Well I really wanted to do EC with DS but I was so stressed out with his *high-needs* personality and he didn't want any part of it so I just dropped it. Now he's 15mos old & I feel like (based on his cues) I'd like to try EC again or early potty learning but he HATES HATES HATES the potty. OK let me rephrase that... he loves the potty as long as he doesn't have to sit/stand near it. He is sort of obsessed with the thing actually. We have 2 potties, an Ikea one & a Safety 1st one, and he is always playing with them, carrying them around the house, even tries to pick up other kids' potties when we're on playdates. He also loves watching DH & I use the potty, wants to help wipe (LOL no thank you!) and flush... and he also says "poop" just prior to or after going, and also recently started saying "pee" when he pees. (Haha funny story, he was BF'ing & pulled off and I leaked a few drops & he pointed to the wet spot on the bed & said "pee?" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">) ANYWAY, sorry I am all over the place today... so we try to give him naked time & let him play with the potty but if we try to sit him on it he screams hysterically. I have only tried a couple times, I really don't want to push it, but at the same time I feel like he's saying "I'm ready" but I can't figure out how to help him.
