I'm sure that we are not among the most hardcore EC'ers here, because we miss all the time! I was surprised to read that some EC babies have only had a handful of poopy diapers EVER. Wow! I'm impressed. We did EC with our dd starting at 6 months, and she never had a solid poo in a diaper, so I do understand as they get older. But starting out with a newborn with the bf poops, its hard to catch EVERY one. At least for me.
