Hello MDC mamas!<br><br>
I've been reading at this website for a few months now but mostly on the Unassisted Childbirth forum, which is how I birthed my first son. Now that he's here we've been doing EC.<br><br>
Since he was a day old I would say "push!" when he'd poop. Then starting at 4 weeks old I would bring him to the sink when I anticipated a poo and tell him "push" and more times than not he would go. We got better and better at this and recently I decided to try to catch pee's as well.<br><br>
The little guy is thrilled about this. Ever since I tried doing this full time he's been making leaps and bounds in EC.<br><br>
I've been reading Infant Potty Training and DiaperFree although I haven't finished either book yet. Reading while I have time, usually when I'm nursing him.<br><br>
I was using diapers as backup until recently... like right now he's sitting bare bottomed on my lap while I type. He's 2 months old, BTW. I have a bucket beside me so when he cues I just hold him over the bucket and when he's done I return him to my lap.<br><br>
I've been reading old posts on this forum and learning SO MUCH from you ladies. I've been trying some of your techniques and gaining confidence from your wisdom.<br><br>
A big thank you!! The past 3 days we've "caught" EVERY poo in the potty (and he goes a LOT- more than 5 times a day usually) and most pee's.<br><br>
I have some comments and questions but I think I'll put them in new posts so they don't get lost in my introduction.<br><br>
Glad to be here and I am looking forward to getting to know all of you better,<br><br>
