This is a very new topic for me...and very interesting. My 11 mo ds comes to me when he has to poop for closeness/comfort, and when he has to pee with his diaper off. Not so sure about peeing when diaper is on..<br><br>
I have a bunch of questions...<br><br>
How do I get started?<br>
Do you let baby go entirely naked around the house all day or dress them just w/out a diaper?<br>
What do you do at nite time and when you go out? He nurses sometimes very frequently at nite and is usually really wet in the morning...hates to be up/changed at nite when he wants to be sleeping.<br>
I do have a little potty, not tried yet...should I start with it vs. the toilet?<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">: Would love some help to get started!!!<br><br>

I'd love to know the answers to some of your questions too. I've only done EC with some kids I babysit, and I just let them run around naked (or in the case of girls I put a dress on them with just nothing underneath). It seems to make them very aware of what their body is doing and I can make the PSSSSSS sound right when they're in the act. One of the little girls caught on right away to the sound and now makes the sound herself. It seems like once they learn how to cue maybe you could put diapers/clothes on them again and they could cue when they need them taken off hopefully? I'd love to learn from the experienced moms and dads out there since we'll soon be trying this with our daughter.
