I am a SAHM and dh works full time but he is EC'ing like a pro. He is the sort of guy that wouldn't read anything about EC either but he has watched me do it and that was enough. At first I was the one figuring it all out, the timing, cues, etc and he was dumping the potty for me. When he had dd he was always changing diapers. It only took about two weeks of that before he was trying. Now he loves it and thinks it is soooooooo much easier. It always suprises me when he says "she has to go" and I say "but she just went!?!" and sure enough she goes for him. He is very intuitive too. If you are so attatched to the cute diapers then just use them as undies rather than a toilet!!
