pee every twenty minutes in the morning and every hour in the afternoon). But lately it seems like every time I try to offer the potty she freaks out. She screams and arches her back--which is usually what she does when she doesn't need to go, but then she pees half a minute later. It's fine with me if she just doesn't want to go in the bathroom, and I don't mind getting peed on or cleaning it up, but I just want to know if this is normal for a three month old! I've tried peeing her outside, in a bowl, in the sink, and on a prefold in my lap, with varying success. Usually she is most happy about peeing when she first wakes up, and she's most upset about it with her rapid-fire pees in the morning. I had thought that maybe it was because she didn't need to pee so often anymore in the morning, but like I said, when I tried not catching them, she still was peeing every 20 minutes. Anyway...sorry so long; just want some thoughts on what could be causing this! Could she be about to hit a developmental milestone? (Like, I dunno, sleeping more than two or three hours straight at night? Tell me that's why this is happening!
