    Dear all, Our baby is now 6 weeks old and we've been doing ec almost fulltime in the past 4 weeks. We tried to take it easy and not over-obsess. Than the micro-pees came in (2 to 3 times per day he would have a bulk peeing pattern of 5 pees within 10 minutes). Than cramps came in. And my hands...

    I've been reading about EC for awhile and and decided to give it a go since last Thursday. The first night, my son pee'd in the toilet and I felt very encouraged. He pee'd once a day for 3 days straight. But since Sunday he has started rejecting the potty. He will not sit on the toilet seat and...

    Hi Everyone, I started EC with my daughter since she was about 6 weeks old. We used to hold her over the sink initially and then since she was doing so well. We got a Bjorn Smart Potty for her. We have placed it over the slab next to the sink and hold her on top of it for her to go. We are able...

    Hi ladies, Please. Help. Me! (Sorry in advance for the super long post).... I really am at the end of my rope here. My son is 10.5 months old, and has been constipated for several months or longer. I have tried EVERYTHING I can think of and spent lots of money trying to resolve this issue, and...

    Hi all, I'm having my first baby in September and I want to try EC from the start. I've purchased some organic cotton prefold diapers just to use kindof like undies for him and to catch any little messes. It's really cold in winter where I live so he's not gonna be able to be naked ALL the...

    <p>Hi there.</p> <p> </p> <p>I am new here. I have one daughter who we've been practicing EC with part time. She had a long break around 8-13 months where she refused to be in an EC position or see anything remotely related to toilets so we took a break with pampers.</p> <p> </p> <p>Now that...

    Hi, my 10 week old suddenly has really hard small bits in her poop. Saw an older post about this but there weren't any answers. Looks like small stones. Shes also not pooing as much.

    <p>When our beautiful little boy came into this world we spent a lot of those first few weeks naked at home. When we went out, we used organic cotton pre-folds and soon he  was in those diapers pretty much full-time. We did our best to keep him clean and dry, but it didn't always work out. Now...

    My daughter is nearly 9 months old. We've been ECing since she was a couple of weeks old. Good thing, too, because she often got upset right before she peed, and I would have never known why she was crying (since she was dry) if I didn't know she was aware BEFORE she peed.<br><br> At 2-3...

    <p>I have a 3 and half month old girl.  She's started getting offended and sharing her opinion loudly sometimes when I hold her over the potty.  I shush her a bit, and often she'll pee once she relaxes.  Am I setting myself up for failure later by having her potty when she doesn't want to, or...

    Hi,<br><br> My husband and I have been ECing with our son since he was about 2weeks old--he communicated so clearly right from the start that I actually caught a poo on his first day of life and a pee the first week before reading "Diaper Free" and intentionally cueing him.<br><br> I'd say we...

    I'm doing ec for the first time. We had a bit of a late start due to medical reasons, but well within reason at four months.<br> My DD does not signal when she has to urinate or defecate. She even acts oblivious when the fecal matter is coming out.<br> I consistently have my hand underneath to...

    We had such a sudden shift in our EC once my baby crawled. No more toilet. PoopingIin diaper almost overnight. I've read its common. I'm interested in what others are doing as I struggle to keep it up. And I struggle with cleaning up all the poopy diapers. So busy to figure out where to go from...

    <p>Just thought I'd see if anyone else has a "been there, done that" story. I EC'd my first son. We pretty much hit all the classic stages, had a few frustrations as a new mom and first time ECer but it was a great overall experience and pretty much what I expected. Along comes baby #2. Started...

    <p>Hi there.  DH and I use EC part time with our 3 month old DD.  First time we gave it a go was when she was 6 weeks old.  We did it sporadically until she woke from a nap once and I thought I'd hold her over the potty to see if that's why she awoke.  She peed and then went back to finish her...

    <p>Back when I was pregnant, I read a lot about EC and thought I'd be well prepared for when he was born. We bought cloth diapers with inserts, which we would use only when we couldn't go bare bottomed. However, now at day 15, i'm feeling quite deflated and daunted, partly because he's my first...

    What to do at night? I use a gmd fitted with wool cover. Ds doesn't wake up if diaper is wet, he does nurse through the night though <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"><br> I don't know if it's better for him to feel the wet...
